Default Luthier in Kansas City area?

Could someone recommend a good luthier in the Kansas City area please? I recently acquired a 20 year old Taylor. It is pristine and sounds beautiful but the action is a little higher than I'm used to. I'd like to get a good set up on it but don't personally know anyone in the Kansas City area.
Thanks.

Try Mass Street Music in Lawrence Kansas.

Thanks. Mass Street might be my best bet. I don't know who's doing their work nowadays. I'm about an hour on the other side of Kansas City from Lawrence so I thought someone might know a good luthier in the Kansas City metro area.

Do you know if yours has a "NT" Bolt-On Neck ?

- This will make a big difference on how the neck angle/playing action would be adjusted.

No this one is pre-NT neck.
