My Mission

My primary focus is on Electric Guitar repair, modification, rewiring and shielding.  As a Musician with a degree in Engineering  and 30+ years of experience in the Defense Electronics Industry.  I know how to build things that won't break.  I take a logical, scientific approach to solving problems and use my ears and fingers to verify that things are working correctly.


I owe my fabrication skills to my Father - a great Teacher, Cabinet Maker and Carpenter.  I am equally comfortable working in Wood, Plastic and Metal and have a very well equipped shop - particularly for electronics.


I like happy customers and stand behind my work!
