Lastly, we need strings ... You can argue for ages about individual taste. So every guitar player has to find his personal favourite. The reason I choose D’Addario strings for my instruments is their guaranteed consistent quality.
Watch your thoughts! They are the initiation of your actions.
Chinese wise proverb
Anyone who works in a creative and constructive profession knows the feeling of having close ties to his work. Each new guitar has its own story to tell right from the very beginning of its life. My instruments are manufactured individually and all bear a soul within them.
One important component of my work is repairs and servicing. Many musicians underestimate the value of a professionally serviced guitar. A lot of "played to death" instruments come back to life after a few hours of work.
It is quite rare that I get to undertake a restorations of an old guitars, yet it is all the more exciting for that. The main aim of any restoration is keeping the original instrument alive.
