"Wow! I've done a couple thousand tunes-ups myself and have had a hand in fretwork, but I know Evan's first class results when I see 'em! Do these babies play perfect now!! Perfect work, done FAST, at low cost. Every guitar sold in NYC should go thru Evan's shop." -BRUCE HELGESON

"Evan is a great guy, very knowledgeable, fast and affordable. What more could we ask for?"
-WAYNE KRANTZ, Guitarist

"If you're a guitar player then you know how important it is to develop a rapport with a luthier or guitar technician that you can trust. This person has to be able to read your mind and help you to play at your best. Look no further; Evan Gluck is the best guitar tech I've ever found, and I've been playing guitar in NYC for 20 years. He really knows his stuff, is favored among top players, and is incredibly reasonably priced (and a cool guy.) PLUS he does rush jobs without complaining. How can ya beat it? Give him a try, you won't go back to your old guy."
an excerpt from an unsolicited write-up in "CitiPet Newsletter"

"Evan is hands down the BEST tech I have ever worked with in the whole damn city! This guy does everything. His prices are a bargain for the kick-ass workmanship. ALWAYS two-thumb up! My hand wasn't tired after a couple of hours of playing last night."

"I've brought Evan some serious problems and he's worked it out every time. He just won't quit til he finds a solution and if a standard fix doesn't do it, he invents a new one. He's worked wonders on my fav solid-body electric & fixed a devastating crack on a vintage acoustic. I keep trying to stump him, but he outfoxes me every time..."
-DAVID FIRST, Guitarist, The Notekillers

"My highest recommendation goes to Evan Gluck... He is quite skilled, a good guy, and unbelievably professional and honest. I brought him two guitars. He did a great job on one, the other had a manufacturer defect on it. Instead of doing it himself and charging me he out right suggested I bring it to a Martin Dealer to get the work done covered by my warranty. Not to mention turn around time was FAST. I highly recommend Evan for setups, repairs, etc."

"Evan's the man. Not only is he the nicest guy you'll ever meet, he's also quick, conscientious, and brave. If you have a wacky idea, Evan's down to try to make it a reality. If you need guitar work Evan's really the guy to check out, and he's got Legos. Legos!"

"I used to bring my guitars back to Italy with me for repairs, until I finally met Evan."

"Evan just finished working on my Ibanez Artcore and my Fender Stratocaster, I can not sing enough praise for his luthier work. My guitars are as happy as I am. I whole heartedly recommend his services. Evan is as knowledgeable and efficient with his guitar skills as he is with his people skills; just a really nice person."

"I feel like I have a new instrument. I feel like a new player, at least. Evan, if I may be blunt, you did fucking amazing work on my instrument. I plugged it in last night and man, it sounds awesome and plays easier than it ever has... I'm not just a satisfied customer I'm truly amazed. I was slamming on that thing last night!"

"I wanted to thank you for the excellent work. You've made my bass sound and feel so much better that it's noticeably improved my enjoyment of the instrument. You've also saved me from making an unnecessary purchase of a new bass. Thanks very much"

"Thanks so much again. Both guitars sound and play incredible! I really appreciate the thorough time and care you put into the work and details. They sound, and play, as good as they possibly could, the Strat maybe better than ever…"

"Hi Evan, I wanted to say thanks again for your work on my guitar. It literally plays and feels like it did the day I bought it...better even! I can't put it down."

"Thanks for the great setup man!! The 7-string is a beast once again. I don't think it played this good when I first got it. The guitar looks great, plays great and sounds great. You do great work. Thanks again."

"Evan Gluck is a musician and a repair man, he understands exactly what one needs, does it quickly and efficiently! Praise the Man!"

"Hi,I just wanted to say thanks for the great work you did for me! I hope you don't mind that I entered your web address on my page at 'all about'"
-ED CHERRY, jazz guitarist

"Great job, man! I will always support your sexy ass."
