Jerome Jeffrey, shop owner and technician, is a professional guitarist and teacher who, over the years, has developed a passion for fixing, modifying and setting up guitars for the optimal playing experience. Jerome was formally educated in the art of guitar repair at The Summit School of Guitar Building and Repair in Qualicum Beach, B.C. under the instruction of master repairman Mike Jarvis and world renowned luthier Sigmund Johannessen. Here, he learned tried and tested methods in guitar repair from some of the most experienced instructors in the world.

“When you bring your instrument to my shop not only will you receive the attention of a trained technician, but also the discerning eyes and ears of an accomplished guitarist who understands how a guitar should feel and sound. Your satisfaction with your instrument is my primary goal.”

We always try to accommodate your schedule whenever possible. Just phone for an appointment to drop off your instrument at your convenience. If you are a professional musician who needs a job done in a hurry we will put in the extra time to accommodate your needs.
