    I was taking my guitars to a boutique shop in Oakville but sadly the store is no longer there. I really liked the work they did on my guitars but now I am in need of a new Luthier. Anyone have any recommendations?

    Right at this moment setup stuff but I have needed more advanced stuff done in the past. I've just always gone to one guy to get everything done

    Dave Reaume- Dave's World of Fun Stuff on YouTube. I believe he's in Toronto and his work looks really good, and the content is always worth a watch ;D

    So I contacted Dave and he has agreed to do some work for me. I'm getting this bad boy dropped in there next week with the new knobs and thumb splitters in my 2016 traditional. I'm looking forward to it.

    Awesome!

    Hopefully he'll include it in one if his videos?

    Dave is one of my favorite "Youtubers".:thumb:

    Don't forget Freddy G! And Bryan Curry at Music 21 in Bolton does excellent work. He refretted the Northern last year.

    If you need big work done, Freddy G is the man and would be worth the drive!!

    Oh good more content material for Dave! I have watched the guy for years and learnt so much. I hope this one gets a vid.

    I just got a text today and my guitars ready. Geez I dropped it off yesterday that was fast. I am picking it up on Friday. He also told me that it needed a few adjustments and he didn't feel right giving it back to me in it's current state. No mention on a video though.

    Cool that you found a tech. But if it just needed an adjustment, it is certainly something you can do with a few tools. :thumb:

    Yeah and i normally do. I was going to fiddle with it after I got back. I told him when i dropped it off not to worry about tweaking it. I thought it was nice of him to go ahead and make the adjustments anyway.

    I just got a text back from Dave about an hour back and he did confirm that he made a video but said he wasn't going to upload it for a while. I'll post it when he uploads it.
