My name’s Bobby Davis, a.k.a. “The Guitar Answer Guy”–which is something someone called me during a casual conversation many years ago. I never quite forgot that comment, and dusted-off the name years later to start this blog.
As a teen, my one and only guitar was severely damaged by a music store when I took it in for a basic setup. Worse, the store denied all responsibility and refused to fix the damage. I was devastated, and that’s the day I realized I needed to learn to do as much of my own guitar work as possible. Using books and videos, I eventually got good enough that I ran a small guitar tech business for 2 years while in the military. Through it all, I discovered that I love working on guitars–as much as I love playing them.
I’m an Air Force veteran who now lives with two very lovely ladies: my girlfriend Abigail and our rescued ex-racing greyhound Truly (pictured, note the red boots).
If you don’t have any guitarist friends you can chat with and trust to give you guitar advice, well, now you “know a guy.” You can contact me anytime with your guitar questions and concerns. I usually respond within 48 hours.
If you’re simply curious about what guitars, gear, and accessories I use, you can see all that on my Personal Guitars & Gear page.
