"Just wanted to let you know that my guitar is better than it has ever been. It sounds good and is much easier to play. Thank you for your excellent work!" - Randy Becker
"Had a few problems with my resonator, Josh expertly fixed them and had the guitar back in my hands 24 hours later.
"Josh is friendly, honest and did a helluva fine job! Brought him a couple of my dad's old guitars and my son hasn't stopped playing them since I walked them in the door. Thanks!!" - Michael Phinney
