While we continue to re-opening, due to Covid19 restrictions we will be
operating on an appointment only basis rather than keeping customer service hours.
Please visit our the contact page for information about making an appointment.

Please be patient with us. Currently we are prioritizing appointments for those customers whose guitars were completed and could not be picked up during the Covid19 Closure. Additionally we will be focusing our efforts on completing the work on instruments in house and will be contacting those customers as their guitars are completed via phone or email to arrange an appointment.

If you are interested in bringing in new work please visit our contact page for
information about being placed on our waiting list.

We have finally posted pictures of the new shop!  Check them out here!
