"When your gear is beaten, bruised and rusted after a tour, Aaron is your guy! His attention to detail and care with each instrument is what sets him apart, and he stays in touch with each step of the process to make sure you're happy with the end result. It's always a pleasure to pick up a freshly set up instrument from him, knowing it will sound and feel as it should each time. I've already recommended him to all my bandmates and guitar friends, and you should definitely give him a look too."
Sleep Makes Waves
"I work in a busy music department in a high school. Aaron’s services and repairs on all our guitars continue to withstand the rigours of the rehearsal room and stage, enabling reliable performance every time. Inputs and volume and tone pots are always rock-solid, and the intonation is always accurate. Aaron’s maintenance program suits our needs perfectly, and his prices are reasonable for our budget. I’ve also been trusting Aaron with my own guitars and basses for years now, and I’m always impressed by his dedication to precision and attention to detail. As a gigging bass player, I’m always excited to discover that my instruments return from Aaron’s workshop feeling better, and sounding better than ever. I look forward to working with Aaron for years to come."

"Had my '79 Ibanez Blazer bass set up by Aaron. He lowered the action to the perfect spot and tidied up the fretboard and pots. After a chat about my playing style he suggested getting heavy flat-wounds to give it that super 70's dry/woody/ballsy tone. Anytime anyone gets the lucky chance to play that bad boi, they freak out! People always comment on how nice it feels and how sweet the tone is. I say "It's not the bass, it's the player" - but that's a lie, it's totally the bass."
Richard in Your Mind
"Aaron has been fixing, tuning and upgrading our bands' guitars for over two years. His precision, consistency and attention to detail have contributed enormously to developing a quality sound of our own. He is attentive to your playing style and his prices are very reasonable. Furthermore, his friendliness and patience surpass that of any guitar technician we have ever dealt with. We even got compliments from our recording studio on how well our guitars were tuned! A true professional, 100% recommended."
STEVE AND TOM
"I'm very particular with my setups, my expectations could be considered unrealistic. It's no problem for Aaron though, he delivers every time. I recommend Aaron to all my clients at the studio and won't trust anyone else with my guitars."
