I graduated from Roberto Venn School of Luthiery in 1994 and I have been working as a stringed instrument repairman every since .
While the course specialized in Guitar building and repair I soon branched out to include just about
any instrument with strings , including Mandolins , Banjos , Ukulele's , Dulcimers ,
Autoharps , Basses and Violins ,
After gratuating from Roberto Venn School of Luthiery I went on to work at
Gibson Guitars , Phoenix Guitar Company , Guitar and Keyboard city , Music go Round ,
Music Brokers and I was the repairmen on call for the Tempe Guitar Center .
I had also started my own business named Bernie's String instrument repair where I learned
the knocks of running a business and ultimately layed the ground work for my carrer as a Luthier .
Currently I have worked for the last 6 years at Acoustic Vibes Music where we service and sell
Martin , Gibson , Breedlove , Bedell , Lowden , Macphearson , Bourgeois , Collings ,
Guild , Hill , Cervantes , Taylor , Santa Cruz , Deering , OME banjos , Kamaka Ukes and Weber mandolins .
Basically I'm a guy who loves to figure out how things work and fix them when they aren't
working right .
