Lutherie & Instrument Repair
I started working in instrument repair when I was 17 and bought my first upright bass; my new bass had its neck completely snapped off, had no sound post or bridge, and a warped fingerboard.
After training at the San Diego County Music Exchange for seven seven years, I decided to expand my craft in Sonoma County. Scroll down to see what services I offer.
