    ★Testimonials

    Tiago. F

    I cannot think of a better value than the bass setup tutorial - Mas came to my place, and worked on one of my basses while walking me through his process, tools, preferences, and specs. My bass never played better, and I got all my questions (setup, curiosities about instrument builds, pickups, etc.) answered by a true legend in the space. Come armed with questions - you will not regret it!

    Mas Hino NYC Guitar Chrysler Solid Creme de Rose

    Mitch Stein - Guitarist​

    The Strat guitar that Mas Hino made for me is amazing!! It was built perfectly to the specs I gave him and the craftsmanship and quality are outstanding!! It is incredibly even up and down the neck and you can hear the tone without even plugging it in!! The playability and tone are ridiculous!!! I won't let anybody work on my guitars except Mas!
