  Guitars have always been a part of my life and I've been in the music business for over 40 years, building, repairing and guitars since 1973. I opened my Santa Cruz shop to serve the music community with a passion and dedication to my craft. I treat all customers and instruments with equal respect and your satisfaction is always guaranteed.

I specialize in fretwork, wiring, customizing and expert set-ups....especially on those "problem" Strats with vintage style tremolo. I also repair pickups and do custom rewinding. I'm mostly known for my work with electric guitars, but I also work on acoustics as well as most other wooden stringed instruments.

In my career I've had the good fortune to work with some world famous luthiers and have also done "tech" work with some very well known artists. Please feel free to contact me with any questions or comments. Thanks for visiting my website and I'm looking forward to serving you. Come by and let me earn your business.

The Guitar Shop is growing. I recently purchased a music store located at 926 Soquel Ave. Santa Cruz, Ca. 95062. Now as well as professional guitar tech services, we offer a line of acoustic, electric, bass, ukes,etc. We also have a selection of straps, effects, parts, pick ups and most popular strings. Please stop by the new store for a visit. It's a very cool space with plenty of mojo. Hope to see you all soon.
