A while agoI bought, privately, a slightly battered strat on the basis that it sounded absolutely fantastic and nails the "little wing" / "Castles made of sand" tone. Truth is the original nut grooves are worn deep, the frets quite worn too, in places and really affecting its playability above 8th fret. It needs a new nut and a professional set up; possibly even a re fret. I am nervous about having work done, but it is unavoidable. I live in the west midlands, UK, and wonder if any of you can recommend a highly skilled luthier. I don't mind paying a premium price if it becomes the guitar it ought to be. Would be very grateful for any ideas.
