Glenn was born in New York, moved to Nova Scotia, and at age 19, he attended Guitar Research and Design Center with guitar builder Charles Fox. In 1985, Glenn moved to Burlington, Vermont, where he started Schoales Guitars, a repair and custom building shop, which he owned for 14 years. As his business grew, he began training apprentices for high school work study programs. He attended the NAMM Show with Schoales Guitars in 1990. In 1998, he moved to Nashville to work for Gibson Custom shop in the Pro Shop. He repaired artist's guitars, built custom "art guitars," designed and built NAMM Show guitars and specialized in custom inlay. In 2005 Glenn started working with Gruhn Guitars in Nashville and he comes to us with over 30 years of experience. He moved to Colorado in 2011 to work at the Pickin' Parlor, and loves to go skiing or golfing on his days off. He is also new to the local gold panning and gems/minerals scene.
Glenn is available at the shop Monday through Friday
Micah has been repairing and customizing stringed instruments for more than 22 years. He specializes in acoustic and electric instruments like Guitar, Mandolin, Banjo and world instruments, as well as Baritone Guitar, Mandola, Violin, Cello, Upright Bass, and Ukulele. His main goal is to make your instrument play its best, whether that means a simple setup or a neck reset and full restoration. His favorite instruments to work on range from the simplest of sweet sounding acoustic guitars, to restoring vintage parlor guitars, to the more avant garde - like a 9 string acoustic-electric-hybrid-guit-olin-ulele (or what have you). Currently working here at the Olde Town repair shop with Luthier Glenn Schoales, he has also worked with Edward Dick of EVD String Instruments, John Baxendale at Colorado Guitar Company, and the Breedlove Guitar Company.
Micah is available at the shop Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday
