About
Owner/Technician Mark has been active in the world of music and musical instruments since the age of 6.  In addition to building and repairing fretted instruments, he is also a working musician who plays piano, acoustic guitar, tenor and 5-string banjo (3-finger and Clawhammer styles), mandolin, Irish bouzouki, fiddle, Anglo concertina, B/C diatonic accordion, tinwhistle and the Great Highland Bagpipe.  He is currently a member of Kindred Spirits (a local traditional Celtic band) and plays sometimes with the Space Coast Highlanders (Melbourne's premier Scottish Pipe and Drum band).  For several years he played fiddle and mandolin with the Surf Road Project (a bluegrass/jazz band which frequently played on the Florida folk festival circuit). 
Mark worked for nearly 30 years as an Electrical Engineer before moving into the realm of musical instrument repair and construction on a full time basis.  In addition to a lifetime of playing and building a variety of musical instruments (acoustic and electric guitars, banjo, hammered and Appalacian dulcimers, Uilleann Pipes) he is a graduate of the Galloup School of Luthiery in Big Rapids, Michigan, served an 18 month apprenticeship as a fretted instrument repairman to one of the local Luthiers and worked setting up and repairing violin family instruments at a local violin shop.  Mark currently also works part time for a local instrument manufacturer and importer where he has the opportunity to repair and setup more exotic instruments such as Celtic Harps, Dulcimers, Sitars, Balalaikas, Bouzoukis, Ouds, Veenas etc.
When time between repair work allows, Mark continues to build acoustic instruments at the PGW shop.  Mark is currently building 000-12 fret, Parlor and Dreadnought acoustic guitars and Pancake-style mandolins using various woods, along with models incorporating design enhancemets such as ergonomic body geometries, soundports and bevels.  Photos of four customer guitars, the "Wack", "Pickett", "Ritz" and "Slot Head" and an Appalacian dulcimer can be viewed in more detail with the links on the Home page.
