Can anyone recommend a good guitar tech who has experience working with Rickenbacker 12 string guitars in northern New Jersey (I'm in Morris County)?

I've heard great things about them but am hoping for something shorter than a 4 hour round trip drive.

Four hour round trip? That's just two hours in your car one way. Set yourself up with some good tunes, put your Ric in the car, and just drive the two hours. What you are driving to - Pick Of The Ricks - would be well worth that two hour drive. Chris at Pick Of The Ricks is as good as it gets. Great guy. Will do everything right. Cares about you and your guitar.

Tony Marchatelli of Majestic Guitars in Caldwell knows Ricks. Highly recommended.

I ended up taking my 12 string to Acquire Guitars in Butler, NJ and he did an excellent job with it.

What did he charge you to set up your Rick?

In my opinion, he's overpriced. He wanted $100 to set up a Les Paul, which I think is ridiculous.

Especially considering it's so easy to do yourself. It can be done in the time it takes to hop in the car, drive somewhere and back.
