    How come you have your own subforum?

    I've lived in Chicago and have been playing for about 35 years. I know most of the guitar dealers and repair people in the region. I've never heard of this shop.

    I've been providing custom shop services on a private basis for 18 years and, two years ago, I decided to formally for a business. I don't operate a storefront, and still work by appointment. My facility is located in a loft space in the West Town neighborhood. Now that I have a formal business, the big difference (aside from paying tax) is that I now sell some custom finished guitars on my site and I am a dealer for several parts/accessory companies. The core of my business is still restoration/refinishing/customization for musicians and I am pleased to have had the opportunity to work with so many members of this forum. I've also started marketing, since this has become a full-time gig.

    Nice to meet you!

    Just up and running... check out the shop at windycityguitars.com. Actually, take a look at the whole site. Just redesigned and fine tuning.

    The guitars will be the same as the ones I have done for many members and you can check out the threads.

    Mr. Beef's work is USDA Prime.

    I follow all his threads on this forum. They are my favorite build and finishing threads I've seen here.

    If I had a guitar going out for customization or finishing, it'd be headed to the Windy City.

    I'm all for supporting a Chicago business, especially when it's guitar related! When I saw the Hawks shirt on one of your videos, I was sold, LMAO! Good luck with the business venture!
