Dewey Tech: Guitar Buzz/ Need Decent Set-Up Person! (3) Tech: Guitar Buzz/ Need Decent Set-Up Person! 23 May 08

Recently bought A Larrivee D-03R guitar. It Played fine for about a week and then started to buzz after I started playing it regularly. I think it has a fret problem, When the action gets raise it still starts buzzing, there is no back buzz at all when tested with a capo.

The guitar set up people in my town, are really a waste of time. They turn a truss rod or two, and send it back with the same problem every time I take it to them. I need somebody to do a thorough diagnostic on the buzz. but do not trust the competence of the set up people in my hometown.

Any professional recommendations where I can take this guitar to to get set-up, and/or repaired accurate and once and for all? I am playing 5-string banjo with my new band at about 15 bluegrass festivals the Midwest States this summer:Minnesta, Wisconsin, Iowa and Nebraska, and IBMA in Nashville, TN in September. I was hoping that I could take it to a professional repairman at one point during these venues.

Any recommendations where I might take it? Also is it possible to send it direct to Larrivee for repairs. I've heared rumors this model has had production problems and mainly models were known to have had uneven frets.

Thanks for any info. I live in the North where it is almost impossible to buy a decently set up guitar for a fair price, and I really don't have the money for an expensive new one.
