My primary focus is towards maintenance, care, and repair of fretted instruments, and on a select basis I handcraft custom electric and steel-string acoustic guitars.  As a player myself, I know and understand the needs of other players. ‍‍‍

I am skilled, tooled, and equipped to offer the full gamut of guitar repair services and modifications, whether your electric or acoustic guitar needs a basic or comprehensive setup, new nut or saddle, fret dressing or full re-fret, acoustic neck reset, bridge re-glue, crack repairs, electronic repairs, or any other need.

Additionally, I offer handwound pickups in classic single coil (S & T), bass (P & J), P-90, and humbucker configurations, as well as pickup repairs and rewinds.

As a player myself, I know and understand the needs of other players.

Building upon a lifetime of playing, admiration, and studying all things guitar related and further building upon my career skills as both a designer and craftsman, I initiated my formal entrance into the craft of guitar building and repair through attending the Galloup School of Lutherie.  Upon ‍‍‍graduation in 2010, I established Radlin Guitars and extend my service offerings.‍‍‍
