Recommendations for Gypsy Guitar Techs in SF Bay Area?

Hi all,
I need my gypsy jazz guitar setup and a pick guard installed. Could someone please offer recommendations in the area for trusted guitar techs that could do the work? I live in Walnut Creek and work around Palo Alto. Gryphon is pretty close.
Any others?
Much Appreciated!
Feel free email me offline as well.

    He's not a tech, he's a Selmer style builder...but he is located in the SF Bay area... Peter Zwinakis. I really have no idea how to get a hold of him, though.

    Peter Zwinakis is living in Santa Cruz and when I last met with him, he told me that he was giving up on Selmer Guitars due to the small market for them. I doubt that he would do tech work on your guitar.

    Paul Hostetter is the man to see. He is in Bonny Doon. I either do my own work or take it to Paul.

    John Melo in kensington did set up work for my alta mira. You will have to tell him exactly what you want, but he should be able to do it.

    Thanks everyone for the info!
    @richter4208. Yes, I had found that page and know all those repair guys but don't have any evidence they "get" gj guitars.
