Mike this is not slanted as anything towards you at all and if a luthier told me he d get it done in the same day id probably do the same as you because id assume he wasnt slighting anyone else and might have been having a lull in his day. But phil s rep for not getting others work done is rampant. This is totally on phil not you.Whoa....I found Phil in a guitar repair ad. I took one guitar to him in 2007 and another in 2010. He told me that I would need to leave the guitar for the day - it was no picnic figuring out what to do in Baltimore for several hours, and I really didn't want to leave the guitar(s).
Don't take insult from my posting, and certainly don't try to allign my post with what is currently taking place.
I'm nobody. I was, and still am, a person who lives an hour and half outside of Baltimore. Phil was willing to work on my guitar, but demanded I not leave it with him.
I'm simply sharing my story - nothing more, nothing less.
