From Our Website

I am a musician. I've been playing guitar for 50+ years and have a consuming passion to play, repair, restore and build guitars. I accommodate stringed instrument musicians and don't mind a customer who considers himself "picky." I tend to be a perfectionist and like my instruments set up a particular way - and so do you! With more than 20 years of guitar and stringed instrument repair and building experience, I am skilled in every phase of guitar and stringed instrument care. My passion and specialty is vintage instrument restoration and re-finishing.
