    Thats cool, I can do that Paul. The only problem is that I rely on information given to me by other people, who were recommended on this forum. I can go to Yahoo! and search for them in specific areas, but if no one has dealt with them, they could be really bad. So Paul, if you wanna submit info to me, send me a PM and lemme know. Thanks!

    Lays Guitar Shop

    Dan Shinn owns the shop now. He bought it from Virgil Lay in 1982 when Virgil decided to focus on S.I.T. Strings. His brother, Joel, does a lot of finish work in addition to building his own line of custom guitars. Don Fallon does repairs for them as well.

    They've maintained my guitars since the late 70s.

    I do repairs, finishing, etc. New builds are for the others - I've got plenty on my hands with my own guitars!

    He's in San Antonio, but he's originally from Davenport, Iowa. He's by far one of the most respected repairmen in the midwest: Paul Munden. If I weren't such good friends with Dave Johnson, my guitars would be going to Paul without hesitation. But, I don't know if he's still doing it or not.

    I am located in Davenport, Iowa. Right on the Mississippi River, across from Rock Island Illinois. 180 miles southwest of Chicago. I can offer re-fret, binding, routing with two Overarm Pin Routers and three router tables. I do not spray so I am limited to small area cosmetic repairs or natural wood complete finishes. I am also equipped to do fairly complex inlay. At this time I am not doing complete guitars but I am getting there.
    I also do setup on electric or acoustic and for "bolt-ons" I can convert to threaded insert, and built in neck angle adjuster. Email is in my public profile. I am 62 and have been working on guitars since age 17, starting with custom pearl work and on through building. I am a semi-retired lawyer looking to avoid mischief with too much time on my hands(hey, there is a song there, right?) J. E.
