Wasn't sure which forum to put this in so I put it here. Anyone in Toronto? Was just wondering if there is what shops do you recommend taking a guitar into for some basic repairs? I took my flying v into Allegro music to fix an electronics issue I have been having, and they called back after 2 weeks saying there was no problem with the electronics that they could find, but when I got it back, the problem was still there.
The problem first arose after getting it back from Long & McQuade, so I'd like to avoid them, plus I ahd to wait a month for my guitar to be ready there.

Anyone in Toronto know a good place that isn't too expensive, with a decent turn around time (in other words, not 12th fret) ?

There it's guitar techs listed on kijiji from time to time in the gta. One i saw a few days ago said he did amps as well so electronics shouldn't be an issue. Anything I've ever needed done i did myself so i really have no idea who is good and who isn't. Sorry i can't help you more.

I am in Burlington and looking for a good guitar tech. I know this message was posted 8 years ago but thought I would ask
Sorry to say that this guy had heart issues come up and he's no longer in the game as far as i know. I heard Gear Music in Oakville does nice work, but i have no 1st hand experience with them.
