I am so impressed and pleased with Gary’s attention to detail. He always gives me exactly what i’m looking for, and even goes above and beyond that by coming up with some modifications that surprise and interest me! He’s a true craftsman. Mark Anthony Larmand

Hi Gary.

I just wanted to thank you for the magic you infused into my Mandolin and Cittern. Such a master’s touch being reflected in the set up and adjustments, coupled with a trained musician’s ear and touch, directed to the function and performance of each instrument, makes them a dream to play.

The electronics installed in each instrument allows for the finest resonance to express in a pure and clean vibration from within, and project a clear duplicate expression through amplification.

Fantastic job Gary! I would recommend you to set up any serious musician looking for the “top drawer” refinement you present.

Be well, Bob Farmer. Bob Farmer


When I brought Gary my 1958 Gibson LG-1, I wasn’t looking for much more than a general assessment of its condition. What I got was something very unexpected. He made a long, long list of fine adjustments that changed the tone, intonation and playability of the guitar to the point where it sounds better than any other LG-1 I have played. I highly, highly recommend Gary Norris for any and all of your instrument repairs and more. He is a consummate craftsman with an eye for detail and a deep and detailed understanding of what makes a guitar play and sound amazing.

Hi, and many thanks for the excellent work / craftsmanship.   The fret work replacement 
is superb.  Exactly the fret size, and finish that makes that guitar bright, clear, and so
easy to play.
I will highly recommend your service to any professional players who want the very best.
regards,  and yes you may use this comment as a testimonial, if you wish too.
