Dedicated to making your instrument the best it can be.


I understand that your instrument is an extension of YOU. You know how you want it to play and feel. Not how someone tells you it should. It's your instrument ... your "Baby".
Every guitar is different. I take everything into consideration: string gauge, tuning, playing style, etc. Everything factors in, and I apply it so it is perfect for you.

I do Electrics, Acoustics, Basses, Banjos, Mandolins and Ukuleles. I also electrify acoustic instruments.

Depending upon the guitar, normally no more than 1 hour is needed for neck adjustment, intonation, action set and thorough neck / fret cleaning and polishing. Or possible neck re-set for bolt ons. Even fret leveling and recrowning, if needed. At no additional charge.

$60 per guitar / hour - $75 for guitars with Floyd Rose or similar floating tremolo systems. Sorry, they take a lot more time and fine adjustment. 

Regardless if it's a budget model from Musician's Friend or Guitar Center, I can make it play better.

Also, you will play it and give me your feedback before you leave. I'll then make any adjustments you may request. It has to right for you before you pay me.

Or if you have the time, you can watch me do it. I'll be more than happy to teach you how to do it yourself.

Satisfaction guaranteed. If you're not happy, I don't want your money. Of course, I'm not going to fall for con artists looking for free work. You get the "drift".
