    I just acquired an '05 Corvette FNA Jazzman. Everything frets out above the 12th fret. My local tech was having trouble moving the truss rod and quit before causing any further problems. Before I open a can of worms by sending this to the custom shop or Germany, I'd like to get the opinion of someone that works with a lot of Warwicks.

    I'm looking for someone in South Jersey/ Philly area. Any recommendations would be appreciated. Thanks.

    Just off the top of my head I'm thinking Mike Virok (sp) @ Bordentown Guitar Repair in Joisee :D or Callowhill Guitars in Philly

    This guy does awesome work:


    Pete has done great work for me in the past and is scary with this depth of knowledge. If he can't do it, he will know someone who can.

    He also charges a fair price. Not cheap, but fair.

    Thanks for the recommendations. Just a quick question for anyone that has worked on a post '96 Warwick with the non-removeable 2 way truss rod....

    With frets buzzing from the 12th fret up, which way do I turn the truss rod? I would be adjusting it with the headstock facing me. Thanks.
