need Tak EF360SC repairs near Albany, NY

Hey there. My beloved, single owner 1986 Takamine EF360SC need some work, and while I feel comfortable messing around with a $100 Epi, this is way to expensive and precious for me to screw up. (Yup, same model as the one Jerry used to play). I'm nervous as I had work years ago done (simple neck truss tweek). What I got instead was a replaced nut (ugly too), wrong gauge strings and a replaced bridge plastic thingy that wasn't done right (if you know Tak piezo pickups, this is a big no-no). And I got to pay $225 for that experience, thank you very much.

That said, I'm looking for a good, no, great repair tech or luthier in the grater Albany, NY region (or Woodstock as that is close to me). The kinder the better. Thanks in advance!

Just a suggestion that an Ovation dealer, or former one, might have access to legit Tak parts. Or any KMC affiliated brand dealer.

Thanks. But the last repair was done by a shop that was Takamine Authorized Service. So I'm hoping to find a good personal reference of somebody who knows what to do right.
