    Hola,

    I'm looking for recommendations of trusted luthiers and decent service providers who can set up some instruments I have.
    UK based and North West preferably, but I am willing to do a bit of traveling if required.
    E.G. I've just emailed Bernie Goodfellow to see what their wait times on servicing or repairs are, as I'll be down in Brighton later on in the year. I don't even know if they still do set ups and servicing but I do hope so!

    Any first hand recommendations would be much appreciated, as I want to avoid fly by night hack merchants and I don't have much faith in any of the 'techs' in local music shop chains.
    Nothing they would do would likely be beyond my own skills, and many would possibly damage my instruments and I'd be left with no recourse.

    Hi Woody,

    While I can't recommend any luthier in particular, here is a directory of luthiers in the UK / North West: North West – Welcome to Luthier Directory

    I am not sure if that helps, but maybe call a few and interview them about what they can do ?

    Cheers,
    Hector
