     Born in Wilmington, Delaware, Bob Tice began building his first guitar while he was in high school.  After high school, he enrolled at the University of Delaware, majoring in electrical engineering.  He went on to receive his Bachelor of Music degree from the New England Conservatory of Music, specializing in classical guitar performance.  But rather than launching a career as a performer, he decided to pursue a life-long interest in building, repairing and restoring stringed instruments.  His hard work, intense study, and skilled craftsmanship coupled with his knowledge of music and technical ability enabled him to open a lutherie shop in Sciota, PA in 1983.  He now employs his daughter Carol and long-time family friend Jon, who enjoy learning the trade under his mentorship.  Bob’s expertise has also been sought after by countless professional and amateur musicians throughout the region. 

     While the bulk of his business is repair work—guitars, violins, cellos, violas, banjos, mandolins, dulcimers, basses, and pianos, to mention a few—he also buys, sells, restores and rents new and used instruments and accessories. Says one of Bob’s customers, “He is very smart and knowledgeable; but what I appreciate most is that he is always considerate and shows an interest in you. Whether you are a young aspiring musician or a world-famous celebrity, he is always kind and responds with your best interests in mind.”
