David ‘Doc’ Pittillo—formal name: the Guitar Doctor—would likely get an honorary PhD if Guitarology was actually a course of study at an accredited academic institution.-(Orange County Register)
Doc started at his craft as an apprentice for a guy who originally designed guidance systems for Apollo. He changed careers from a model-builder to a guitar builder. Doc apprenticed for him for five years before starting his own business.
Since the let 60s Doc has been working his magic repairing guitars in Orange County. As a player he knows the “feel” of a great guitar and how to get yours into it’s greatest shape.
Doc has also been designing guitars for years. “My thing is semi-hollow electric guitars that are very linear at high volumes and very tone-y like a lot of the old guitars people are paying huge dollars for.”
I’ve been taking my guitars to Doc for years now. Electric, acoustic, he gets it all right.
