Does anybody know of and recommend any guitar repairer/luthier in Dunedin? Let me know who the go to person is in Dunedin. If only Mr Glyn was here in Dunedin my problems would be solved.
Thanks :)

Steve Barkman is my go-to guy. His workshop is in Broad Bay so a little out of town. I can find his number if you want it. There is a another guy who works out of downstairs in the Dunedin Rockshop. I've never used him, but friends who have had some work done by him have been happy. Just gonto the Rockshop if you want to usee him

Thanks for the info. i have looked up Steve Barkman and he does seem like he would be a great person to go to for repair work. However, it is quite a long walk trying to get to Broad Bay area where Steve lives, when you dont have a car. Do you know of anybody closer to Dunedin Central that might be worth while checking out? Maybe i will go to Rockshop and find out who this person is that does their guitar repair work.
Thanks :)

Give Steve a call - he may do pick ups from somewhere in town

I've had Steve Barkman look at a couple basses, was happy with the result. I also had the Rockshop basement guy look at a guitar and wasn't too impressed with what he did.
