Hack job:
I took my 30 year old Martin D-35L guitar to this shop based on their reputation. I was stunned when I got it back after a simple setup job. I found not only 1, but 2 scratches that obviously were the result of careless, sloppy workmanship. One was parallel to the bridge saddle (indicating a slip of a sharp tool while working on the unprotected surface). The other was a long scratch on the headstock (again due to sloppy work while working on the nut). An attempt was made to try and buff this one out, only to make matters worse by creating a sheen on the otherwise mat finish. The owner tried to snow me with some song and dance about every transaction being an exchange, where I leave something of me, and they of them, like shaking hands. What a crock! Then he tried to get me to sign a non-disclosure agreement (to prevent a posting like this one) to get a refund. His lawyer just so happened to be there at the time. I refused to sign and walked out empty handed. He called me later that evening and agreed to send the refund, which he did. Never again would I entrust them with my treasured instruments.

Editorial Reviews

Staten Island seems an unlikely place to find the best selection of anything, let alone fine acoustic guitars and assorted instruments of the like, but Mandolin Brothers has been doing it for long enough that no one bats an eyelash anymore. Their selection of vintage instruments is so enticing that if you've got the money to spend, you'll be relieved of it before you leave!
