MEET OUR TEAM OF EXPERTS
  Here at Stutzman's we like the fact that we're old and non-commission, and so should you. We have a combined total of over 250 years experience working with guitars and stringed instruments! When you buy an instrument from us, you can expect the best advice from grownup professionals who really know their stuff. We invite you to take advantage of our non-commission sales and service expertise!

Who we are:
RICHARD STUTZMAN: Head Luthier

Richard grew up around guitars, (hundreds of them), and began playing as a teenager. His quest for education took him to Roberts Weslyan College where he earned his BS degree, SUNY Brockport for his Masters, and The University of Missouri at Columbia where he worked toward a Doctorate in entomology.

After college Richard taught at several schools, was plant manager for Auburn Vacuform, and came to work in the family business in 1985. Richard is head of our repair department. He has developed into a tremendous asset to our shop and to all who benefit from his expertise.

WARREN P. HEINTZ: Store Manager

Warren is our general sales manager, and heads up our high-end acoustic guitar department. He spent 12 years as a full time musician performing in acoustic music venues across Upstate N.Y., and has a thorough understanding of acoustic instruments, their proper adjustment, and amplification.

Warren joined the Stutzman team in April of 1996 after being a loyal customer for many years.

“I’m proud to be associated with such a unique guitar store. Dave’s reputation for square deals and great customer service is unrivaled.”


MEGAN WRIGHT:  Repairs / Web

Megan is Dave and Margaret Stutzman's daughter and joined the family business in 2005. Megan graduated from Suny Brockport with a fine arts degree. She spends time doing repairs in the workshop and photographing instruments for the web.


MARGARET STUTZMAN: VP

Margaret married into the Stutzman family guitar business in 1977. She is the company bookkeeper has worked in our repair shop, and our American Acoustech factory. Margaret still works in the repair shop and helps out at the front counter.


DAVID STUTZMAN: President Donel Music Corp. /STUTZMAN'S GUITAR CENTER

Dave started working with his father at the age of nine cleaning and assembling banjos. In 1964 he started being paid to work in the family's first retail store. By the age of thirteen he was doing bridge resets on high end Martin guitars, and by sixteen was trained by his father, Eldon Stutzman in most common repairs. "I worked all through high school and college in our shop and found my life's passion."

Today Dave continues to share his love of music and string instruments with customers, helping them find the best instrument to suit their needs.
