F.S. Lutherie is a Brooklyn, NY based guitar Custom Shop and repair workshop started by luthier Farhad Soheili after spending two decades repairing, restoring, and custom building guitars throughout Southern California and New York City. We are currently located on border of the Greenpoint and north Williamsburg neighborhoods, and are available by appointment only.

“I started modifying and setting up my own guitars as a teenager in southern California, with my very first electric guitar. By the time I was 17 years old, I was doing set ups, fret, and electronic work for friends in local bands. From there I graduated to doing guitar repair work through local guitar shops, where I learned so much, and sharpened my skills.

I am (along with my small team) dedicated to bringing expert quality repair to your instrument. Offering all levels of repair and restoration service from basic setup work to custom mods and period correct vintage restoration jobs on electric and acoustic guitars and bass guitars.

My business has always been based on bringing my customers the best quality service at fair rates which most musicians can afford, and a fast turn around time. We are by appointment only to ensure that you have my full attention when you are here as we examine and discuss repair options for your instrument. I make sure your instrument is custom tailored to YOU. We are also proud to offer our own custom line, FSC Guitars and Instruments, custom in house wound pickups, and custom accessories.

Please contact us for your specific instrument and repair needs, or to set up an appointment for a free consultation, thank you”
