REPAIRS

I am proud to have one of the best repair shops for stringed instruments in the United States.

As owner and Founder, and Head Luthier I have enjoyed my status as one of the top Luthiers in the inland Northwest region for 35+ years. I am also proud to say that I regularly perform some of the most difficult and challenging instrument repairs on new and vintage instruments from all over North America.

My shop is authorized for warranty and non-warranty repair for most brands including Martin and Takamine, and has been the only authorized repair center for Lowden guitars in North America.

My repair center (aptly named "Division Repairs") has also employed some of the best luthiers available in North America.

I am able to handle all your luthierie needs from the most complex structural problems, complete restorations and refinishes, to pickup installations and instrument set-up.
