“Loved the course, fixed my guitar. Thank you so much for putting on the workshop. Ryan was great, what a wealth of knowledge! He was totally hands-on, he covered so much in a short time, and even went overtime. My Les Paul sounds like a different guitar! Even though he just scratched the surface, he answered so many questions, there are thousands more and he gave the info and the resources to find the answers. Again, great job, well done!!!!!”
