About Us

With as many guitars we see each month, there are many aspects of repair that we do that isn’t listed, which is the ability to create jigs, tools, or alternate solutions for solving problems with instruments that reflect experience of building coupled with the spirit of invention. There are a handful of tools not yet listed or photographed on this site, due to them not being patented as of yet.

From Floyd Rose tremolos to banjo mandolins over 125 years old and anywhere in between, if your instrument has frets and needs some help with playability, tone, intonation, or aesthetics, please consider dropping us a line.  Our goal is to make people happy one guitar at a time.

Although I started building acoustics and electrics in high school, I found my place with setups of high-end classical guitars with an emphasis on intonation as I went to college for classical guitar performance, first at Florida Southern College then at Florida State University where I received a master’s degree from renowned pedagogue, Bruce Holzman. I then continued to expand as a tech, repairman, player, and teacher in Atlanta for almost 10 years, making the rounds to a handful of stores each week, repairing anything that had frets on it. I’ve worked on hundreds of guitars at this time for various stores and recording artists in the pop/rock field, in addition to many internationally famous classical guitarists. Now that number is well into the thousands. My work is precise and clean.

Recent guitars that have been in my shop include many American and Japanese Fenders, Taylor and Martin acoustics, several Gibson Les Pauls and SG’s, in addition to concert classical guitars by Thomas Humphrey, Steven Connor, Raphael Granados, David Rubio, Manuel Rodriguez, and Matthias Dammann. Many UT graduate students bring their guitars to me in addition to their professor, Adam Holzman.
