Repairs and Restoration
Stringed instrument repairs require a unique skill set and a commitment to accuracy and precision. Often the difference between an instrument that gives a mediocre performance and one that plays exceptionally may only be the difference of a few intricate adjustments. Sometimes this is undertaken with tools and instruments of measurement. At other times it is a combination of these and an instinct, a 'feeling' for the instrument and what it requires.
