With over 20 years of education and experience in guitar and stringed instrument building, repairs and craftsmanship. My skills range from technical setups and support for professional musicians (live on location, and here at the workshop) to simple setups for beginners, re-stringing of instruments, repairs of electronics, pickup matching or pickup replacements, all the way through to major body and neck timber repairs, restorations, paint/finish resprays, and or complete rebuild and replacement of any timber parts. I also design and build my own handmade electric guitars !!
My formal training and experience began with Philip Carson-Crickmore (regarded as one of Australia's most prestigious guitar makers) and since then went on to work for two of the major Australian guitar production companies at various times in the past, both Maton Guitars and Cole Clark Guitars.
I have plenty of experience and an endless passion for guitars and stringed instruments to share with all my customers, so you guys can rest assured that your instrument/s will always be carefully looked after here at Guitar Guru Australia.
