View Full Version : South Carolina Set up
Does anybody know of anyone that will do me right on a setup in South Carolina?
Try Billy Chapman (Chapman Stringed Instruments) in Columbia. I think he has a web site something like www.chapmanstringedinstruments.com He makes some amazing semi-hollow electric mandos, worth checking out while you're there.
If your close to Ashville N.C. Danny bishop is great! His web site is Bishopviolins.com. He also has some killer mandolins at his plave right now.
Randy Wood , Savanah?: Ronnie Griffin, Waycross, GA
Olin Davis, maker of Rattlesnake mandolins is just outside of Columbia, SC.
Darryl, didn't know you were so close by! #Central NC here, about 30 miles south of Greensboro.
I'm down in Myrtle Beach, so I guess Columbia sounds the closest.
Don't mean to hijack your thread. straight-a where are you located? I am near Sanford. We have to be close.
You might check with Jennings Chestnut in Conway--since he builds mandolins, I guess he does setup work too. The other thing you might check is to call at Carolina Opry and ask for for Jimmy Edmonds. He does some repair work, and if doesn't want to do the set up, he will know someone who does since they have to keep all those instruments at the Opry in good shape.
Think about coming to RenoFest in Hartsville SC the 4th weekend in March. Luthiers Wayne Henderson and Gerald Anderson will be there--they won't be doing any set up work, but they may have something cool to show off!
Yes..Jennings is right there....Randy is a pretty good drive to Sav GA
Go to the web site for Blueridge and get Alan Bibiys, number or e-mail him. He is a great guy and an amazing mandolin player. I'm sure he knows someone who does sset up in your area.
I forgot all about chestnut mandolins in conway.
