Reno Guitar Repair
I started doing instrument repair at the age of 16. It began with my own instruments and quickly expanded to my friends, band mates, and many others. I read many books on guitar construction and repair (Irving Sloane, Hideo Kamimoto, Tom Wheeler, etc) and was soon working for the local music stores. I did repair work on violins, violas, cellos, double-bass, mandolins, banjos and guitars. I also did custom wiring on electric guitars and basses. For a few years I worked as a full-time repairman for one store, and then worked on Saturdays at another music store.
I built my first acoustic guitar at a private Luthier class, and attended the Galloup School of Lutherie for more training. I became a member of the Guild of American Luthiers and taught acoustic guitar building classes locally. I began building custom electric guitars in the 1980’s and started my own independent repair business.
I service and repair a variety of string instruments for various school districts, music stores, orchestras, symphonies, local bands and individual clients. I have many customers in the Reno area, and from Fallon, Susanville, Gardnerville, Lake Tahoe and Sacramento areas. I also have various customers in California, Colorado, Washington, Oregon and even Hawaii who rely exclusively on my services for the proper care of their instruments.
I offer full service and repair for string instruments. Everything from periodic setups to full restoration of antique instruments or the rebuilding of a treasured family heirloom. From students to professionals, I will get your instruments to play and sound their best. Please see my contact and testimonials pages for further information.
