We have a problem with a Taylor 810-L1 acoustic guitar and are looking for recommendations for where to go (preferably in North East UK, but happy to travel further afield for the right one) to get it sorted.

Problem: There's a buzz when playing the 6th string at certain positions (most prominent from around 7th to 10th fret) - it seems to be from the bridge region rather than the fretboard.

Recently had the action lowered slightly and an under-saddle Fishman Matrix pickup installed. Our favoured technician (the one who has done all our guitar repairs etc - including this installation) is at a loss and cannot track down the cause.

We're not practical enough to set about removing the pickup and adjusting things ourselves, so would be grateful for suggestions/recommendations for a luthier/repairer to set the guitar up and sort this.
