Repair Shop
To my valued customers -
I have moved my home guitar repair shop to Ijamsville, MD. I am in the process of selling my former location in Rockville, MD. I am still able to see customers there on a limited basis. I'd be happy to see you at either location by appointment.

My repair shop was originally located for 10 years at Guitar Center in Rockville, MD. Guitar Center continues to use me as a repair vendor and subcontractor.

Free estimates and same-day service on most repairs. See Contact Page for my shop's address and location map.
