Mark is a real pro and he transforms your old buddy into your new best friend. He fixed up a Strat for me and my Sigma classical and I have trouble deciding which to play first. The gui-tar Doctor!

Who is Mark Florio?

Like others I started in the basement, for me in New Hampshire working on my own guitars... then others... and slowly it became all consuming. In 2005 I visited Harry Becker of Becker and Cumpiano in Mass., then relocated to Marlyand and worked in final assembly at Paul Reed Smith Guitars. Some curves in the high and low road along the way eventually led me back again. Next there was a wonderful experience at Baxendale Guitar in Athens, GA, learning the skills of repair, restoration and introduction to building. Scott, Pam and the entire staff was just perfect for me, I could have not asked for a better support team. And my most recent training was a pearl inlay and acoustic guitar building classes with Dave Nichols of Custom Pearl Inlay. So... back to Connecticut and let's press on!
