What Folks Have To Say:

"I just put down my "new" old guitar for a minute feeling like I have not since November of 2012 (the last time I came home with a guitar you rescued for me, my 1985 Guild D-46) to send you a much deserved thank you!  That feeling is one that is hard to describe. But you feel it when you are playing an instrument that has a wonderful sound due to, in large part, the new lease on life it was given by an accomplished craftsman.  When I bought this guitar, a 1994 Guild CCE100NT, it had a crushed top among other indignities and was sitting in the backroom of one of the big chain guitar stores awaiting a repair by some unknown repair "expert".  I was fortunate enough to be able to rescue it from a VERY uncertain repair outcome for the price of the hard shell case it came with (it is a nice case).  This guitar was in no where close to playable condition but I knew that if it had a chance of being "resurrected" Bucks County Folk Music Shop was where it would happen.  Karl you are always upfront with people on these repair issues and mine was no different.  You made no promises except that you would do your best to bring it back to it's musical life, and you did!  I just don't want to put this guitar down!  I wanted to thank you again.  (I didn't look closely at the Bucks County Folk Music Shop label inside the guitar till I got it home and saw "Resurrected from the dead", it's the truth and thank you!) - Dave D.


"The work you did on my Kala ukulele yesterday has made a huge difference. It plays great and for the first time since I got it, I can get the strings to do what my fingers were intending. This instrument is a great deal of fun and now I look forward to many happy days ahead learning to play it. And thanks again, for doing it while I was there! You have a gem of a shop and the moment I walked in I was absolutely delighted to be in such a well stocked and interesting store. Between a nice stroll through New Britain, a truly wonderful experience meeting you and some of your staff, and discovering your great store, I would have to say my dog, Sparky, and I had a terrific day. Thank you." - Stephanie M.


"I just began playing my banjo after picking it up earlier today, and...Wow!  I am only a beginner on the 5 string, but I can tell it feels, and sounds, like a different instrument.  So much better than it was...Karl did an amazing job replacing the 5th string tuner, and the set up is wonderful.  Thank you (all) so much for your help, and expertise.  I look forward to seeing you again and again.  In the meantime, I'll be practicing my rolls and fretting chords.  Thanks again!  You are the best." - John K.


"Thank you so very much for the excellent repairs and improvements to my beloved Whyte Laydie #2.  It sounds and plays better than it did when I acquired it 20 years ago.  I am enjoying a personal renaissance in Old Time playing." - Karen M.
