Our Guitar Technicians
Paul Iverson, Guitar Technician
Paul has been relied on by musicians in Western Canada for the last 35 years, to keep their guitars, basses, mandolins and other stringed instruments in top playing condition, whether it be general setups and fret work, upgrades, modifications or custom building.
Although the majority of his clients are “just regular people with a love of music and their instruments”, he does have notables such as Aerosmith, Sara McLaughlin, Jimmy Page and Bon Jovi, as well as local favorites like Marianas Trench and Spirit of the West as some of his past clients.
Paul has also had an ambitious career as a musician before crossing over to his present work full time, having played with Bryan Adams, a gold album as a member of Strange Advance, as well as playing on the international hit “Hero” by Chad Kroeger of Nickelback. Paul has always maintained that the fact he has been a player for the past 40 years has given him an advantage as to knowing when a guitar “feels right”
