I take all my guitars here. They have done some amazing work as well come through with some of my unusual requests, including but not limited to making custom pickup for a mandobird, and wiring my Jazzmaster for both the rhythm and lead circuit to both use both pickups and the 3 way selector. These guys are awesome!

I highly recommend the Perkin's family in repairs, parts and service! Customer service is number one and their knowledge of instruments is second to known! I have been a professional musician since the 70's and these guys, all the way back when their Grandfather hand made guitars are the best at their craft and they take good care of all their customers!

Hidden gem. Their service department is top notch, and really you can't find better luthiers around San Jose, I guarantee it. If you need work done on your instrument, they will take great care of it and do it at a great price. Knowledge, experience, attention to detail, honest dealing and sound advice make this my go to for important purchases.
