I had a couple basses that needed some attention, and I'm SUPER particular about quality, so none of the local folks measured up. My Roscoe LG-3005 needed a fret level/crown, but unfortunately, before my ownership, someone had attempted it before, just didn't do a very good job, and there wasn't enough fret material left to (re)do it right. Lookin' at a refret here. My Peavey Cirrus 5 needed a nut and a level/crown... similarly, someone attempted to lower the strings at the nut previous to my ownership, and took the grooves too deep. Oops. I'd heard all the raves about Mike Lull's work, and especially his fret work, so I packed'em up, sent'em off, and just got'em back. Well, it's all true, folks. These things are PERFECT now. I thought the Roscoe played pretty well before, forgiving a little fret buzz here and there, but nothing like now. He actually planed the neck before refretting... not huge probs there, just a few thousandths away from perfection, but prolly made all the diff in how the fret job came out. I'm equally happy with the results on the Cirrus, tho it's work was not nearly as "invasive". The bottom line is, I'm sure there's lotsa' great folks out there, but Lull's shop has my high end business from here on out. I absolutely could not be any happier with the results. They have my highest praise.
