Over the years, I have trained dozens of luthiers/guitar techs through my guitar setup and repair course. From the first few sessions onward, I found Kirby to be extremely gifted, creative, intuitive and conscientious. These traits are essential in our discipline.
In addition to his prowess with stringed instruments, Kirby is a master woodworker and helped me suss out a few thorny guitar-related issues.
The luthiers I have trained are my legacy. The best of them will carry on the tradition of excellence I have worked so hard to create. I am proud to have helped instill this work ethic in Kirby and highly recommend Francis Guitar Repair to take care of your stringed instruments.
