- Repair Crew Member
James has slowly been working his way westward for years. He was born in England, but grew up mainly in Vermont. His foray into guitar repair started when he and his Dad swapped the pickups in an old Hagstrom, and ever since he’s had the bug.
He built some solid body guitars in the farm basement, using FRETS.com and Dan Erlewine books as a guide. All this pointed him out West to learn more at Gryphon with Frank Ford & Co.
James has articulate hands, and when not working with guitars, he paints with oils. He attended art school in Maine and recently has been painting plein air around the bay area. In his spare time he plays in bands ranging stylistically from country to hard rock.
