I am a certified guitar technician and luthier with 25+ years of experience. I was formally educated at Vermont Instrument School of Lutherie in instrument repair and restoration. I work on acoustic, classical, electric, 6 string, 12 string, mandolins, ukuleles, banjos, and bass guitars. I’ve repaired many makes including Martin, Gibson, Gretsch, Larson Brothers (Maurer, Stahl), Guild, McAlister, Fender, Taylor, Lowden, Santa Cruz, Sadowsky, Collings, Rockbridge and Hofner.
I offer repairs ranging from a custom set up to neck resets, full fret jobs, and all electronic work, completing each job to the player’s unique specs. My clients receive personal attention to discuss playing styles, musical tastes, and expectations. I also offer guitar restoration (or resurrection), bringing value, aesthetics, and playability back to vintage guitars. I’ve had the opportunity to work on several prewar instruments, and I know the importance of keeping repairs period correct and properly done to retain the value of the instrument.
