Where can I get grey work done in the Hartford area ?
I don't know about Hartford, but Dave Dick at DString Guitar Repair a few miles north in Sturbridge Mass is a great luthier, banjo player, and a great guy to do business with.
In that area I use Dave "Tex" Orlomoski in Barkhamsted CT (on Rt. 44 west of Hartford). He's been employed for years by Ovation/Guild guitars and is an excellent luthier. As far as I know he does everything except finish work.
Thanks old timer
Cat Fox in Vermont does exceptional work.
Does anybody know of one closer to Hartford?
You could try
... down in Guilford. Not sure if they're still doing repairs, but worth a call (or even a visit, it's a nice shop).
