I personally couldnt be any happier with the workmanship and effort
and his crew put into their work. Its refreshing to get advice from someone who actually expresses full dedication and passion in being a luthier. The quality of work is 2nd to none, and he truly cares about the customer before anything else. 1st impressions are a big thing for me, and i walked in this shop feeling like i knew these people for years. After seeing my guitar done for the first time, I was shocked at how much more alive the guitar looked. It was breathing new life.
took the time to explain in great detail everything he did on the guitar and helped be better understand the instrument as well. So, to say the least, my experience at Luthiers was simply world class.

came and assessed the house to determine which entrance would "fit"
the best. She and her employees laid down blankets and plywood sheets to protect my new hardwood floor from damage. The room
was being move into was a tight fit, but she and the crew worked carefully and it was in place exactly where I wanted it to be. Two weeks later she made an appointment with me and returned to tune
. It sounds wonderful!!

is a luthier shop that is run out of the owners' house. It's a family endeavor, and it shows in a very favorable way. And, while it's a bit out of the way - my own drive from the

Bench district was about 7 miles, or 20 minutes - I found it well worth the drive. They do have stated business hours but because they run
Santa Monica Guitar Repairs Provider Name Locked
out of their house, they seem to be very flexible about accommodating hours outside the normal business hours to help you adjust to the vagaries and demands of your own life.

I took a new and reasonably expensive violin to have a tailpiece changed. There was also some buzzing so I had them check the seams on the bouts, as well. The initial inspection revealed three seams that needed to be repaired. Later, on closer inspection, they found a total of seven seams had separated and needed to be re-glued. Despite the additional work they stuck with their already very reasonable original estimate and completed all the work in 2 days.

The instruments they rent and sell vary from a moderate, but still reasonable student instrument, to those suitable for professionals. And, while they focus on violins and violas, they also carry a few cellos and basses.

The price rating I'm giving this shop is based on the repair costs, not the sale of instruments, which can vary dramatically.

This small and intimate but very professional shop is a bit off the beaten path but I'll be taking my own instruments to them for all my luthier needs in the future.

put a higher nut on my old Tele and managed to save the old nut in case I ever wanted to get it back to original condition. He also took it apart and cleaned all the electrical connections and tightened up everything that had gotten loose over the years. Also, because it wasn't too much out of his way he picked it up and returned it after he had finished. He did an excellent job on all of it.

The service you receive with KY music is amazing. Big city musical experience with southern hospitality. Not to mention their prices were better than any other store I have been in. Wish I could rate them better than what I could.

I recently made an appointment through
Santa Monica Guitar Repairs Provider Name Locked
Services to have the keys on my piano adjusted by softening the action, which were a little "hard" to begin with. Setting up the initial appointment was very easy, as the woman who answered the phone was very organized and experienced. The company website also has the option to schedule an appointment online. I later received an e-mail confirmation for my appointment date and time, and also a confirmation call from the technician on the day of my appointment. The local technician for

, was prompt and spent about two hours on my piano. I am very pleased with the results, and now that the keys have been adjusted, my piano is much easier to play. I will definitely recommend this company to my friends, and their fees are very reasonable as well.

I have a piano that hadn't been tuned in close to 20 years. I was afraid that I'd waited too long and it might not be able to be tuned. Well
