“ Thank you so much for the repairs you did.  It is fantastic.  It has never played so well  for me before.  You have clearly put a lot of effort in and you are:

A) clearly very knowledgeable and skilled

B) hard working and tenacious in tracking down and fixing problems.

I shall certainly recommend you to all my fellow players!

Thank you ”
