    Does anyone have any suggestions for a capable luthier in the Tampa/Clearwater area of Florida. I am looking to get some work(nut replaced, setup and pickup,preamp replaced) done on my basses. I might also get a bass refinished and would appreciate any suggestions for that as well, it does not necessarily have to be the same luthier. Thanks

    I think it was Bruce's father Joe who had all those Swanson basses for the Pittsburgh Symphony. (swanson bass info)

    I have an appointment with Alan (don't have last name at hand) from Atlantic Strings in Orlando. Did some research and he had several good recommendations. My appointment, set for March 8, is just for some set up tweaking. Nothing major. I was pretty blunt when I set up the appointment and asked about his experience working on basses; "probably a thousand or so" was his answer. I'll know more in March. Very nice person BTW, at least on the phone. I think he is the owner. They also have a store in Melbourne.

    Guess I should have asked, you want a double bass luthier, right?

    No, electric. Thank you for the response though.
