Founder and Senior Editor
My name is Steve Blundon, primary author, master guitar tech and senior editor of GuitarNiche. I sincerely hope you find this site useful.
How GuitarNiche Started
Around 1991, a good friend of mine who worked at a small music store in Brantford Ontario gave me a crumpled up list of a dozen students he couldn’t serve anymore. A couple of days later I started working at that wonderful mom and pop establishment.
The rest as they say, is history.
That list turned into over sixty students a week, and hundreds of satisfied guitar service clients.
By April of 2000, the store owners retired giving me the opportunity to hang my own shingle – I was on my own in the music business trenches.
That business grew and prospered as Jammit Music for many years. Then things changed: external pressures, life events etc, until finally I made the decision to close the doors in 2015.
Realizing there was an opportunity to essentially provide the same services in digital form, GuitarNiche was created; a site designed to help eliminate the roadblocks stopping players from getting the most out of their guitar experience, and cultivate their own personal expression through unique printed products.
