    Default Setup Workshop?

    Iím looking for a workshop on setting up mandolins. How to analyze the source of a buzz. How to level and dress frets. How to fine tune a nut or bridge. Etc. I have studied Rob Meldromís wonderful ebook and followed his instructions as best I can. Iím not satisfied with my work. Iíd like to watch the someone do these things and ask questions. Do workshops like this exist, on line or in person?

    If you find one please inform me since we are both located in the Burgh or for me in the burbs. My wife and I RV extensively and will be leaving mid May for our NY camp and travel while seeing little of home until the end of October. This would be a very helpful workshop but for me would require hands on learning.
    T Y for this post and I will be standing by.

    Check out Rosa String Workshop on youtube. He has done many videos of setting up various mandolins.
