Default Seeking a set--up tech on Oahu in Hawaii

I'm looking for a set-up technician on Oahu. I have a guitar & 3 or 4 ukes that need set-up. My previous set-up person moved away. Of course, I expect to pay for such services.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

For the ukes, I think the folks behind theukulelesite.com are based on Oahu, and they have a full-time setup tech on staff who sets up every single ukulele before they're shipped out. Don't know if he takes outside work or not but he seems reputable. I've ordered a uke from them and it came very well setup.

Oh I saw your post on the UU forum. Oahu has a huge music scene, many of the artists have facebook pages where you can ask. There is also a forum on slack key guitar where I think some of the locals drop in, maybe ask there:

HMS does set-up what they sell, but HMS does not do set-up for instruments purchased elsewhere.
