Luthiers working in bowlbacks in the Washington, D.C. area
Long ago, I asked about intonation issues with my bowlback (everything plays progressively sharper up the neck). Having tried what I can that is non-invasive, I still can't fix the issue. Is there anyone in the D.C. area who works with these little guys who could get it shipshape?
