Hi, I'm Iain...

My background in graphic and fine arts developed my eye for detail and aesthetic perfection. My experience in aerospace and medical parts fabrication gave me precise skills to achieve technical and artistic perfection in the realm of stringed instrument repair. I excel at highly detailed work that requires a strong eye. I started playing guitar in 1999, and I was so inspired that I immediately began buying parts and assembling my own guitars. I devoured luthier how-to books and taught myself how to do it all.

Or so I thought...

It wasn't until I got job at a guitar manufacturing facility that I learned a much more rigid, time-tested method of stringed instrument calculation. The Breedlove way. The key is to never be satisfied with your skill set. Always look for improvements in your technique.  

I take particular pride in executing highly detailed fret work and bridge detail, and in making nuts and saddles from blanks. I enjoy working on repair projects that require an insane attention to detail. Take one look at my black-and-white mechanical pencil drawings and you’ll understand my obsession with detail. Guitar repair is essentially another form of art.

I offer competitive pricing and 10 years of experience. I am the only Breedlove certified repair tech outside of the Breedlove factory.
