    The Brazilian rosewood bridge on my (most 'sentimentally prized') acoustic just cracked down the middle...

    I was wondering if anyone had any recommendations for someone in Chicago that does good repair work?

    [PMs also welcome.]

    Thanks.

    Geoff Benge is also fantastic. I always have him do my set-up work and he even managed to repair a BYOC delay kit which I over-soldered...

    www.geoffbengesguitarshop.com

    +1 for Ian's Specimen shop, too.
