Hi, I'm Eric Petrus, owner and operator of NoVA Guitar Setups in Alexandria, Virginia. I got my first instrument when I was 13 and I've been loving guitars and guitarists ever since.
I get a lot of questions about learning services. There seems to be a mystery around guitar repair. The information on the internet can be confusing. People are worried, for good reason, about doing something wrong.
My goal is to deconstruct the services and break them down into manageable chunks that anyone can digest.
I believe that business is a way to give back to the community in which you live. I would love to see others players achieve the level of competence they are looking for in repairs and modifications.
