Guitar Services, LLC
David Kriesel hails from the Northwoods of Wisconsin. The son of a carpenter, he began his journey in the love of woodworking in his fathers wood shop. His mother had that old beaten guitar on which he did his first string changes. She also bought him his first guitar (a Hamer Strat copy) and he brought it home and immediately disassembled every screw on the guitar.
He began guitar repair just after graduating high school (2002) at his small town’s music shop where he worked until he decided to attend the Minnesota State College – Southeast Tech (Red Wing) Guitar Repair and Construction program. He graduated the two year program in 2013 and earned a position at Gruhn Guitars. He published articles in Guitarmaker magazine and shot many guitar centric videos that can be found online. In 2020, he decided to start his own guitar services company where he began doing repair work with Dying Breed Guitars.
He specializes in neck resets, refrets, bridge work, touch up, vintage stringed instrument authentication, and is fully qualified in all other aspects of stringed instrument repair including being a Fender Authorized Service technician. His can be found on instagram: @kriesellyd
