With new customers, it’s important that I get to know you and your guitar. Your ability, your individual style and goals as a player, are important parts in determining what’s best for you and ultimately for your guitar.

A complimentary assessment of your instrument is always provided, and I’ll make recommendations that will improve your guitar’s playability. You’ll receive an outline in writing and then we can decide together on the best course of action.

Understand that depending on your instrument’s age, condition, value, quality and stability of previous repairs, prices may vary from what is listed. In some instances, once a repair has begun, other problems not immediately evident can surface.  But don’t worry, no work will be done without your consent.
