Rocker to Luthier


I’ll never forget the day my father agreed to take me down to the local guitar shop to look at buying me my first guitar. I was alive with excitement because I was going to play in a famous band and tour the world!! You can read all about that in my book, “Well That Never Happened,” which also never happened... I did however get the chance to play in several bands with a bunch of talented people, had a blast playing, and music, especially guitars, have been a major part of my life ever since.
I started The Axe Bench because as a guitarist for over 20 years I never had a personal guitar tech. Like I said, I was in a band but we never made it to the status of, hey let me check in with my tech. So, for years I strutted along never taking my axe to a professional until I sent it in to a repair tech in Nashville because of some buzzing issues. I still remember getting my guitar back and feeling what a difference it made! I was blown away how it affected everything from playability including my sound. That sparked a passion in me and I wanted to know everything there was to know about guitars and how they worked. I began self-learning then I was fortunate enough to have some guidance from professionals which lead me to do small repairs for friends and friends of friends. One thing lead to another and I began studying Guitar Craft at Musicians Institute Guitar Craft Academy where I studied under Steve Mather of Fender Custom Shop, Derek Ness of Eastside Music Supply and many other professional luthiers. This passion of mine with my experience and knowledge base prompted me to start The Axe Bench.
The Axe Bench exists because we are passionate about guitars and the desire to provide personal service to every client. We understand the struggles of every musician out there especially in this market and you should never think well I would have a tech, if I could afford one. Well now you can! And you should have a guitar guy, The Axe Bench! The bench provides tailored guitar repairs, maintenance, customizations and unique builds that fit your needs. I want to take this time to thank you for stopping by and if there’s anything we can do for your guitar needs please don’t hesitate to drop us an email or call.
