I was doing cosmetic repairs and they were incredibly impeccable. You could not tell anything was broken. I did not even know I had that talent. I thought it was something easy to do. You know, the srv guitar face bodies and wings were the hardest thing to do.Anyway I come up this way and it’s how I got to be where I am. But I did all phases. I got into guitar because I could not play the violin. And I thought what better thing to do than not only attach to the guitar, but actually play and make sure it is fixed.
