    Mark, the guy who does the repairs for Guitar Center Grand Rapids is actually pretty good. Don't get scared off by the fact that he does business with GC. If he can't do it, he'll tell you who can.

    Pete Moreno's Guitar Clinic in Kalamazoo Area. He's no longer on Stadium drive, BTW, but I think the number is the same.

    Old Gibson guy from back in the day. Last I knew (about a year ago) was working at Heritage Guitars part time and still running his own shop. He charges about $1/Minute and gets stuff done in no time flat. I taken all kinds of stuff for a setup and it's only been $80 once, the rest of the time it was like $40.

    He's a good guy to boot.

    Huge gasp! You can't find eight zillion stellar techs in Kalamazoo? Gasp I say!

    I used to live in Kzoo in the seventies, a college chum ended up being the big cheese at Gib sometime later. The place used to be crawling with more folklore and talent than a Harvard faculty meeting.

    Y'know that might just be a bigger crime than moving Gibson in the first place.
