About Us

Hi, my name is Mike Crocker and I've been playing guitars since 1963 and building and restoring since 2000.  My new shop is located in Aptos, CA in Santa Cruz County on the central coast less than a mile from the ocean.  It's not only a great place to live, but with such an even climate; a perfect place to refinish and restore vintage guitars.  I am also now building my own line of custom electric guitars.


If you have special project in mind or a small piece that needs to be created, please give me a call @ (831) 419-6636.  No job is to small.

Quality control is of the up most importance.  Several of my custom walnut pickup rings are being closely inspected by my shop mate, "Bitty."
All Guitars are strung with great attention to detail, tuned and intonated by "Bitty" who claims to have perfect pitch.
