Looking for a Luthier

I Have a Daion acoustic Guitar that I bought in 1979 back in England. I am now living near Athens Georgia and am in need of having my faithfull old guitar re fretted and set up to its former glory.
Does anyone know of or can anyone recommend a good luthier who is trustworthy and capable of doing this

Re: Looking for a Luthier

You might call Warrior Guitars. The are located near Chattanooga TN. Even though they build custom electrics and a few acoustics, they might be able to take care of your guitar. I think the fretboard builder is Chris. Here is a link to their site: http://www.warriorinstruments.com/index_guitar.html

Good luck.

There is a man located in Southeast Tennessee named Johnny Rushing. He builds custom guitars these days that sound and feel LIKE BUTTER. Amazing acoustic instruments. He was a former master luthier at Martin Guitars, and he does fantastic work, relatively cheap.

Re: Looking for a Luthier

I'm new here myself, and I hope I don't get in trouble for bringing up a somewhat old thread, but I'd really appreciate anyone being able to recommend a good Tech in the Burlington, Greensboro, Raleigh/Duram NC area that is REALLY good at working on the action of Ibanez electics with the new Edge Zero II tremolo systems. Mine has an annoying persistent buzz from the low E string and I want to make sure I take it to someone that isn't going to make a mess of things.
