    Got a bud in N.C. with a broken neck that I'm trying to help. I know that Martin used to hang there but I don't know of anyone to recommend anymore. Any help?

    Hi Jeff,
    I'm very glad to be able to finally add something useful to the board!

    I use Jerry Pasewicz here in Raleigh. He does good work on a range of classical instruments. He is the recommended bass luthier for John Montgomery Violins (a pretty well known violin shop in town). Jerry's number is (919) 858-0429.

    There is also a guy named Greg Hanson that I have gone to before, but I don't remember his contact info. He used to work at Hoffman's back in the day.

    Hope that information helps!

    Jason

    Another central NC contact is Bob Beerman at the Bass Violin Shop (www.bassviolinshop.com) in Greensboro.
