I'd appreciate recommendations for repairs to acoustic guitars in Toronto. I'd rather not got to 12th Fret or Ring, because of cost and wait time. Who else can do a decent job fixing a lifting bridge and replacing the saddle from an adjustable bridge (for a Gibson J50) to a fixed one with a bone saddle? Anyone had experience at Capsule with acoustics? Thanks.

There is a guy at Encore Music who is supposed to be quite good. Haven't heard anything good or bad about the Capsule repair dept.

my friend dropped his upright bass, put a hole in it, and it cost $700 to fix it.

The only store in Toronto that I have acoustic repair experience with is the 12th Fret. Yes it may have taken a few weeks, but I don't want someone rushing through a repair or setup. They bend over backwards to make things right there.

Uncool feelings of being used. That's what I now associate with Tundra. Good work there. This is a great lesson in how not to use community forums for self promotion.

Back to the topic - for repairs, no one tops Zak Hanna at Superfuzz Audio—Pro Guitar & Amp Repair in the heart of Toronto for me. Brad at capsule music also does excellent work.

Thanks for pointing that out. Pretty scuzzy reason for joesmith joining GC.
