To Amplifier Repair Page

Ever since I started playing guitar in the early 80's I have been repairing, maintaining and modding my guitars.  It started with my first acoustic which was an old Harmony archtop f-hole guitar with very high action, so I got a file out of my dad's tool chest and lowered the nut slots and bridge slots.  I've been working on guitars ever since.
