    I have a custom bass that needs 3 things done -

    1. Three frets, 11-13, need to be reworked. They either need filing or replacement as the notes they produce aren't true.

    2. The exhibition grade cocobolo top plate needs a professional finish to show off the oranges and the reds I paid for in the original board.
    Right now it has a sealer with UV protectant and carnuba wax. It looks far too dull for my taste instead of being lustrous and red.

    3. I paid beaucoup bucks for a Basslines Alnico MM pickup with the Basslines Tone Circuit preamp that is supposed to give one a very "scooped" sound when the player pulls up on the Volume control. I don't think it is wired correctly.

    SO - my question is - Could you all refer me to someone who can handle all these issues ??? I would surely appreciate it. The best guy, locally, is quite good, but all his time these days is taken up by doing inlay for Martins.

    Thanks for any response. The Nazi MIMF is just useless.
