    Hey guys, sorry I haven't been very active on here anymore!

    I wanted to ask for luthier recommendations preferable in Florida near the Orlando/Miami and Tampa areas but I'm willing to ship if you guys think it is worth it.

    I need a refret on one guitar and my JEM needs some TLC since it is so beat up and worn from me and the previous owner. I am also thinking about getting a whole neck replacement for my JEM (been thinking about it for years). Also, I have an RG body with no neck so I'd like a new neck for that as well.

    Opinions on where to go?

    If you want the best, go with Larry Lashbrook down in Ft. Lauderdale, if he's still around. Prices can be a little high, but he's the real deal.

    Thanks for the replies, I’ll get in contact with them! I actually think a friend worked with Del Isola and I just totally forgot!

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but didn't Del Isola vanish with a bunch of peoples money a few years ago?

    As far as reputable techs go, I'd go to Granville Guitars in St Petersburg.
