"Alex is a thorough professional who more than met my needs both on the repairs and the timing. All you have to do is look at his workspace to know that this guy is very well organized and serious about his work. Just to top it off he is very friendly and engaging. I'm not in the habit of giving 5-star reviews but this guy is the real deal."
"Alex was very professional, considerate, and made my Strat sound better than it ever has. Very fair prices as well."
"The turnaround was quick, the repairs and setup were very high quality and worth every penny. I was blown away. To say I highly recommend this shop is an understatement."
"I am absolutely happy with the work that Alex did on my acoustic guitar! It feels a thousand times better and sounds excellent. I really appreciate the attention to detail."
"Resurrected an old friend that sounds and plays better than new and corrected a manufacturer’s defect in my Godin LGXT. Would recommend to my friends."
“I brought my old and beat up Gibson SG that had been sitting in a case since '06 to Alex to get it looked over and set up. He literally brought my old friend back to life, I haven't put it down since I picked it up. The action, intonation, everything was spot on. I broke off and lost a tuner peg and when I brought it in, he went online, found the same tuner, same hardware and matched it up just like it used to look! Alex is going to be getting all my business in the future and he's the first person I’ll tell my friends to go to.”
"Alex does professional work in an affordable and timely manner. I couldn't ask for anyone better to work on
"Alex is without a doubt the best and does work that is far beyond the anyone else I've dealt with over the past 30 years."
"Brought my Ibanez JS1000 and Prestige guitars to Alex. They play great. Better than I thought possible. For 20 years I've been bringing my guitars to the superstore techs. Those setups are a joke compared to this. Alex is also very easy to talk to and work with. Highly recommend.”
"I've had the actual privilege of seeing Alex work on several guitars and I can assure any guitarist/musician that his work is absolutely impeccable! His attention to every detail, the time he dedicates to each and every guitar repair order and the utmost respect he demonstrates to the instrument itself is over and beyond what one would normally see or expect. You can trust Alex with your prized guitars and you can rest assured he'll deliver back your guitar in mint condition. You can always feel confident that Alex provides attentive, professional and timely repair work for all of your guitars!"
"A lot of players don't realize that for an instrument to play well it NEEDS to be set up and it’s not as easy as it looks. I've played for about 30 years and as far as I'm concerned, Alex is the most accurate, affordable and knowledgeable. It's like having a new instrument. He's the best!"
"I'm 1000% certain that Alex has what it takes to run this country, because he sure as hell sets up my guitars way better than any other tech I've had in the past 5 years since I began my journey into music. His prices are good, his work is amazing and he's really cool. Another plus is that he keeps late hours, which is really convenient for those of us who have day-time obligations. Did I mention he can stare down the sun? Seriously though, I trust this man with my guitars and you should too."
"Alex does incredible work and is very attentive to detail. If you want honest work at great rates this is the spot."
"At last, my Fender Mustang sounds at its best thanks to Alex. Professional work, friendly attitude and fair pricing make Alpha Guitar Work my workshop for adjustments, tune-ups and upgrades. Highly recommended."
"Friendly and professional service, Alex definitely cares about his work and goes above and beyond. I highly recommend getting your repairs and other services done here."
"AGW fit me in at the last minute when I needed my guitar restrung. Super knowledgeable and you can tell he cares about the quality of service."
"Alex is a great guy to work with who brings real excellence and craftsmanship to his work. Highly recommended."
"Alex did a great job with my guitars, both an acoustic and electric. I brought them to him not having had a set up in some time, and he did a great job. They were like new guitars again when I picked them up! He was very thorough, friendly, and seems to care about doing quality work. I'll be bringing my guitars back to him again for certain."
"Alex understands the technicalities of a guitar. He is detail oriented; which is required for a good technician. He set my vintage 1956 Gretsch 6199 perfectly. It felt noticeable more comfortable to play and the sound was incredible. Alex checked out and reset the pickup. 24 hour turnaround as a favor to me was greatly appreciated! Highly recommend his services!! Will return as needed."
"Alex is a true professional. Brought my brand new Epiphone for a set up. Guitar sounds great and Alex had it completed in a day. I'd definitely recommend Alex for all your guitar needs."
"Brought my Alvarez acoustic guitar down to Alex because the instrument would not stay in tune and I got a slight buzzing when fretting some chords. Alex discovered a hairline crack in the bridge which he expertly repaired. Additionally he changed the strings for me and did a complete set-up. Icing on the cake was the fact he polished the guitar for me! All at a very reasonable price! I am extremely impressed with Alex's competence and would highly recommend him to anyone experiencing problems with their guitar."
"I have always done my own work on my guitars (pickups, etc.) until one day I snapped a bolt head off of my EDGE-III's saddles. I could very easily have laid waste to Planet Earth in frustration but instead I called Alex and he had my guitar back to 100% in less than a week and cleaner than it's ever been. I have never been able to get my action back to the way it was when the guitar was first purchased, and Alex was able to do it no problem. In summation, go to Alex for all your needs (including restringing) stop doing your own work! He runs a tight ship and even if you don't have a job you can afford his rates. Call Alex TODAY!"
"Great to find a very good and trustworthy instrument tech around the neighborhood. Very professional, very knowledgeable person. Knows his stuff. I will definitely come back for setup of my other guitars. Highly recommended!"
"I bought a Paul Reed Smith guitar off of eBay that looked incredible. Unfortunately when it arrived I wanted to put it through a wood chipper!! The frets were buzzing like crazy and it wouldn't stay in tune at all. I considered bringing the guitar to a local Guitar Center but someone advised me that their prices are through the roof. So I did an internet search an Alex popped up. I explained the problems I was having with it and he told me nice and calmly not to worry that he could fix it. So I bought my guitar to him and three days later he called and told me to come and pick it up. When I tried it out I couldn't believe what an incredible job he had done on it. No more fret buzz and it stays in tune!! I also had him swap out the stock pickups for EMG's. This guy is incredibly talented when it comes to setting up guitars and very reasonably priced. I won't ever consider going to anyone else. Definitely worth the trip to Union and a great guy to talk guitars with."
"Finding Alex was a godsend. Friendly, professional and goes that extra mile to get the job done. Best set-up man in the business."
"Overall best guy I went to. Extremely friendly and professional. Good prices and very happy with the outcome. Alex rocks."
