Lake Effect Guitars®
After opening PJJ Guitar Repair in the southern California music scene, owner Paul Jollineau has returned to his Michigan roots and is building his own brand, Lake Effect Guitars®. With his shop located in Holland, MI, he also does repairs for local musicians. Parts are on hand and emergency guitar service is available.
The owner is a graduate of the Musicians Institute Guitar Craft Academy in Hollywood, CA. He works on all guitars himself. This is truly a “musician serving musicians” kind of luthier shop.
Our philosophy is to respect the history and character of your guitar and your style of playing it. Prior to the setup or repair of your guitar, we will ask questions about the settings that are important to you. Also, we will review the specific problems that you may have and when they occur. We will explain the guitar repair or setup procedure and answer any further questions.
Communication is important in the guitar repair procedure so we will keep you updated on the progress of your guitar. When you pickup your guitar, you will have the opportunity to plug it in and play it to be sure your repair or setup is completed to your satisfaction.
We service all makes and models of guitars including Fender, Gibson, Ibanez, Peavey, Martin, Taylor, Yamaha, G&L, PRS, Rickenbacker, Carvin, Gretsch, Ovation, Guild, Epiphone, Squier, Schecter, and many more!
