I recently acquired a 30's Favilla uke that needs a neck set. Who would be a good, reasonably priced luthier who could do the work? Thanks!

I'm in Southeast Missouri but I'm willing to ship the uke to get it worked on.

Jake Wildwood, but he might still be booked up:

Paris Patt in Los Angeles, Patt's Guitar Repair and Curation. He's very good, not overly expensive, but also booked, wait is 2-3 weeks. He worked for 10 years in the repair shop at McCabe's (very well known 60 year old store and venue).


This is Michael Kohan in Los Angeles, Beverly West near the Beverly Center

+1 Jake Wildwood. I have had 2 of my ukes benefit from his attention.
You can read through his blog to see a large number of his projects.
