    There is Pat Diburro in the NH seacoast area. He does good work. He mostly works on acoustics now, but still takes on work on electrics. Nice guy, too. Here's his site: http://www.diburro.com/

    Guitar Doctor in Whitman. Had a friend whose Goldtop snapped. The Guitar Doctor did a great job on the repair. I have also used them before for more minor things.

    You could try Doug Maccormack in manchester new hampshire. He used to work for Daddys junky Music for 30 years as thier head tech. When Daddy's closed all the techs opened thier own shop called The Music Techs. He's done repaire for Aerosmith and a bunch of others I cant remember. www.dougmaccormack.com

    +1 for Stokes he's great. Not the most convenient, he's near Berklee and has bankers hours more or less.

    +1 For Pat he's my got to guy for acoustics but I don't think he works on electrics worth asking though.

    I didn't have a good experience with Peter at Brokenneck. He did a refret on a custom shop fender and it was ugly. I still think of getting it redone by someone else.
    If you don't mind going to Maine, I've heard great things about Steve Grenier at Main Street Music. He has done a bunch of Gibson neck repairs. Their number is 207-376-3376
