Default Still here.

So, it's been awhile guys.....but I'm still here. It's been a tough 6 months but things are sorted and starting back on an upward swing. 2018 will be a year of big changes at Howard Guitars.

It is with a mix of happiness, excitement and sadness that I make the following announcement.

Here is what is happening.....Due to some neurological issues some things have become impossible for me to do, like stand at a buffing arbor buffing guitars or run an air powered palm sander all day. So the finish business is done and closed for the most part. I am still doing all my own finish work for my shop but nothing from other makers or shops at this time. I just cant handle the volume I was doing and the last thing I want is employees to mind over, so that is that.

I am still however in the guitar business full time. Hope to still build a handful of guitars a year and still quite busy with repairs and restorations. This is really my focus at this point. With that said I find myself with two shops, one I do not need and one that does not function as an all in one. The solution I have found is to relocate. So I am moving myself and my shop to Magnolia Delaware. This site was chosen for many reasons, some of which personal.

I will be keeping to my regular hours until this location closes down so there is still time to get your instruments looked at one last time. Last day to drop off here will be Feb 15th and you will be informed of pick up timeframes when you drop off.
It has been my pleasure serving the players of the Harrisburg area these past 7 years and I will miss you all. Of course, you are all welcome at my new location opening late spring at
7 S. Main st. Magnolia, DE 19962
