into the Guitar Doctors facility is a great experience for any musician.
The atmosphere is very mellow and unpretentious.
You will most likely see Doc Pittillo sitting at his bench sipping
a starbucks coffee while working his magic on a guitar. The wall
behind Doc is full of guitars that are repaired or in process and
you immediately realize Docs' wealth of experience. Gibsons, Fenders,
Ibanez, ESP, Epiphones, Electric, Acoustic, Basses , Mandolins,
Dobros and guitars you have never seen before cover the walls.
Glass cases hold some of their custom hand made guitars and you
are welcome to try them out too.
You will also see Pavel Maslowiec buzzing about working on several
projects like a surgeon running five operating rooms at the same
time, re-fretting one guitar, painting another hand carving an archtop
while rewiring a bass. It’s amazing seeing the amount of work
these guys do.
You soon realize that you are hanging out with two of the best luthiers
in the business
who love their work and take pride in what goes out the door.
