Looking for a reputable luthier in MD/DC/VA/PA/WV...

  1. I would like to have my Stingray H converted to a Stingray HH. Not a huge task for a luthier by any means, but was hoping to find someone local who is TB recommended. Thanks!

    He's a telecaster nut, but he's done plenty of work on my bass and he has a 6 stringer himself. He is, above all else, extremely honest. He also works very quickly (pot changes, setups, rewiring, usually in under an hour).

    Philtone is very good if you are near Balmer.
