Re: String serving
If the string latch is contacting the string material itself, not a good idea to shoot it.
Depends on the shop for the fix. If they have a new string, that can be swapped out in minutes. Reserving takes a bit longer to do it correctly.
Make sure to re-zero after the work is done. Also mark your brace height on the rail and point that out to the technician to ensure it returns to you as you gave it to them.
