2017, between a friend of mine and me, we’ve taken 10 guitars and bass to John. His work is exemplary. Very dedicated to his craft, and very eager to teach.
2017, John is extremely dedicated to his craft. He knows all there is to know. He does outstanding work. Highly recommended!
2017, Hands-down the best. I’ll never take my guitars anywhere else.

My Larrivée Guitar is a totally different guitar; you improved the sound so incredibly that I'm really kind of stunned and saddened that it had all that untapped potential for the 40+ years I've owned it. Now that I've really laid back and played it I'm speechless.
Also, with both the Loar and the Larrivee, I thought that I was losing my strength in my wrist due to old age or whatever, but now I realize that both those instruments were just hard to play. They looked ok, and what did I know? I had the Larivee worked on by other techs and thought that was as good as it gets; boy was I wrong. They both play like butter and I'm trying to find the time to enjoy these instruments. Thanks so much. Again, the sound of that Larivee...like a dream come true.
