Ron is a true master luthier! He has done setups, a neck replacement, finish work, an appraisal, and a nut replacement for me and all of my guitars are now playing the way I had always wanted them to! I have brought guitars to a few different luthiers in the Philly area in the past and each time was dissatisfied with how my guitar was treated, how I was treated as a customer, or the lack of effort put into making my guitars play right and since I have brought my guitars to Ron I couldn't be more satisfied with the job he has done! Stellar work for very fair prices, the work is done in a timely manner, and I'm sure most guitar owners are like me and want the peace of mind to know their guitar is taken care of when it is getting worked on. Ron is the man, and he will be the only luthier working on my guitars now!

Ron has been working on my guitars for years and has always provided top notch service. Recently he took my so, so playing American Stratocaster and turned it into a dream fixing the set up and installing new pickups that met my specifications. AWESOME JOB! I trust no one
else with my guitars. He provides honest and quick service that is top notch. He even gave one guitar that I was considering buying the once over and told me that it was a no go.... he would not take a cent for that. This is the place if you want real guitar service.

"My 1925 Martin 0-21 had a warped top and the action was high as a result. I brought it to Ron and he repaired the bracing and bridge at a reasonable price. Now the top and the action are perfect. Ron is very knowledgeable and I highly recommend him."

What Ron did to my Gibson L4 was amazing. It plays better now than when I purchased it brand new!

"Ron has worked on my Martin D45 and my custom Gibson Hummingbird and Dove. I have been taking guitars to him for two years. I would never trust anyone else with these guitars. When I bring him a guitar that sounds even a little off he works his magic and they sound great. Let no one else work on your babies."

"So we are at our last show with the Plush Band and our guitar player shows me the work that Ron did on his guitar. It was like a true artist did the complete refret and electronics work and custom pickup selection. He played the guitar most of the night and the guitar took everything to a whole new level both in performance and tone. Ron knows his voodoo and vibe to get your guitar and bass playing at peak level. Yes...he is that good."
