I'm looking for a tech that i could send my guitar away to install the on board effects loop to my Carvin dc-145. I've contacted some local techs even one about an hour away from me, and it seems they always reply back to my emails but once I reply to them about installing the effects loop they stop replying altogether.. my neighbor told me that a guy at a local Samash is a really good tech and does it on the side, I went to his house and showed him my guitar and he was kind of baffled with the whole idea, he said he could probably do it but he sounded really unsure and I'd rather not have my guitar ruined by him... Would anyone know a good tech? I'll most likely need it routed to fit a battery compartment too..
I've heard good things about Mas Hino in NYC. I don't know if that's too far, but maybe he can steer you toward somebody in your area. I've not worked with him directly, but my luthier, Stephen Marchione, recommended him to a bunch of people when he moved from NY to Texas.
Good luck with your axe,
