July 2, 2010 in Richards Guitar Workshop
Just to let you know that we are now nicely settled in at our new home in Stratford Upon Avon. I say we because whilst I personally handle all sales and the processes thereafter I am backed up by my small but perfectly formed “team” of techs who without which I could not exist! (Scary!!).
My workshop is manned by Chris (in house) who is responsible for most of our new guitar setups and Phil whose off site workshop setup and extensive training in guitar building enables us to offer more comprehensive repair work and specialist modifications.
Chris has been working with me for many years and has been responsible for setting up literally thousands of guitars. A day doesn’t pass where I am proud to present a customer with a guitar that has passed through his hands.
Phil joined me last year following a personal recommendation from another Phil who runs the Totness School of guitar building. Phil came as a top recommendation following Phils successful completion of two courses where he personally built a solid body and archtop guitar literally from scratch. As someone who has been dealing with guitars for 15 years now I can tell you the standard of work Phil achieves is second to none and you will never find anyone who cares more about “getting it right”.
Some of Phils work can be found here at my blog pages. I sugges you take some time to have a read – all interesting stuff.
So now we are settled in I welcome all enquiries, big or small, simple or technical and most importantly I believe in providing these services at the most honest and affordable prices I possibly can. My most important goal is for you to walk away happy and to feel we had your best interests at heart at all times.
