My experience with fretted instruments began in 1972 with guidance from Noah Wulfe and an apprenticeship with Miguel Luciano, a renowned luthier in Greenwich Village. I cut my teeth and many guitar strings at Sam Ash in Brooklyn for two and a half years. I then worked at King James Music and started my own shop (Guitarcraft) in Manhattan in 1984. Through rock ‘n roll, folk, disco, funk, punk, metal, electronica, and grunge, I have done all types of repairs on guitars, basses, mandolins, and banjos, as well as violins, cellos, and upright basses. I also make custom instruments, and I sing and play guitar in a rock n’ roll band.
