Portfolio - Other Fretted Instruments
Mandolins are some of my favorite things to work on. I don't see them nearly often enough! I think it might be the fact that I love playing them that gives me such a love for making these little guys better. I work on all styles of mandolin and mandolin family instruments. A style, F style, European, Bouzouki and more. All these instruments will find the care they may need here.
This is another specialty item for clients that might need it or want it. I carve these bridges custom for each instrument I make them for. They can be capped with bone or made of simple wood and intonated to the specifications of the player. This one happens to be on a mandolin but I can make something similar for any instrument with a floating bridge.
Banjos of all types and eras are very welcome here at the shop. Believe it or not, banjo was the first stringed instrument I learned growing up. I am deeply familiar with everything there is to love about them, and with the things we might not love so much...I may subject you to a banjo joke or two for bringing me one to work on but I think you'll find the work I do worth it.
Sometimes even these simple little guys need some work. All types and eras are welcome. Whether it is classic vintage uke like the tabu pictured above or a brand new one from the store, a trip to my shop might do it some good. Got cracks? Pealing bridge? Action to high? Let me take a look and see what I can do!
