San Fransicsco East Bay Area luthier Nathaniel Rich is busy setting up his new space near his old working area in Berkeley, CA. I can strongly endorse both his fine setup and repair work as well has his even tempered professional manner with customers. I have been enjoying the high quality of his work and his mature and relaxed communication style for the last 6 years or so. Now that he is on his own, I can't wait to have him dig into some setups and repairs on some older instruments that are worthy of his talents. Nathaniel can be contacted at [email protected] or (510) 367-3119. The shop should be fully up and running by the middle of May.
