I'm in need of a repair guy for my '51 Martin 000-21

Hey folks,

I have a '51 Martin 000-21 that is need of some help.

Does anyone have a "vintage Martin" friendly guru that gets work done in the same decade you send them the instrument?

thanks for the info. I'll give him a shout. Theres a lot of music trapped in this little 000, I'm trying my best to let it out!

Adam, I would recommend Ronnie Nichols, Harrison TN. He has a web site, Nicholsbanjo,com. There are pictures of a repair he did of my D35. He also redid my '42 D18. He is very thorough and knowledgable about all aspects of guitar repair, plus he will get the job don pronto cephus.

I just took a look at the web site. His work looks great!

thanks for the info

Might depend on where you are... I trust Michael Lewis with my guitars: http://www.michaellewisinstruments.com/

He's in Grass Valley (actually between Auburn & GV) CA

Gryphon in Palo Alto also has a great reputation for guitar work.
