Overall Comments

Here in Southern California in the city of Claremont, I have been to this luthier several times on the recommendation of several local pros that know his work. This was including work on my 57 Gretsch firebird. On my 5 strings, he has done exceptional setup and invisible repairs. Very clean refinishing. For example, I just had him put in spikes on the 5th. He files the spike head in such a way as to round the sharp edges. Amazing attention to details like this. He is reasonable and fast without rushing things to much. His bio is at After some more work he did for me I upped the rating to a 10. The guy is frickin'wizard!

Overall Rating: 10
