Moze Guitars

Moze Mossay was given a guitar as a gift from his father when he was a kid and he fell in love with the instrument. Moze sought to understand all elements of the guitar and soon found himself taking the instrument apart and putting it back together. Over the years, he studied the many instruments he repaired to learn what made each make and model unique in feel and sound. American Dream, a guitar shop in San Diego, hired Moze in the early 1970s. In 1973, he opened his own repair shop, which has grown into a retail store, Moze Guitars in Spring Valley, California. To this day, Moze enjoys the process of repairing an instrument and placing it back in the hands of the owner so they can continue their own passion of making music.
