- Structural Integrity: The goal with structural repair is always to re-establish the strength and longevity of the instrument. We treat each guitar individually, and our approach always involves an in-depth analysis and understanding of the instrument’s character, it’s history, and it’s future life in correlation to the player’s needs and expectations.
- Correct Geometry: Proper alignment and geometry is crucial to achieving an instrument that plays properly and sounds it’s best. When we repair structural issues, correcting the geometry and alignment of the guitar is always the final consideration and goal.
- Aesthetic Restoration: We are eager to impress you with a visual surprise when your instrument returns. We always consider the aesthetic result when approaching large repair jobs, and we will consult with you on your expectations and desires.
