I want people to love the way their instruments sound and feel after I’ve worked on them or built one for them. After all, working for the player is what I do!
I have worked for the last twenty years playing music, building wood structures, and managing local stage hand gigs. While apprenticing under a local luthier, and stage production maneger, It became clear to me that my passion is having my hands on an instrument. So I enrolled and completed my education in the construction and repair of guitars at the renowned Roberto-Venn school of luthiery. Now – with excitement, patience, integrity and experience – I bring this service to West Seattle and the greater Puget Sound area.
I got my ’77 Guild S-300 because I could feel it had some magic in it the moment I picked it up. Unfortunately, the frets were absolutely shot; so worn down that the guitar was practically unplayable from a professional standpoint. What I needed was a guitar magician to revive this old voodoo machine. Luckily for me and my Guild, I found that guitar magician in Todd Baker!
"I was on the hunt to get my boyfriend's old Takamine lawsuit guitar fixed as a surprise for his birthday. I was nervous, excited, and wondering if I should even take on the task.
After finding Todd, he put all those worries at ease. I found Todd's guitars through at internet search and quickly gave him a call. Everything from that moment on was a positive experience.
