As a young man, I got sick of paying good money for setups and adjustments; ultimately dissatisfied with the work I paid for.  In 1999, I began absorbing all I could in my quest to learn the craft of guitar setup and minor repairs.  I gained confidence and aptitude for fretted instrument repair over the years by performing the work on my student’s instruments and my own.  I am pleased to say that I can fix many common pesky playability issues and have the know-how to set up virtually any guitar to play better for you.
