Maintenance

Every instrument has a unique life, a history. But with time and use come wear and change that call for reconditioning. Like its owner, every instrument has a personality that will shine through with the right care. After our one-on-one appointment, I will set up your instrument so that it brings out the very best in you.

Repairs

In every musician’s relationship with his/her instrument, there are ups and downs. The downs occur when instruments are involved in accidents or routine breaks that call for careful and expert repair. I can get your instrument playing for you as good as new, or better.

Upgrades

Maybe you are ready to take an instrument you already know and love to the next level. I offer a range of services to upgrade your instrument’s hardware or electronics to improve or customize its sound based on your unique needs and preferences.

About Me

My name is Andrew. I’m a local luthier who graduated from Roberto-Venn School of Luthiery in 2009. Over the past five years, I’ve worked for Precision Guitar as a master technician, studied under Michael Collins (gypsy jazz guitar builder extraordinaire), and then taught gypsy jazz lutherie and french polishing courses locally at the old Roberto-Venn campus. Currently, I operate Phoenix Fret Works from my home, build gypsy jazz guitars for Michael Collins guitars, and continue to teach French Polishing courses.
