More About Me

Chet Bishop has been building and repairing violin-family instruments for fifteen years. He works out of his home near Forest Grove, Oregon.

Like most luthiers, he would rather specialize in the making of new instruments (violin, viola, cello, double bass, five string instruments), but repairs are part of the job, as well, and he enjoys seeing a damaged or dead instrument come back to life and sing again.

He has repaired instruments that were in pieces (from a simple missing corner to a broken off scroll or neck), as well as those simply needing minor repairs such as an open seam re-glued, and adjustments, such as a soundpost or bridge.

Nothing too small or too large. (YES we repair double basses, too!)


Chet has a new website at where you can see all his five string instruments including cellos and a bass. - Chet Bishop
