I can't give you the name of a good tech but I have a couple of questions for you.Did the level and crown the frets before the setup?Did they replace the saddle?If so what material did they us?

hi back to this guitar again. aggravated!! yes my tech guy dressed the frets ,the saddle is new because i had a different pup installed and he had to take out the UST. the neck is straight ! it even sounds terrible! i can't play it. can you guys tell me what size allen key i need to adjust the truss rod? maybe the action is just too low.

You need a special Larrivee tool.
You can buy the tool direct from their shop.
Go to their website to find their shop.
