    I don't mind working on SX's but need some minor fret work on a CAR 71P that should be done by a pro.
    Also, does it make sense to send it out for a PLEK job; have no idea as to who or how much that might cost

    Your advice is appreciated

    (and it was built 39 years ago today on Mexican Indpendance Day; bet the afternoon shift at Fender was not turning out the best work that day)

    Plek is a bit much for an SX, but I had Phil Jacoby at Philtone.com in Baltimore do work on my SX jazz and it plays like a dream. Don't know exactly where you are, but it's a little far from NoVa.

    You could try Erikbojerik. I think Wilser is probably busy, if not send me a PM.

    Greg at Metro Guitar in Arlington (or is it Alexandria?) does great work. His shop is off of 23rd St, about 10 blocks east of 1 (Jefferson Davis Hwy).
