Mannella guitars is located in Verona, Pa which is slightly northeast of Pittsburgh. I drive about an hour and a half anytime I need repairs on my guitar, bass or amplifier. It is worth the drive every time. They have been doing acoustic and electric guitar repair since 1984 and are an authorized service center for several manufacturers including Martin, Taylor, Fender, and Ibanez. They also service guitar and bass amplifiers performing warranty services for Fender and Gallien-Kruger. Vintage tube amp repair and refurbishing is their specialty.View Website

Ok. So I recently recorded about four songs at Ampreon Recorder in Youngstown, Ohio. I was waist deep in vintage tube amps, beautiful guitars, and rack mounted pre-amps and effects. Pete’s enthusiasm to record amazing music was infectious and I simply had a blast playing and recording music there. If you live close enough and have some good songs to record I highly recommend going!View Website
