Bit late to the party, but I always use Peter at GTS, and have done for about 10 years now.  Have never been anything but delighted with Peter's work on my basses.  He's not cheap, but only 20 mins from home for me, and I've come to the conclusion that you get what you pay for.  I factor in the cost of one of his pro-setups whenever I buy a bass.

Exactly this ^ I too consider it part of the initial cost of any instrument I buy.

I have had two nuts (steady) swapped out at GTS, one bass, one classical guitar, superb job. He also explained to me how other ‘luthiers’ do it incorrectly.

 

How did others do it incorrectly, and what was the correct way?

Have you ever seen any of the Ebay auctions from He Who Shall Not Be Named? If not, take a look and decide for yourself which category they fall into.

:D

I am not sure!!! Are you talking about that guy who specialised in buying instruments and butch... I mean upgrading and otherwise modifying them?

 

My question was genuine, 'though. Was there something specific that he does and others generally don't? I tend to do a lot of my own setups and attempt little jobs on my guitars, so I'm always keeping an ear alert for any hints and clues that might help me later on.
