Richmond, Virginia Guitar, Banjo, Mandolin and Fiddle Repair

Neck Builds
Thank you for visiting the brand new!  Here you will still find a lot of how-to information on building and repairing guitars, banjos, mandolins and many other musical instruments.  I am a full-time Luthier and performer who owns a home-based business in Chesterfield County, Virginia, just south of Richmond, Virginia.

I perform all sorts of maintenance and repair from changing strings and doing detailed quality setups to repairing broken necks and even building conversion and replacement necks for banjos (like the neck shown on this page), guitars and mandolins. I am always busy with a backlog in the shop but I am truly grateful for that.

Please visit often as I will always be adding content.  Also, please check out my Facebook pages as well.  There are a LOT of photographs of both simple and complicated repair work there.
