The Guitar Workshop was established by Eugene McLoughlin in 1999 after spending 8 years as guitar tech in Musician Inc, a guitar shop in Dublin city centre. He gained an excellent reputation for his work there and decided to establish The Guitar Workshop. The workshop is located close to Dublin City Centre in Portobello.
All aspects of guitar repair and customising are covered from simple repairs, general set-ups, wiring, fretting and complete re-finishing. These are offered on acoustic, electric and bass guitars.
Over the years Eugene has worked on thousands of guitars belonging to everyone from the novice beginner to the experienced professional from the garage to Glastonbury including many household names.
Eugene has played in various groups most of his guitar playing career, performing in various bands, touring live and performing on T.V and radio. He has also been called on to work as guitar tech for tours and live gigs with the likes of The Devlins, The Walls, The Thrills and Rodrigo Y Gabriella. As a result of his experience he is only too well aware of the demands on instruments from their players and their environments. His philosophy on repairing is to get the job done right so there’s one less thing to worry about when gigging or in the studio i.e. “Do it properly or don’t do it at all”.
