Luthier required in the south East of England
« on: June 01, 2010, 04:23:36 PM »
Fellas, I'm tearing my hair out here. I need a luthier who can fix a couple of intonations issues, and clean up or replace a pick guard on previously restored mid-1930's L-00 - not much to ask really! Just don't trust anyone I've checked out so far. Too many enthusiasts - not enough pros anymore.... Any suggestions gratefully received.

Slim (getting frustrated) Blighty.

BTW - I'm in the Hertfordshire, Bucks area for those of you on the same side of the pond ;)

Does Dave King still take on this sort of work?  Seems an obvious choice in that general neck of the woods.

I'd second that.  Plus there's Dave's erstwhile colleague Celine at Luthier's Corner in Denmark Street.  http://www.luthierscorner.co.uk/Luthiers_Corner/Luthiers_Corner_Denmark_Street_London_Guitar_Stringed_Instrument_Repair_Restoration_Celine_Camerlynck.html

Was talking to Dave King a couple of weekends back at a Guitar Show in Haydock Racecourse near St.Helens, Lancashire.  He has a new workshop and is definitely still both repairing instruments and making new ones as well as selling Nationals.

I'd give him a call and talk it over with him.
