To me my guitars are like family. To send one to someone to do repair work, you have to have complete faith + trust in the craftsman. I have faithfully been sending my guitars to him for 15yrs and I am in constant awe of his work. Eiichi is a master of guitar restoration.
I was introduced Eiichi while recording KD Lang’s “TORCH & TWANG and INGENUE” CDs in Vancouver. Throughout the making of both projects, and to this day, he remains my first choice as a guitar repair /luthier. His meticulousness, intuitive understanding, inventiveness, and musicality make him a world class craftsman. He’s also a really nice guy.
Eiichi-san has been taking care of my guitars and basses since 1992, and he is one the very few people that I trust my instruments with. Domo arigato, Eiichi-san.
