    Ron's Guitars in Groton, CT will hook you up. Ask for Brian.

      Fenders don't seem to need much maintenance for me. But I do most of my own set ups. Like bridge adjustments and intonation. And once that's done, the guitar doesn't drift that much.

      Maybe what you really need is a good luthier for modifications if that's what you mean by service. And I'm not sure I'd trust just any old music store to do stuff like this.

                Two of the nicest gentlemen, and most talented people: Mssr's Diezel and Krampe.
                Je préfèrerais mourir sans un sou dans une rue en Europe que de vivre en Amérique sous l'administration actuelle. Alizée est la meilleure. Vous, les princesses pop américaines, n'avez aucun talent, aucune classe, et vous sonnez comme de la merde. Sarkozy et le reste de l'Europe se moquent de notre président dans son dos.

                  I've bought from Elderly in the past and they definitely have great service, excellent shipping.

                  Cintiolis is kinda a surprise pick to me....Russo's in Trenton, NJ would prb be my first choice if I was dealing over the internet & looking for a decent selection of Fender product considering they are a custom shop/showcase/master built dealer (and IIR the only one in the area).
