    Default L/F recommendation: mandolin set-up & repair in So. Calif.

    Can anyone provide a recommendation for a good mandolin repair person for set-up & adjustment? I'm in Southern California in the Pasadena area.

    Thanks all.

    Bit of a hike, but Carruthers Guitars does work for many pros. Shop’s in Camerillo.
