    I'm looking for a highly recommended Fender Jazz Repair Guy located in New Jersey. I'm looking to have complete total setup, the nut replaced and minor work done to the saddles. Has anyone used or heard of David Hirsch in Whippany? Any other recommendations?

    All your help is appreciated in advance.

    Paul Unkert, down in Toms River. The only guy I'd trust my instruments with. Very reasonable pricing, too.

    Recommended 1,000,000% :cool:

    I do my own work on my bass guitars except for fretwork, but I can't have enough people recommend Paul Unkert.

    I do my own stuff as well as work on other's stuff.
    set ups, neck adjustments, pickup replacement/electronics, hardware replacement. I just don't do frets or refinishing..
    I would go with Paul, he's got a great reputation.

    Phil Petillo, Petillo Guitars, Herbert Ave., Ocean Township. To me, he is the best that there is. I am a very satisfied customer 25+ years.
