Looking for an experienced luthier with proper training to handle your precious instrument? I have 3 years experience as a luthier, with a year of training under 4 luthiers (one of them ran the repair department at fender in california). Some of the services that I offer are
- electric, acoustic and bass guitar setups & string changes - nut and saddle replacement (bone or corium) - cracked or pulled bridges - separated braces - warped or "bellied" acoustic guitar tops - fingerboard replacement - high end fret dresses and refrets (bound fingerboard, maple fingerboard, etc...) - small crack repair - finish touchup - refinishing instruments - neck resets All quotes are subject to the severity of the damage and the level of repair necessary. My bench rates are less than those of the musical retail outlets because my overhead is significantly less without a storefront or showroom. Therefore, I can offer work at a competitive price, with assurance of quality. I also studied the craft of making musical instruments, having made electric, acoustic and archtop guitars as an apprentice, and on my own. If you'd like to discuss a repair you have, a wild idea for a guitar that's been brewing in your head, or simply to talk about instruments of yore, don't hesitate to contact me.
