George MacPhail: Better known as "The Doctor", has been tinkering with guitars since the early 1960's and has worked at The Music Gallery since 1975. George has personally repaired or adjusted over 20,000 instruments. Considered to be a walking encyclopedia, George has forgotten more than most will know!
Chip Jurkovac: Starting at Dean Guitars in 1980, Chip participated in all aspects of guitar construction. After honing his skills in parts installation, set-ups and fret leveling he moved on to the finishing department. In 1986 Chip left the Dean Guitar Co. to work in the finishing department of Hamer Guitars where he would stay for 2 years. In 1988 Chip joined The Music Gallery staff as our main Repair Tech and after 19 years is still going strong with several thousand happy customers. His abilities range from the best setups around to immaculate fretwork, refinishing, rewiring, you name it! The other guys at the store are pretty capable of handling most of their own work, but they are more than willing to have Chip work on their guitars.
