In brief, you should know the following about me:-
My workshop has been in existence since 1992.
It provided a quality service 
to the miserable pluckers of Manchester, England.
My specialties are custom building and restoring guitars and mandolins.
And whacky stuff like the solid electric balalika one guy had me make. 
I love to work on acoustics but I'm not too proud to handle a solid-body.
My regulars  particularly value my fret-jobs and set-ups.

My workshop is located at Tywyn, West Wales, UK but don't worry, all the local carriers know the way.
Although an initial consultation in person is very useful I can do good work for a faceless voice too.
Music is an aural phenomenon, after all.                            

So don't hesitate a moment longer, I am at your disposal.
