I would like to get my 2005 Les Paul Standard refretted with stainless steel jumbos and a new bone nut. Looking for someone in the Austin, TX area that can do the job right. Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated.
Yes. He did a SS refret and a nut new bone for me. He's great. Frets are perfect.Pete Skermetta
Last I asked him, he wouldn't use SS frets. But that was at least 5 years ago.If Ed Reynolds is still in Austin, he would be my #1, #2, #3 and #4 go-to. A real pro's pro. Strong history on his own, w/Collings (as a consultant to their electric guitar program), friends w/Michael Stevens, guitar guru to cats like David Grissom, EJ, Lance K., and others. Ed is a total and comprehensive guitar electronics wizard and a guru on all things guitar-related. I used to bring my '57 LP Junior to Ed's shop back around 1980 when he was on the North Side of Chicago.
Ed is a member here, though rarely posts. Here is an old thread that Ed Participated in:
It was resurrected in 2016; Ed gives his contact information in Post #19. If he is still in Austin, find him and go to him. No better or more knowledgeable luthier/tech on the planet.
