Classical Guitar Luthier
Recently my father in law passed away and he was a very accomplished musician. He even worked as an arranger for motown back in its heyday. When I passed he had a large number of instruments. Most have been sold but we kept about 6 guitars a banjo and some odds and ends.
3 of the guitars are higher end classical. There is a Ricardo Sanchis, a Paul Jacobson and a Jose Rameriz (this one is a prize, built in 1968 and in excellent condition).
My question is I want to have these evaluated and have any maintenance done on them that's required. I would also like to have them appraised for insurance purposes. Not really planning on selling them.
Can anyone recommend a good luthier in the Lexington, KY area? Or someplace within a few hours drive? Nashville, Cincinnati, Lousiville, Indianapolis, etc.
Looking for someone with classical experience. I don't want to let any Joe Schmo touch these things!
