About the Event

As a boy my father instilled in me the values of honesty and integrity, he told me “when theres no tool make one, wheres theres a problem solve it and most of all do work you can be proud of.”  My journey to repair and concert guitar restoration started while in grad school at SMU.

 I always experimented with my own instruments electric and acoustic trying to fine tune them maximizing tone and playability. What finally lead me down the path as a luthier repairman was the frustration of not being able to find someone locally who could repair and adjust my guitars to the accuracy and specificity that a concert guitarist needed.  As a graduate student I had the time and freedom to devote to learning the craft so I took it upon my self to do so.  After many months reading the standard repair/luthier books and watching countless video tutorials I took to repairing inexpensive guitars that I would break then re-repair in a loop to refine my skills. 

Once I became competent in the work I was doing and felt confident enough I took my own concert guitars and practiced on them, takes nerves of steel and confidence to strip the finish off and take a hammer to a $7k instrument. I am a life long learner always striving for accuracy and masterful historical restorations.
