A guitar player and performer in and around the Denver scene for twenty years, Tony was “lucky” to have gotten involved in the guitar repair business. Wanting to learn how to set-up and repair his own guitars, he turned to longtime friend Eric Deyoe, an expert repairman and luthier. Tony apprenticed under Eric for over a year and found the work something he’d like to pursue. After a fortunate turn of events, Tony was invited to apprentice at the Colorado Guitar Company under master luthier John Baxendale. He has been honing his guitar repair skills at Colorado Guitar Company for about 2 years now and looks forward to the day he can be considered a luthier. Tony is grateful to be working with John whom he considers, “the finest luthier in the state of Colorado”.
Tony resides in Denver, CO and loves spending time with his wonderful wife and their ten year old son. He finds gratification in his work at the Colorado Guitar Company and enjoys playing the guitar in his Denver blues band, “The Outliers”.
