Are there any guitar stores that offer the same type of service with detailed setups like TheUkuleleSite? Thanks

Gryphon strings has a highly reputed full service workshop inhouse and can accommodate any requests.

You might give TheUkuleleSite a call about Pono guitars and other options that they may offer.

Elderly Instruments, in Michigan, comes to mind.

Yeah I'll second that. They did a great job on my guilele setup after I asked for a lower than normal action setup. I like closer to 2.5mm instead of over 3mm which was standard on this model. And this was on a $140 guitar. I offered to pay extra for the extra service but they wouldn't take it, just did it.

I've just begun to venture into guitars so have not transacted with either (yet) but have heard good things.

These guys are more or less local for me - nice shop, they do lots of luthier work in a building right across the street. I bought my Waterloo WL-S there - they carry some high end brands, and Martin, Eastman, Guild...I've even seen some Collings Ukes there as well.

They do some video demonstrations, too - this is the actual Waterloo I purchased from them, being played by one of their salesmen.

Congratulations on the new Waterloo. I have played that model, it is wonderful and I am sure you will really enjoy it. Love the old time styling too, very cool:cool:

Thanks ... but I bought it last August ;)

It's an amazing guitar, very lightly built and responsive. With the cherry b&s, spruce top and ladder bracing it has a nice vintage tone that's well suited to my fingerpicking style.

I have been quite happy with the service at Sweetwater. They are very responsive, and even emailed me a zip file of professional photos of the guitar I just bought from them.
