    I bought a new electric guitar online few months back. Im really vexed by the FRET BUZZZ, :hbr: that shes been giving off. It very annoying at times :annoyed:. So im in need to set her up well with a good and reliable Guitar repair guy / Luthier in Bangalore.

    I found this on Net, about two luthiers in bangalore, any reviews!?
    Bobby and Arul
    ( Google "luthier DNA bangalore"; first result; cant post a link here :D )

    Please Help! :)

    Cheers !

    arul is a gifted luthier. keep in mnd that he does extremely technical, high-end work, and the acoustic guitars that he builds are masterpieces that start around 1L+. his training resume is frigging impressive.

    basically, he'll probably do a fantastic job and that comes with a justifiably high price tag. so see if you can afford that kind of work first, or if the guitar is worth it. dunno about bobby. if the guitar is not prone to warping as such, it'll probably be the best setup you'll get in the country.

    correct, but clarification required:

    arul was the luthier's sons name. he always wanted to build a guitar, but as fate would have it, he didn't have enough time to. so the dad does it now.

    Bobby is a good man. His place is quite far from bangalore, sub urbs actually.20 kms around from my place.jayanagar.
    He smiled and said " people come to me from mumbai, pondy and boys from bangalore make a fuzz to come here".

    His place is small but well equipped. Makes custom guitars and Amp too. Branded "EDGE".

    He is a guitar whisperer :p, set my guitar very well. its playability is superb now. yay!:dance:

    The person for guitar mending.
    ps: hes not a big fan of publicity
