Personalized service and attention to detail.
My name is Gabriel Viani: I am the founder and sole luthier at Independent Luthiery. Guitar building and repair has been a part of my life since 1992 when I graduated from the Roberto-Venn school of Luthiery. Bombshell Guitar Repair was my part time repair venture from 2001 to 2012. I spent 2006-2012 working for a large scale instrument manufacturer based in Boston. I started as a Custom Shop Luthier and eventually oversaw guitar repair, guitar and amp QA/QC, overseas production and video game hardware development. In 2012 I left my product management job to focus on my private repair business and begin to offer custom instruments. Independent Luthiery is located in Salem MA, just across the street from Collins Cove Beach. In an effort to keep service as personal and focused as possible, I work by appointment. I offer very flexible hours and fast turnaround times for most repair work. Please call 978-853-9517, fill out the contact form or email firstname.lastname@example.org to make an appointment.
