Long Island, NY Guitar Tech, know a good one?

Postby nycibbyryder » Thu Jun 14, 2012 10:35 pm

Hey guys, I'm looking for a good tech to do some work on my guitar for me, it's an Ibanez RG1570L that I got off eBay, needs a setup and I want to install new pickups. It's an HSH config so I'm gonna put a TB6 Duncan Distortion in the bridge and an SH1 '59 in the neck. Probably with a vintage staggered in the middle position. I know Duncan makes lefty single coils. I think I'm going to go to John Bertsche of We Buy Guitars because I heard he's an excellent luthier. Just wanted to check around the lefty community to see if you guys know any good lefty luthiers. Thanks in advance. Also if anyone knows what value tone pot I should use for this setup, and where i can get a lefty version of it, that would be great.

Don't know my way around the big apple at all. I'm a Baltimore guy.

A good place to start that isn't just a shop trying to get your money might be a good recording studio.
