I'd figure it's worth a shot to ask here but I recently did a fret level and crown for a customer on his 1993 Classic premium plus and his frets had been very uneven with lots of wear. Not only that it sure looked like whoever worked on the guitar only leveled the frets and were really squared "box" style.

I've recommended a refret and possibly new nut but I don't have the skills or knowledge to do that job nor will I even attempt. Also I don't know of any shop and he's doesn't want to ship or drive very far. We both are located in the Ventura county area just north of Los Angeles.

Last night I did a quick search and came across Carruthers guitars and is only 25 minutes away. Has anyone had any work done by them and was it to satisfactory?

Eric’s guitar shop in van nuys can do a great job of all that. He’s my old teachers go to guy and a total pro.

You can also reach out to my buddy Nick http://www.nicksguitarfix.com/ he’s the old tech from Norms Rare Guitars. He’s been doing this kind of work for a really long time, he’ll take care of ya.

Eric guitar shop is excellent, only good things to say about him. Very serious.
There is also Alex Fink at finkguitar.com who did a fantastic tune up on my guitar.
