    Hi guys,

    I live north of NYC, and need a re-fret on my '79 Les Paul Standard. She's a beautiful guitar, with great tone, but the frets have seen better days.

    Can anyone recommend an experienced Luthier in my area? I'd be willing to travel, within reason. NYC is an option, but would rather do North Jersey, Southern CT, or Rockland/Westchester.

    TIA,

    your Hammer

    Give Joe at CT Music in Stamford a call. He's a legend. Only problem is, his backlog is usually a good 3 months, unless you're going on tour.

    Thanks. Fortunately, I'm not a professional, so I can afford to wait.

    Very cool. Upper west side would be a snap, coming off the GWB.
