There are several places in Portland you can take your musical instruments to. Why do I drive the twenty some miles to Barretts shop instead of 8 miles to the bigger shops? Because there aren't too many guys that have 30 years of experience with acoustic guitars.
I own a custom shop Martin guitar that I've had about five years. It's tone had gone a bit sour so I took it to Barrett thinking it might need to have a couple of frets replaced. Barrett found multiple problems that were not obvious but needed attention. I needed it repaired quickly and I let him know that. Four days later I picked it up and went straight to rehearsal. It was like brand new, no more tuning problems, it plays as well as my 335 and the tone is absolutely gorgeous. I was considering a Taylor 916 before I took it in, not anymore though, just saved myself $3600.00.
