About ARC 

"I am a musician. I've been playing guitar for 50+ years and have a consuming passion to play, repair, restore and build guitars. I accommodate stringed instrument musicians and don't mind a customer who considers himself  "picky." I tend to be a perfectionist and like my instruments set up a particular way - and so do you!

With more than 20 years of guitar and stringed instrument repair and building experience, I am skilled in every phase of guitar and stringed instrument care. My passion and specialty is vintage instrument restoration and re-finishing. I'm able to take your instrument from an un-playable, cracked relic and restore it to perfect playing condition.

I work hard to keep repair costs down and to earn your repeat business. My rates are less than the "bigger" shops in the Sacramento and San Francisco Bay areas, but I won't sacrifice quality or cut corners to get your business.
You'll get the personal touch and customer care that you deserve.

100% customer satisfaction is my number one priority!

References and additional pictures of my work are available upon request.

I have a very high ethical standard and live by the Golden Rule: "Treat others as you would like them to treat you."  I practice honesty, integrity, excellence  and purity in all that I do.

I am a committed Christian, retired pastor, h
usband and father of
three fine sons. My best friend is my beautiful wife of 29 years, Kim.


i endeavor to serve with excellence through all of the gifts God has given me. I love building and restoring guitars, but my first love is Jesus Christ.
My goal is that all my work reflects my love for Him."
