I'm running Wright Guitar out of Vance Music Studios, and work at the front counter two days a week. The days I work the counter, you will find me available for estimates, and dropping off instruments. My current days are Wednesdays, and Thursdays. I'll be at the front desk at Vance Music Studios now on Wednesdays, and Thursdays from 2:00pm until closing. VMS is usually open until 9:00-9:30pm at night. We close when then lessons are over. On those days I'll be doing front desk duty for Chris, helping manage the lesson schedules, and tuitions. The best times to stop are at the beginning of the day, or the end of the day. the most active times in the studio are from 3:30 to 7:30pm. During that period things are pretty active at the top, and bottom of the hour when lessons turn over. Parking is always tight in this area, but street parking can be found.
So, the best times to stop and catch me are Wednesdays, and Thursdays. Instruments can be dropped off any day that the Studios are open. The hours are the same on Mondays, and Tuesdays; when Chris is on the front desk. There is always activity in the studios from 3:30 until 9:00pm Monday through Thursday. Saturdays are the only morning the Studios are open: 10:00am to 4:00pm. VMS is currently closed on Fridays, and Sundays. Hope to see you if you need any work done. There still appears to be a demand for what I do, and more guitars out there all the time.
Why do guitars ship with certain assembly anomilies? Why do those bridge saddles face the way they do? Why is the spring shorter on those two lenght adjust screws, and not on the others? How come nobody ships new guitars from the factory with the strings installed correctly? Why is the Fender post tuners the only exception to this statement? I'll have more about this in the back pages.

Vance Music Studios has reached it's Tenth Anniversary, and I'm fortunate to have a platform to work from. Turnaround times are tight right now, and certainly shorter than the big-box guys in town. I hope you'll continue to spread the word that Wright Guitar is alive, and well; and working out of VMS in Lakewood.
The Wright Guitar workshop is located on the premises, so no repairs leave the building until you return to retrieve your instrument. You can phone me directly at 440-799-4713 when I’m not at the storefront. I'm the one answering the phone at the Studios the days I'm at the front desk. Email is always a good alternative, and I am checking it more often.
A link to the Vance Music Studios web site is listed below, or just click on the VMS logo on this page to go to there. On Chris’ web site you’ll find more information about the studios, the roster of teachers, and even a blurb about myself. That’s also where you’ll find additional contact information, and any scheduling updates, as well.
Check out my repair page for info on Mexican Fender Teles, and their idiosyncrasies. It’s interesting how even in this modern age mistakes are made in the manufacturing process.
