  • 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.

    “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!”

    Misha treats his craft and every detail of his work as a legacy to his customer. I’ve gone to his workshop with damaged guitars many times, and I would dare to say they sound and feel better than they did before they got wrecked. When someone asks me if I know someone who can revive their instruments, I'm always proud to tell the about Misha. I know for sure I’ll be thanked for the intel.

  • I have been trusting Misha with my instruments for over 15 years. Most of the instruments I bring to him are rare Mexican instruments, and old guitars, including a 1890 European Parlour Guitar. He always does excellent work, whether it’s repairing an instrument, installing a pick-up or simply doing a set-up. His is prompt and reasonably priced. I highly recommend him.

    For years I entrusted all my acoustic guitar repairs and setups to Misha. He really understood my needs as a player and his work was always of the highest calibre. I'd still be using him today if I didn't live a thousand miles away!
