FretworkMost guitar players -- especially the exceptional ones -- spend so much time perfecting their playing skills that they are not aware of all the adjustments and set-up techniques that are necessary to make the guitar easier to play.

So few guitarist -- and even fewer craftsman -- are aware of this precise setup. After more than 30 years of experience, we pride ourselves in the ability to adjust your guitar to play its very best.

But let some of our customers tell the story.

Fretwork"Hey Joe!" writes Virginia guitarist Warren Sedberry"I just picked up my Howard Roberts Custom Epiphone guitar today and had to make myself stop playing it long enough to send you a note of thanks for doing such an excellent job on the frets. It plays and sounds great! I was able to lower the action just to where I like it,not too high,not too low,but jusst right. THANKS!!!!"

And Vince Lewis of Amherst, Va., notes, "Joe Dobbs recently did a fret-dress on one of my custom-built Heritage archtop guitars. I demand a super low action for the style and way that I play, which requires a perfect set-up. After Joe completed the first guitar,Fretworkover from Virginia to have him perform his magic once again.

"These are very expensive guitars, and the work was completed quickly with the instruments returned to me in perfect condition. I HIGHLY recommend Joe Dobbs as the guitar technician for any professional player who demands the best in quality service. When it is your living, you can accept nothing less."

We at Fret 'n Fiddle know that having a guitarist report that a repaired instrument plays great is the most complimentary thing that can be said to a technician.
