Repairs, restorations and custom instruments.
40+ years of experience with vintage restoration, repair and custom builds. My first guitar broke and I had to figure out how to fix it....as a kid in junior high. From there, I became obsessed and sought out anything in print about guitars and repairing them. As a result, I have an incredible library of reference books about guitars! I am also a performimg guitarist, so my approach is twofold; to fix any damage and to make the guitar as playable and comfortable as possible. Vintage Gibson guitars are a specialty...
My custom made guitars are a collaboration between the customer and myself. We design the guitar, choose the parts and materials and plan the appearance before the guitar is started. Photos of the build are sent to the customer as the build progresses. Please note that I do not make COPY guitars....I will not make somebody else's design. Every GPG guitar is unique, and has a lifetime warranty.
