norio came from sadowsky guitars, who build some of the finest instruments in the world. when roger sadowsky decided to move the shop from manhattan to brooklyn, norio decided to stay behind and offer repair/custom shop services to the manhattan crowd.\r
i've had work done by pretty much all the guys in the city, and norio is head and shoulders above the rest.\r
if norio is good enough for john mayer, the black crowes, the stones, and a lot of the working musicians in the city, he's good enough for me.
Pros: easy centralized location, fantastic service, attention to detail
Cons: repair prices might be a tad higher than his competition
