    After years on an electric and the last few on a fretless, I purchased a used upright with the idea of learning it. This particular instrument has steel strings and a high action. I live in the Fort Myers, FL area and would like to know of anyone in this area who can work on this bass. Thanks in advance.

    I live in Fort Myers, and have not been able to find anyone here. I take my basses to Tampa Violin Shop. Great bass luthier named Francesco.

    Would rather find someone here on the west coast than 2.5 hours away. Thanks again. I believe there are a few shops in Sarasota, which is much closer.

    Tampa Violin Shop has a store in Sarasota. Last time I used them, I took my basses to the Tampa location, but picked it up from the Sarasota store.

    I found someone in North Fort Myers who will pick up the bass. I will pass on his name when he's done with the work.
