    Default Looking for a repair person, north Jersey, NYC

    A friend of mine contacted me, looking for a recommendation for a luthier that can repair a serious top crack on a teens Gibson mandolin. From the look of the picture they sent, there's probably some top collapse too.
    Any recommendations? Thanks!

    Hi John,

    Paul Unkert in Toms River NJ does great work, is reasonably priced, and is an altogether nice guy. Have a look here http://www.theoriginalguitarguy.com/ . As he recommends on his site, call rather than email because he doesn't check his email very often.

    Best wishes,

    Bob

    Ian Davlin of Lark Street Music in Teaneck has done exquisite work on several of my instruments. I recommend him highly.
    And Lark Street has many wonderful old and new instruments.
