REPAIR SERVICE

Is the performance of your guitar degrading due to years of normal wear and tear, or did your guitar suffer from a mishap? Perhaps you dropped it or ran over it with your car. Let me take a look at it. A wide range of options exists for the restoration of your favorite guitar. I also perform factory authorized warranty repairs for Fender and Martin guitars.

ACOUSTIC GUITARS & BASS REPAIRS
