It's Fmuggy outside! Added a bunch new designs to the Gear page including our new Guitar Pick Logo and Chibson just because. Whether you are pro or con, a Chibson Tee should start a lively conversation among other players. Go take a look. Cafepress prices are still a little high but if you let us know what you like we can put an order in to save you on shipping. Thanks for your continued loyalty.

New Year New Additions
The Repair Shop is running smoothly and the store is looking pretty good. Come on in and help yourself to something from the coffee bar.
We have partnered with Electric Sheep Music LTD. and have a few guitars, amps, and pedals for sale. Very soon we will offer Consignment services!
We are also excited to now offer BeccasBlues Jewelry. The silver and copper picks are really cool. Music themed Necklaces, Braclets, Rings, Earrings, and Keychains. Lots of pretty stuff to take home to the wife, after you've bought that twelfth guitar ;)

Sam Ash Music
Springdale, Ohio

We are sad to announce that after 12 years Dmara Guitar Repair will be leaving Sam Ash Music. Simply put, Doug is a craftsman and doesn't fit the corporate mold. Doug doesn't believe in the "turn a wrench and call it done" Counter Tech Mentality. Doug is a Luthier and perfectionist. He takes his time with a repair because he wants it done right. Our loyal customers are musicians who know the difference.
We hate leaving our friends at Sam Ash. They've become family. The decision was based on Sam Ash corporate not the local store. So buy your next guitar at Sam Ash then bring it to Doug in Sharonville to have it setup by a professional.
It's been a blast. Thanks guys.

Dmara Guitar Repair
Doug Frye - Luthier 


My name is Doug Frye. I'm a professional luthier with over 20 years experience and owner of Dmara Guitars. My guitar repair shop offers repair services ranging from restring to restore, handmade guitars and everything in-between. Acoustic guitar repair and Electric guitar repair are my specialty but I can repair any stringed instrument.



We have had enough people tell us, we made it our slogan. To our loyal customers we thank you for returning over the years. To our potential new customers, come on in and see why we are better than your average counter tech. Doug really does know what he's talking about and is willing to share. We do this for a living. We live and breathe guitars. Its the same obsession and passion as a collector but we can bring one back from the dead or make a new one play better than from factory.
