Looking for good luthier in South Alabama

    I just got hold of a rear-routed alder/flame maple J-style body and undrilled Warmoth neck that need to be mated. Here's a list of the work I need done:

    Holes drilled into the neck pocket and neck heel (basically, a neck installation)

    Bridge installation (there are no holes for the bridge, nor any connection from the bridge area to the control cavity for the bridge ground)

    Rout the small channel into the neck pocket for truss rod adjustment (this body was designed to work with necks that adjust at the headstock, and the Warmoth neck adjusts at the heel)

    Enlarge the bridge pup rout for the wider Fender-style bridge pup (this one may not be necessary- I'll know when the body arrives).

    Are there any recommended luthiers in the Montgomery/Birmingham/Mobile area who do this sort of thing on a regular basis? Thanks in advance to anyone who can help me out.
