David has been doing extensive repair work on musical instruments for almost three decades, with vast experience in acoustic guitar repair and restoration. His talent in this field is held in high regard by many musicians and collectors. His experience ranges from complete restorations of vintage and rare guitars to the basic guitar setup.
A challenging and successful restoration was that of Andre Segovia's Ramirez classical guitar that had been in an automobile accident. He has restored old Martins, Gibsons, and other vintage guitars of rare quality.
The Schneider Guitar workshop has two separate humidity zones consisting of a climate-controlled stringed instrument construction and repair area and a wood storage room. We receive every type of guitar repair and restoration imaginable.
We've worked on Ramirez, early Martins and Gibsons, and many others. David's experience with acoustic guitar repair work has given him insights into what does and does not work in guitar construction, and has helped him refine and perfect his own instruments.
