Exclamation Does any one Know any Good Luthors in the UK

I need a very good luther (quit urgently) who could do a compleat re-fret on a Jem77BFP and clean the maple neck at the same time. They need to be in the west midlandsand UK; near telford or shrewsbury would be ideal.

Any ideas are good.

Thanks

Barrie at Machinehead every time!!!

They may be based in Hitchin (Hertfordshire) but will pick up your guitar and deliver it back for a small fee (I think it cost me a tenner). All of his work is absolutely impeccable! Apparrently he used to work in forensics so his workshop is like something out of CSI

Good stuff! Machinehead is brilliant! I took my Jem 7PBK and 777SK there for some work, one was a fret dress.
