Hello World! Meet Lock…

The first time I met Lock, I knew he would be a perfect fit for the repair shop here at Dave’s. A spot previously held by Sig Lombardi who, being Italian, had a genetic predisposition to venture off and study the fine art of the Violin. We thank Sig for his fine work.
It’s a position not everyone is cut out for. Work of this nature requires a myriad of talents that take a life time to develop. Patience, perseverance, attention to minute detail, a love of guitars, music and the ability to improvise when the situation demands, as it so often does. Not only does Lock excel in all the aforementioned but he brings a certain calm, coolness and modesty to the environment that is crucial when things get hectic. Being that said, I didn’t think it would be appropriate to ask him to write is own biography so I thought I would take the liberty.
Noritsugu Lockhart, or “Lock” as he goes by, hails from Tokyo, Japan where he spent the first 20 or so years of his life. He’s an amazing artist, speaks Japanese, kills it on the guitar and has the ability to sit in one place for hours and focus on one tiny thing until he has it down perfectly. Locks skills as an artist lend themselves beautifully to so many things that we do in the repair shop. Give him an old part, some dyes, pigments, stains, and he will make a new part old that even I have trouble distinguishing from the original.
All of us here at Dave’s are really lucky to have Lock on board. World Meet Lock.
-Carl Meine
