Since I started playing guitar at age 12, I’ve loved the instrument for its  endless flexibility.  What motivates me to this day is working with musicians to continue their process of discovery and self-expression, whether they’re first learning to stretch their fingers across the strings or auditioning vintage tone caps and looking to shave their action down by another 1/64″.

I offer free guitar inspection and evaluation when you stop into the shop. No minimum bench fee. I believe in communicating with my customer first, educating where I’m able, and working together to make the guitar truly speak for the guitarist. Please explore the information on these pages to learn more about my services and approach, and feel free to call or email me any time to let me know what I can do for YOU.
