I am the amp tech and the builder of this website, not the owner. It was my first website build and some things need clarification. My amp business is completely separate from “Gerhart Guitars”. I am “dougMMMMusic”, and also build custom amps as “DUNAMIS”, and as “Pi Amplification”. Please check the amp pages for more info. And please continue to enjoy Sherlin Gerhart’s world class guitars and guitar repair work. This is his business, and his website. Thanks.
We are pleased to announce the completion of another fine accoustic guitar. It is an Orchestra Model, done in Royal Mahogany, and Sitka Spruce. Please enjoy the pictures featured below, and more on the Gallery page. Then come in and hear and play this fine instrument. Thanks.
Hey folks. I am the Amp repair tech. It has come to my attention that amplifier customers desiring technical information and questions answered, are frequently interupting the guitar shop from the amazing work they do. If you want to discuss amps and guitar wiring, please call or text our Amp Tech, Doug, directly at 602-616-3265. For fine custom guitars and guitar repairs, continue to call (text preferred) Sherlin Gerhart at 602-214-2534. Thanks for helping us do our best for you.
CRAZY GUITAR WIRING JOB IN THE AMP SHOP ……… I took this guitar wiring job for the joy of making art out of it. Check out the pictures on the AMP REPAIR page. Toggle switch is replaced by the 6-way FREEWAY SWITCH. Amazing sounding guitar, and very versatile. It required custom routing and an 8 conductor sheilded cable from the toggle switch. I also made the custom terminal strip, and the polished stainless cover plates.

Yes, we said that before. Come see if it’s the truth. 50 years of electronics. 50 years playing guitar. Trained as a recording engineer. Quick turn around. Custom amp mods and tuning. Good sense of humor. When your amp sounds better, you sound better. Let’s tune it up. If someone else can’t fix it, I can. Thanks.
The new style electric is done and it is amazing. It was planned for tone and playability, but, wow, the results are beyond expectations. Take a look on the GALLERIES page, and come in and play it plugged in to a custom tube amp done by our amp tech.
OK, yes, we are first a luthiery shop making fine guitars. But we wanted to let you know, our amp tech is gaining a reputation for being one of the best boutique builders and amp tuners anywhere. From resurecting fine old tube amps to building and designing new ones from scratch, the tone, touch sensitivity, quiet idle of these amps are equal or better to the rarest most expensive ones. Check our Amp Repair page to learn more.
Is it? Come in and see. In addition to Gerhart Guitars’ master luthier making world class guitars, there is a wonderful assortment of carefully selected fine used and vintage guitars for sale in Guitar Pickers, and an amp and electronic shop with over 50 years experience making tube amps sound amazing. Hope to see you soon.
Well, more changes coming. I will be reshooting all guitar pics due to changing some design elements of the guitars. This has been difficult because usually these guitars are made one at a time. Only a handful of electrics have been made since 2001. we are trying to make a few now of the new design, but nothing is automated so it takes time, especially while running the best guitar repair shop in arizona.
