    “For the past nine years I have taken various guitars from my collection to Misha Udovenko for repair. Sometimes the work was of the order of a guitar setup, sometimes a disconnected neck on my ukulele! In all cases, Misha has restored my instruments to top condition and playability. He takes great pride and care in his work, and it shows! On my Gretsch archtop, he fashioned a wood base plate to bring the pickups closer to the strings. Beforehand the distance from pickup to strings was overly far, compared to other archtops. The neck was already at a perfect straight angle, so his solution gave the tone much greater presence and fullness! Plus it looked both sleek and discreet! This was another wonderful improvement to my guitars! May I add that prices are very reasonable, work is done on time, and last but not least, he is an incredible human being! I recommend him most highly!”

Every time a Guitar comes back to me after He's worked on it...that Instrument is more Beautiful than ever every way possible!!

  • I have had 2 fabulous guitars with Brazilian rosewood; one is a Bill Lewis nylon the other is a Gurian steel string.  Both of these incurred airplane mishandling - 6 months apart! Misha repaired a 24 inch crack in one and a 26 inch in the other. You would be hard pressed to find either of the original cracks. Misha has also done setups, intonation, fret dressing & trust rod adjustments to my Bourgeois OM & mandola. His prices are always fair and my instrument always comes back looking better as a result of a unique French polish he uses.  I've had various people set up or repair my valued instruments over the years, several good ones, but I think Misha is the best as I trust him with my instruments.  I highly recommend him.

  • HAVE YOUR GUITARS SET UP BY A MASTER! I could have just said to have it setup. String height, intonation, fret job. But I have had mine done by masters and by people who just claim to know how to do a setup. The difference is staggering. My guitar (master) knows what I like. He knows how I play. He knows I use 9 gauge strings. He knows how I like my nut filed. He makes it all work. When he retires, I will be a very sad guitar guy.

    I've had Misha work on everything from my electric basses to my concert classical guitar. He does masterful work and leaves out no details. Definitely one of the best on the West Coast!
