Reviews By Real Musicians -
wanted to let you know the bass sounds awesome!
I brought it to band practice yesterday and it
thumped like a mother. Much better output and
more musical than before. Kudos! It plays very
well too. Great action and set up. Thanks

setup and installed new HMI “Vintage Spec”
From Frank Lisco
“This is the second time I’ve
busted this headstock, and Jonathan has fixed it
both times. Second repair is same as the
first-he gave it back to me and DAMN!, it looks
like it NEVER really happened! Good times!”
(Ibanez with a
broken headstock repair and re-finish):
“The bass is
fantastic. How nice it is to have a perfectly
calibrated instrument. Makes playing seem
back, I traded an old guitar for a 1986 Japanese Strat;
one of the best playing Strats I’ve ever picked up.
Unfortunately, the kid I traded with had made a
ridiculously bad attempt at “relicing” the guitar,
absolutely destroying a fine, age checked lacquer
it needed a re-finish, I decided to go with a different
look, specifically Hendrix’s “Woodstock” Strat. I
consulted with Jonathan and asked if the existing patina
and checking could somehow be reproduced. It had 22
years of honest age on it, and I didn’t want the
refinish to look brand new.
“Olympic White” nitro and white pick-guard set the
stage, but Jonathan’s judicious relicing techniques
really set it off. The “aged” look of the finish and
pick-guard look totally natural and he even got
the lacquer to check just like a 22 year old lacquer
finish would be expected to.
have a hard time convincing folks that it’s been
re-finished at ALL!
"I broke the headstock
of my cherished 30 year old Alvarez 12 string. The break
was on the back, right behind the nut. When I met with
Jonathan about the repair, he took the time to inspect
the damage, and assess the repair plan. When I got my
guitar back, you couldn't tell it had ever been damaged.
Jonathan hit a home run with the repair of my precious
recommended and worth every cent."

superior attention to detail, craftsmanship and
professionalism are such that I’ve trusted him with my
guitars now for over a year. I bought a
Carvin "drop in" set for a Peavey
“Predator” a few years back, and while loving the
single coils, the hum bucker in the bridge position
wasn't cutting it. Jonathan installed a
Seymour Duncan "Custom Custom" for the bridge
along with upgraded tuners, full shielding, new
5-way selector and cleaned up the wiring so the guitar was
"road ready". Now it SMOKES!
setup of this guitar is ROCKIN’!! "

works on all my guitars from simple checkups to fret jobs.
They always play 100% better when he gets done doing
what he does. He is meticulous about his work and treats
my guitars just like they belong to him. Matter of fact
he's working on my Les Paul as we speak, and I can't
wait to get it back !!"
