    Can any of the Wisconsin folks recommend someone who could do a good bass set-up and/or repairs in the Madison or Milwaukee area? Thanks.

    In Milwaukee go to Lincoln Music, they are the best in the city. In madison go to Ward Brodt music.
    hope this helps :)

    If you were closer to La Crosse, I'd send you to Dave's Guitar Shop. They do a nice job and worth a visit just to look around. I'm not familiar with the Milwaukee guitar places, but there is definitely no place like it in Madison. Kind of a long drive for a set up though.... Good luck!

    Jim's Guitar Repair on 94th and Greenfield or so is the place to go. It's run by Jim Eanelli, who sets up Phil Collins' guitarist's guitars. Best place to go.

    Jim set up my StingRay beautifully and quickly. And it's Daryl Steurmer who plays guitar for Phil Collins.

    I'm going to put in a plug for Lane's Lutherie in Madison. He does terrific work.
