"Buck & Buddy did a GREAT job setting up my Ovation UKII, adjusting the neck, action and intonation. After I got it home, there was a little buzzing on the G string (I had put a little heavier gauge string set on it). Buddy said he won't be happy unless I am, so I took it back in. He filed the nut and bridge saddle and it plays like a dream. These guys are the real deal. Don't even think about taking your guitar anywhere else.

This is the place! Thank you!!"

- Jeff Jarecki


"I brought in my Epiphone Korina Flying V and Buck did a great job installing 2 new pickups and cleaning out the guitars volume pots. Buddy was also very helpful and let me test drive everything after installation through a Orange half stack. Awesome place, I'll be back again soon."

- Steve Shannon


"Buddy is an expert musician. His advice, insights, and customer service are worth the visit. I support this local shop because they offer value that I can't get from the web or a large chain." - Kenneth Sweinberg
