Business Overview

Andries returned from America where he lived and worked while studying to become a qualified Luthier. Before going to America, Andries studied towards a diploma in Woodwork, and worked as a Woodwork Teacher where he fine tuned his knowledge and craft. Andries and his repair shop is well known in the music industry due to his extensive knowledge of all string instruments, as well as his sterling service and faster-than-anyone-else turn around times. He takes pride in a job well done and charges reasonable prices. Since he’s been involved in repair work for the last 18 years, he has become a household name to many well known South African Artists, and his wall boasts numerous thank you notes from industry celebrities such as Juanita Du Plessis and Theuns Jordaan to mention a few. He recently started his own line of guitars, known as Forster Customs, which he hand-builds on order.
