Repair Work Examples
Here is a small collection of spray and relic work
At the age of six I was given my first guitar, they absolutely fascinated me. The look, feel, the sound and their ability to express emotion as well as inspire feelings within this shy little kid. Playing music was able to change my mood and also bring about a timelessness that I didn't know was possible until I experienced being really 'in it'. Those moments are the inspiration behind the guitars I create.
Since 2010 I have been the owner of SOL Guitar Repairs, an established guitar repair business. Over these years I have serviced thousands of instruments and dedicated myself to helping players achieve their aspirations as well as a honor the need within me to make something better than when it entered the workshop.
All of these experiences are the driving force behind my guitar designs, behind me, my motivations and my contribution to something I love deeply; music.
Since May 2023 I have relocated the workshop from Riverstone to Lawson NSW, and in so making the decision to adopt the Orthius name for both the guitar builds and repair sections of the business. This is something I am excited and proud of and becoming part of the abundant Blue Mountains Music Scene a real drive for the coming years.
