Default Can Someone Recommend Good Guitar Techs on Long Island, NY?

Hi Everyone. I'm looking to bring my Gibson Les Paul to a good guitar tech to hopefully fix the issue of it not staying in tune... Does anyone know of any good guitar techs on Long Island, NY? Thanks!

You may have to network a bit. Find some local small music shops. They usually know who the better setup guys are.

if you have a teacher, or know any players, I'd ask them too. someone will probably have a contact to pass on.

Other than John Monteleone or Chris Mirabella (who can afford to be very selective when it comes to which repairs they'll take on), TMK these guys are as good as it gets in L.I.:

Guitar and Amp Repair
Ronconcoma, Long Island

Eric is an old school tech. Itís worth the trip even if you are an hour or so west of there.
