    Many years ago i took my bass to a luthier in Vancouver BC, and he put a new fingerboard on my bass. He was highly recommended by Chuck Israels. This guy did great work, and i want to use him again. I think his name was Brian?
    I can't find him on the net, and don't know how to get a hold of him.
    If someone could help me, that would be great.

    The one that pops into mind is Gerard Ivan Samija. He used to post here once in awhile.

    I was laying in bed and remembered his name: Brian Hoover.
    Did a web search, and found someone else that raved about his work.

  4. Yes, Brian Hoover is among the great Canadian luthiers, highly recommendable. Also, you can go to James Hamm in that neck of Canada, too.
