Can anyone recommend a good guitar craftsperson to repair a prized 30 year
old Guild acoustic guitar? I need to replace my tuning pegs and am looking
for someone skilled who knows how to treat a valued instrument well. Thanks.
For a good time talk to John Mello in Kensington (510-528-1080).
He's a master luthier who can do anything with guitars. I've been going
to him for over 10 years. He's not cheap and he's pretty busy but
he does truly superior quality work.
We have a friend John Mello --- 437 Colusa who makes fine guitars. I
wonder if he repairs them. 528-1080
If not, I am sure he can recommend someone trustworthy.
Professional guitarists take their guitars to Chris
Berkov. He is very good, and very busy. He is at
925-228-7321, in Martinez.
I would highly recommend Gryphon Stinged Instruments (650/493-2131) in
Palo Alto. They are THE BEST this area has to offer.
John Mello is a luthier in Kensington. See www.johnfmello.com for contact info
