Professional Stringed Instrument Repair
Tim has been repairing guitars since 1984.
Working in Calgary for Long & McQuade for 6 years with experience on all major guitars
including, Martin, Laravee, Gibson and Taylor guitars.
Griffin Instrument technologies is a certified Fender Service Centre with
Tim holding certifications as both an electric and acoustic guitar technician.
Tim is a member of GAL - Guild of American Luthiers ( http://www.luth.org )
His dog Digger has a keen ear for good music.
Tim loves what he does, working on the full gamut of
stringed instruments from stand up Bass to electric guitars, violins, mandolins, banjos
and just about any other type of instrument that requires the
first class materials, extreme attention to detail and quality workmanship that Tim provides.
Tim started playing guitar at age 10 and
spent his time on the road playing guitar with a variety of bands from 1969 to 1985.
He still gets together with his old Big Band, the Southern Stardust in Calgary, http://www.southernstardust.ca/
and enjoys playing with local musicians with a musical taste that runs from
George Jones and Merl Haggard to Count Basie and Duke Ellington
with all the best rock in between.
The bar scene and the hard life of the road are memories now for this proud grandpa.
His true enjoyment these days is playing on his own hand made dobro, his pride and joy,
that took a year and a half of precious weekend time to make.
