There are a couple of options. One is Yukon Stubblebine in Somerville. Yukon does a great job on a variety of instruments, he as worked on several of my guitars. Steve Morrill Guitar Repair right near Berklee, but he is very busy. Finally there is Glenn Nichols about 45 minutes outside Boston. Glenn did some restoration work on one of my guitars. I think it really depends on what you need done.

Thomas Knatt in Groton also does repair work. I haven't ever worked with him, but I've heard positive things. If you're looking for an early instrument specialist, maybe contact Von Huene in Brookline. They are primarily a recorder shop, but they may know of local luthiers who specialize in lutes and other stringed instruments. Similarly, the folks at the Boston Early Music Festival might be able to provide info. Paul O'Dette and Stephen Stubbs are the artistic directors, and they are both plucked instrument players.
Remember Anthony Weller, please help. Contact myself or Aaron Green for details.

Yukon had a lute in his shop when I was there recently.
