Hmmmm, his website still says Hollywood.
Might be out of my price range anyway, we're talking < $500 guitars at this point.

Eric's Guitar Shop is great. http://www.ericsguitarshop.com/

If you are doing fretwork, Mike Tuttle is the man. http://www.bestfrets.com/flash/index.htm

Roman Rist is great also and he is building me a guitar right now, but he is up north now.

+100 on Michael Tuttle, if he's still taking on repairs (I think he might be focusing on building now).

If I don't do the work on my guitar, I trust Leland at Westwood Music.

Thanks for all the leads guys. Eric's Guitar shop looks like it'll work for now. Good prices and Van Nuys is very convenient for me.

Fren Asken is both an excellent tech AND an excellent guitar player.

He's also a TGP member "Frenster" - 310-838-3599

Fren, I hope it's OK for me to post your shop number here.

Paul at True Tone Music in Santa Monica is also excellent ... and busy. Jim Foote at South Bay Music Works - 310-379-5194 - excellent work. Bill Asher w/ Asher Guitars in Marina Del Rey - 310-821-2888, excellent work and restoration work too.

Hope this helps, Dana O.

Thanks, Dana O.

In the Long Beach area I would recommend World of Strings. They do all string instruments: guitars, bass, violin, chellos...
