Combining my years of working as a woodworker with my passion for music, I'm uniquely qualified to do all kinds of work on your instrument...from set-ups, replacing tuners, restringing, finish work and most repair work.
I know fretted instruments from the inside out. This is an archtop guitar that I built back in 1998. The "Dyna" is made of redwood, black walnut and rosewood.
I've been working on instruments for 30+ years. I've built archtops and electrics, and restored vintage instruments. Below are some photos of a '53 Gibson L4 that I brought back to life a couple years ago. It arrived in very rough shape and bit by bit, I resurrected it. Now, it's one of my favorite guitars.
