Never visited the Vermont Guitarworks hospital before? Not sure what to expect? Well, my hope and desire is that you would find your experience at the VGW hospital to be a very relaxing, informative, and pleasant one. It’s important to me that there’s a mutual trust  that brings you confidence that your guitar is going to receive the highest level of service, expertise, and professionalism. I strive to ensure that your guitar receives the best repair/restoration/customization/etc care possible. Every person. Every guitar. Every time. No exceptions :)

Some things to expect during an initial guitar bench evaluation at the VGW hospital...

Solid and hollowbody electric guitars:

- Review of any and all issues. i.e., fret buzz, noisy output jack, intonation, any broken components, body or neck cracks, pick-up issues, etc.              

- I will perform an overall “guitar health” check up to see if there are any underlying issues there may be present.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                     - During the evaluation of the guitar with you, I will be entering detailed notes and information into my computer itemizing the various issues/items to be address resulting in a comprehensive hard-copy estimate for your review and approval before any work is done.                                                 -The estimate will also include a mutually agreed to guitar expected completion date. I want to make sure that you get your guitar back in a reasonable time frame that works with any of your guitar playing needs :)  

Acoustic guitars:

- Same as all applicable items above but also includes a real-time, high-def internal examination, viewed on a 32’ high-def screen of the guitar’s body (AKA, the Vermont Guitarworks Hospital guitar bodyscopy). During the exam, I will comment and point out to you condition points of your guitar’s “guts” observing for any damaged or loose braces, damaged or loose bridge plate, extent of any cracks, lining condition, neck block issues, etc.  AN INTERNAL VIEW OF YOUR BELOVED GUITAR LIKE YOU’VE NEVER SEEN! :)
