Covid-19 Update: I'm by appointment only. Please feel free to message or call me to setup a time. Stay safe out there!

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, we are closed this week for safety reasons. Thanks for your understanding! If you have an instrument at the shop, please feel free to call or email to check in. Stay safe out there!

I will be in the shop this week, but the door will be locked. Please feel free to call or email to setup an appointment!

I do full assembly and setup for your partscaster projects! I've put together many Warmoth, USA Custom, AllParts and other kit guitars over the years. Feel free to call or email about questions or advice, or if you'd like an estimate for assembly!

Anne just came in and got her guitar setup. The string height is half what it was before, now she's ready for her lessons at Montavilla Guitar Studio!

This very cool vintage Kamaka ukulele came in for some TLC. Couple of loose joints, cracks and a bit of fret work. Check out the rope binding!

This cigarbox mandolin has been played a lot- check out that wear! A new set of stainless frets are being installed today, it'll soon be ready for another round!

I just rewired this PRS with treblebleeds and gold Lollartrons- looks and sounds very sweet.

By far the best repair shop in Portland. James setup my Japanese 12 sting electric, and now it plays better than it probably ever has! Definitely going back.

James does great work. Highly recommend for any stringed instrument. Everyone of mine that he's touched sounds better and plays easier.

James is really a great guy and excellent guitar tech. He made my 77' Takamine jumbo sound and play awesome! Extremely fair pricing, timeliness and communication; definitely will be a repeat customer.
