TESTIMONIALS

WOW!  The Axe Grinder does fabulous work!!!  I brought my girlfriend's guitar in for a setup and repair for a broken knob.  The guitar is a high end Jackson Soloist, which are pretty rare and made for metal shredding. The shop I previously took it to used the wrong gauge strings, messed with the bridge height and somehow broke the volume knob, so it was in serious need of fixing. Karen was friendly, accommodating,  and cares about music and musicians. The guitar was ready in a couple days and plays like a heavy metal shredder's dream!!!!! The action is amazing!  I'll be taking my Taylor Dreadnaught  in for some work really soon.  Oh yeah, almost forgot to mention the more than reasonable price.

Karen and Dave blew me away with their phenomenal setup and repair on my guitar. Very personable, very prompt, and communication was great - had my guitar back in my hands within a matter of days. Conveniently located as well. Would absolutely return for their service!
Brought in a 12 year old guitar that had really been through the paces, worn out frets, destroyed fretboard, broken electronics.  This guitar had been through quite a bit. Came off the bench shiny and clean! It plays like a new guitar again. That alone would be enough to recommend, but the service is also outstanding. Karen was extremely friendly and prompt making the whole thing a breeze. Thanks for giving my old guitar a second life.
Had a 60's reissue Fender bass that needed a setup. The truss rod is in a position that the neck needs to be taken on and off to adjust. Needless to say, despite the arduous proccess they got the action super low and by the next day it was done. They even polished it up, making it look pretty as ever! At Axe Grinders they are extremely friendly and affordable. I hope to take lessons from them in the near future.
Dave and Karen run a great shop! They were super responsive to my emails, fixed up my old guitar so that it plays like a dream again, and all at a very reasonably price. I highly recommend Axe Grinder - my new go-to luthier.
Hello, was able to finally play the guitar and it sounds great! 
"Prompt, professional, and responsive.  30-day guarantee on any work. Great service and their shop is really cool!"
Just tried my bass guitar and it is AWESOME!  Dave is a genius!  Thank you so much.
Have to say this is one of the best luthier experiences I've ever had.   Quick efficient service service and great communication.  Guitar plays like a gem!
Its a lot easier to play now than it was before. Thank you! :)
The guitar feels great!  Please thank Dave for me for all the extra work he put in.
Karen!  So wonderful.  It plays beautifully.  Thank you!

Just wanted to say last night I took my bass into the studio for a 3-hour session, and it was beautiful! Thanks again for everything.  I haven't plugged into my live rig yet, but I'm sure it will be great!

Thanks so much again for your phenomenal work on this guitar - can’t wait to hear how the next one turns out. Keep me posted!

Very nice and knowledgeable! Very quick and thorough service - went above and beyond helping me out with my guitar and gear. Will definitely be back!

Both the pickup and microphone now work...had to buy a new special preamp as you suggested. I didn't want to, but at least everything is up and working. 
Thanks again.
The bass is great!  The lower action is so noticeable and less strenuous.  Thanks again!
Super helpful and fast guitar repair! It was really easy to get in touch with Karen, even on the weekend.
Had a fantastic experience here. Karen and Dave are great. It’s a little out of the way, but this is where I’m getting my setups done from now on. I asked Dave to set up my Ibanez 540 (older Satriani model) and an Epiphone EJ 200 (jumbo acoustic) that 540 has a Floyd Rose style tremolo that most setup guys won’t touch but he set it up flawlessly and perfectly. On the Epiphone I asked him to bring the action down and the neck had been acting up (probably stretching out) as it was brand new and obviously not top of the line. That thing plays so beautifully now I haven’t touched my Takamine since. Highly recommend.
