Set-up and Repair in Phila. area

  1. Does anyone know of any good set-up and repair folks in the Phila. area? I would like to find someone experienced, who really knows what they are doing and can do more than just basic set-ups.

    Eventually I may need refinishing and electronic work done, but even for set-ups I would like to find a real professional who does more than the basic truss rod tweak. I would prefer NOT to go to Sam Ash or any other similar store unless there was a specific person there. There used to be some luthiers around here, but it seems like it has all dried up.

    If need be, I would be willing to travel to NJ, areas west of Phila., and even NYC if I need to, but if possible would prefer to find somone more local. In any case, I currently don't have the names of any folk in the tri-state area so the more names, knowledge and shared experiences of good repairmen I can get the better!

    Thanks for any help!
