If you play your instrument, over time it will require maintenance ... period. I've been playing a lot over the past couple of years, and my Martin GPCPA1, which is the best playing/sounding instrument I've owned in my ... more decades than I care to mention ... needed some work. Fret wear, fingerboard ... just not as nice to play as it once was. I dropped it off for Keirn to look and make his recommendation. We discussed a variety of options, from crowning the frets to re-fretting the first five. He's the pro. I told him to do whatever he thought was best.

I gave him carte blanche to do anything. I've worked with luthiers in the past who would take that literally, and immediately jump to the most expensive alternative. The difference here is trust in Keirn's integrity. He crowned the frets and leveled everything. It plays like a dream, and the bill was embarrassingly reasonable.

A craftsman with skill, knowledge, honesty and integrity is hard to find. Need guitar work? Look no further.

(31) Keirn, Brandon, and Tom have been doing amazing work here at Lucky Pick. They have worked on most of my guitars. Keirn has done some amazing refinishing work for some of my guitars, too as I can't seem to ever leave well enough alone. =P I consider them my friends as I've gotten to know them over the years since Keirn started Lucky Pick. I'm very much looking forward to Keirn's return and being back to good health.

Tom and the staff took great care to get my '73 P-Bass wired. It was finished the same day I dropped it off! How often does that happen? Great work guys!
I will tell all my band mates. mj

Keirn, Tom and Brandon, are top notch. They are very reasonable and knowledgable with repairs. They are the "working musician's" type of repair shop. I highly recommend them to those want a great job at an affordable price. Thanks gentlemen for sharing your expertise !

Dropped off my Jazz master for a a new paint job that came out excellent. Looked straight from the factory. Keirns work is by far the most professional I've experienced.

Fantastic work at a price that left me feeling embarrassed it was so reasonable. Wow. I learned a lot and highly recommend Lucky Pick; it is such a pleasure to find people who do great work, take pride in that, and treat you well. Well worth the drive from Mercersburg.

Dropped my fretless Jazz bass off last Saturday and Keirn dropped the action making it so easy to play. Never thought the strings could be set up that low and not have a buzz. Thanks so much for making this my new favorite bass to play!! My fretted bass will be coming to you very soon for the same treatment.

Yes, it is amazing what re-surfacing a fingerboard can do for a fretless instrument . . . Glad you can enjoy it once again.

I have been going to Lucky Pick since it opened in the fall of 2010 for all of my guitar repairs. Keirn does great work. I have had the best work on my guitars through my many years of playing and I now consider myself very fortunate to have found Keirn. He knows guitars inside and out as well as the many other stringed instrument that he works on.
I have been completely satisfied with all of the work he has done on many of my guitars. I find him to be very dedicated, experienced, meticulous and very knowledgeable about all of the work that he does!

I brought in my first Strat (2008 Squier strat) to Keirn for a setup. I had never owned or played a strat before and I had no clue how things with it worked. All I knew was that it kept going out of tune when I used the whammy bar.

Keirn not only took great care in fixing the guitar, he also took the time to show me a thing or 5 about technique with the guitar. I have been able to apply that knowledge to my playing on all of my guitars but it made my Strat playing especially better.

Sadly, I had to sell that guitar. But I'm getting another Strat next week (2006 Mex Strat in Creamy White) so I'll be making a return trip soon!

Well it's 6 down and about 17 to go. Keirn was the best recommendation by a fellow guitarist, Thanks Adam, he not only made my 3 Les Paul's, my MIM Strat, my Burns BM-01, and 12 string Takamine feel and play the best they've done in years, but he also taught me that I had always used the wrong gauge strings. I truly enjoy my visits to his shop because he always has something great to teach you, or show you. Keirn your work and advise are superb..!!! See ya soon.
