Owner Chris Eudy started as an apprentice back in 1996 under "Guitar Bob Egan" of Bob’s Guitar Service. In 1997 he bought the company and it became Third Coast Guitar Service. By now he’s seen just about everything related to guitar repair, and done most of it too. Although a small-business owner must wear many hats, spending much of his time with customers and the business side of things, Chris still gets his hands dirty nearly every day, staying right on top of what’s going on in the repair world. At night, he sometimes takes his guitar to town to play the rock music with his bands Gooey and Nubile Thangs.
