Maurice Adams

I attended Summit School in the spring of 2003 for the repair course they
offered. In my short time there I learned a wealth of great information and
technique, not only from the instructors but also the other students who
were building guitars all around me. The school offered a very supportive
atmosphere to learn, a comfortable facility, and the opportunity to make good friends.

Attending Summit was exactly what I needed to get the jump start to understanding
the most common and useful guitar repairs, and more importantly how to approach
learning new techniques or deal with issues that could come up when I was
on my own afterwards.
When I got back home I was able to start doing repairs for a local music
store at first and then eventually opened up my own shop. I have successfully run the shop now
for 10 years as a part-time business venture, and also explore guitar and tube amp building projects on the side as time allows. I encourage anyone interested in pursuing guitar repair and building as a hobby or full time profession to spend time on the "island" at Summit School.

Hello Summit,
It has been five golden years since I have attended and I really need to get to Sweden to do my internship this summer. Please contact me as I am so proud to have been a part of the best guitar building and repairing school in the world. Thank you  for all of your unconditional support while I attended and keep on being the best. I saw a man that attended twice with his guitars and they were awesome. There are more rings around the tree of my life and it would be so cool to come back and do more business in the upmost proper manner.
Thank you,
Galen Morrison II

Hello there!!!!!
How are you guy's today? Happy new year! what's new from the island of
my dreams? I miss you guys soooo much that I've decided to visit the
Island next summer. So if you dont mind having a blond dirty Icelander
for a visit and a cup of tea ,I would love to come to see you guys.
I've finally started building again, finally got some tools and
getting to use my dads facility a bit when the machines are getting to
loud here at home ;) And I'm going to an interview with this music
store to get some repairs from it so hopefully I can start making some
cash for the Canada trip next summer. I also started to read about
electronics and allready fixed guitar amps and started making guitar
effects so Im getting really excited again about building things.

Here is the same economic status,,, so it's really expencive to get
parts and tools but I just smile and the world smiles back so this
will get better and better and then little worse and then much better
Anyways, hope to hear how you are doing and get some stories about the
Island life.
big Stinnihugs and kisses and cant wait to see you guys, that is if
you'll have me :)
love love

Dear all,

I hope this finds you all well.
My new web site is finally online. Please come and visit... and feel
free to drop me a line.
With some of you I haven't been in touch for some time, just check out
what I have been busy doing!
All the best,

Hey Guys,

This is former student Wes Lambe from 2001. (10 years!?...) Hope everyone is doing well!! I have been really busy for a few years with just me in the shop, but things are really starting to take off for me here in North Carolina. I am looking for either an employee, or better yet an intern looking for work experience. (The details still need to be worked out, but it could be good for everyone.) I need someone who is skilled at repair but also wouldn’t mind spending time on the more tedious tasks. (sanding....) I am not sure I could offer a totally full time position for now, so in terms of employment, I am really looking for someone who is relatively close by. (Middle of East coast US...)

Let me know if you have or have had any (motivated) students who are from near this area that need a job. Or, if you have any students that would be interested in an internship in a really busy repair/custom shop. Work experience in Sweden, Japan, or Beautiful North Carolina!! (the sunny south!!.......)

If you have questions, or have the perfect person in mind, I can be reached through my contact info below.

Tell Sigmund and Mike hello for me!!
