but I have repaired countless other manufacturers' instruments in my 45 years of experience. The electric guitar textures changed my life and quite literally saved it. Getting me out of the streets and alleys and into garages, stages and studios.
I have been playing out, recording, writing and repairing these instruments since I was a small boy, learning to solder spurned by my interest in building slot cars, I moved to radio kits and eventually amps and instruments.
I believe the electric guitar and bass are unique and powerful tools that can make important statements for change as well as channeling ethereal beauty unlike any other instrument in existence. Whether its intended goal is political, emotional, spiritual or purely artistic, I love it's potential and always will.
Over the years spent in Los Angeles, San Francisco and Kauai, I have done my best to keep the instruments and their necessary, essential components in top shape so when a player picks up his axe he can create without the nuisance and bother of problems. I want to ensure his sonic paintbrush is ready to do its job.
Signature" Baby I should give up music and take the plunge buyyour brother's Porkchop on a stick consession at the fairgrounds, oh yeah, I spent the money on that '62 Precision.
