has relocated to Charlotte, NC!
Dedicated to making your
instrument the best it can be!
I customized the two Flying V acoustics Michael is currently using by lowering the action and installing Fishman preamps, as well as setting-up his signature Dean electrics. It was an honor. As I have been a fan since U-F-O's 1974 Phenomenon album. Plus I'm pleased to say Michael is in top form and playing better than he ever has.
Hello. As some of you already know, I relocated from Tampa, FL where I was Artist Relations, Head of Quality Control and the Set-Up Dept. for DEAN and LUNA GUITARS (5 1/2 yrs.). More than likely, if you purchased a Dean or Luna instrument in the past 6 years, I did the set- up.
Over the course of 5 1/2 years with Dean, I've done over 75,000 instrument set-ups. I needed a break from pointy guitars.
I am now am in Orangevale, CA and founded "GUITAR WORX".
Every guitar is different. I take everything into consideration: string guage, tuning, playing style, etc. Everything factors in, and I apply it so it is perfect for you.
I work on electrics, acoustics, basses, banjos and mandolins. I also electrify acoustic instruments.
To the guys who have already used my services ... Thank You! It was a pleasure meeting you and working on your instruments. I'm now located near Greenback Lane and Fair Oaks Blvd. in Orangevale.
