F.S. Lutherie is a Brooklyn, NY based guitar Custom Shop and repair workshop started by luthier Farhad Soheili after spending 20+ years repairing, restoring, and custom building guitars throughout Southern California and New York City. We are located in Greenpoint Brooklyn just north of Williamsburg, very close to all public transportation. We are currently 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 before moving to New York City in 2007 and furthering my craft.

I am 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 work 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. You’ll 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.

All of our repair work is backed by decades of experience and comes with a warranty period.

Please note we are an authorized dealer for:

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