Electric Guitars/Expert Profile

Ask A Question


Guitars and cats make life so much better. Playing the guitar is a wonderful thing, fixing you guitar is not that hard. I have played since I was a kid and started to fix guitars and the other things that needed repair. I still repair guitars for friends and myself and do enjoy it. I rebuild old guitars to their former condition, all amps and music gear. That the mystery out of where and when a guitar was made. The value of it and the difference between junk and a guitar you can grow old with. Ask me things and have some fun.

Experience in the area

The fascination with electric guitars is the top for me. I fix amps, wiring and put the things that fall off back on. The way to really set a guitar up and make it a player. Buying a guitar is an art, and good amps that will get out that tone we all look for, Zen guitar and amplifier is a way to approach it. Better is no worry ask an expert.


Library of congress, five patients. I write on several guitar forums and many essays on guitar health.


PhD, MS, BA and a BS all from CMU. I have a BA from Mercyhurst College.

What do you like about this subject?

I am a mechanic, I build things. Guitars fit my personality perfect, a great reward for your efforts. Learning to play is one thing, playing a properly cared for instrument is the complete package. Simple things like tuning and string replacement are things you need to do as a guitar owner. Cleaning is up at the top but it can be done wrong. Things done the correct way is what I am about.

What do you still hope to achieve/learn in this field?

Play my guitar just for fun. I am always critical of my work, and need to learn how to relax with my guitar.
