Another great tech in N. Ireland is Peter Griffin - thoroughly recommended. Pete's telephone number is 028 9265 2617.

Cheers

Seconded.  Pete has done a set up on every one of my guitars and most recently he made and fitted a bone nut to my les paul traditional.  Very friendly guy and meticulous in his work.

Any another.

Just got my PRS back that had lost its sustain on one note - plays perfectly after a fret dress, and set-up.  I also got him to make and fit bone a nut and bridge to my avalone whilst also lowering the action.  Great price too.  My last PRS fret dress cost more for the one guitar that Pete charged me for both jobs.
