I have an Epiphone Casino that needs some work on the neck, and I have heard good things about Junction Guitars, in terms of repairs.

The work may be as limited as having the nut replaced for a better one, but I suspect that the (fixed) neck might also have to be adjusted in some way (not truss rod).

Thanks for any replies.

If not just take it to the 12th Fret...

I heard the 12th fret doesn't have the same luthier they had built their reputation on.
Thanks.

This is good to know, as I took my guitar to Junction Guitars, and am going to take it back because it still has the problems I took it in for.

When I spoke to Phil on the 'phone about this, he said that "Maybe the humidity is different in your place".

While that can make a difference, I do not think that the lower E string should now be buzzing right up to the 14th. fret or so.

Also, I really do not have the time or money to be carting my guitar back and forth.

Of course, I should have played it properly when I was at Junction

Will update this thread in the next couple of weeks.

You should always accurately measure the distance your strings are off at the 5th and 12th fret. It is easy to fix buzzes by raising the string height. That is not what I usually want. I want the frets that have lifted up or whatever the issue is corrected.

Yes.

I am surprised that such a basic problem was not addressed.

Will keep my fingers crossed.
