Musicians can find a little piece of heaven tucked in a studio in Windham. There, Gerhards Guitarworks offers everything from handcrafted guitars to strings and drumsticks.
Robert “Cue” and Alana Gerhards moved from Poughkeepsie a year ago with a handful of staff specializing in finishing and refinishing all forms of acoustic and electric stringed instruments, in addition to offering such tech services as set-ups, repairs, neck resets and bridgework. They also keep a complete line of retail products on hand.
Alana’s talents in graphic design mix with Cue’s experience as a long-time luthier, while they both bring musicianship and a love of woodworking to their craft.
