Thread: ISO Mandolin Luthier

    Default ISO Mandolin Luthier

    Hello!

    I just recently purchased an oval hole Eastman and was looking for a setup. I've tried taking my previous mandolin to get a setup done but it was of poor quality and my intonation was set poorly as well (I had to adjust it myself). As of right now my bridge is low with the saddle action set as high as possible and still getting buzzing. It's a new mandolin and I just want to find Luthiers that I may potentially send it to and get everything setup so it's in good playing condition.

    Thank you

    Might help folks if we knew where you were located, unless you intend to ship it somewhere.

    All excellent recommendations. Canít go wrong with any of those mentioned. James Condino in Asheville is also a regular here of excellent reputation.
