Remedial work on badly set-up lutes

Standards of lute making are generally high nowadays, but there are still badly set-up lutes in circulation which with a little work can be greatly improved. Many luthiers are prepared to adjust pegs, bridge, fretnut etc. to improve incorrectly set-up lutes; those who have specifically said they are happy to do this work are noted below.
