I’m Jim Kozel, Cleveland-based luthier, guitarist, songwriter and teacher.  Music is the heart and soul of my life.  I have been performing my musical stories for well over half a century;  setting up, repairing and building instruments for nearly that long.  Your instrument needs to fit you like a comfortable old pair of jeans.  I approach every repair, setup or commission with that in mind. This website was created as a BLOG space so you can leave comments and ask questions. 

Musically yours ~ Jim Kozel


	

Epiphone ES-339 P90 Broken Headstock Repair

Taylor Lamborn brought one of her favorite guitars, an Epiphone ES-339 into the shop on January 3rd with a broken headstock.  One heck of a way to start 2017!  Here’s how it got repaired, including a performance by Taylor at the end of the video.  (You can check out her music at www.taylorlamborn.com)
