John Bolzenius - Columbus Open Studio & Stage


Welcome to Guitar House Workshop, a home for artists who love music making. Our repair shop and instrument store serves as the studio for myself and Josh Wydick, and as the painting studio/gallery for artist Linda Langhorst. We host a busy lesson program taught by several talented central Ohio musicians. Together, we are a community of artists, musicians, and artisans who consider music making a central part of the human experience. When you park in our lot or next door at the Fundamentals Learning Center, enter through our front door. Our store will be closed to the public during the tour, but feel free to touch base with us if you’d like to make a purchase.

Luthier, builder of fretted instruments



John Bolzenius is a master luthier specializing in the repair and restoration of fretted instruments. He uses his considerable experience as fine craftsman and practicing musician to design and build custom guitars, basses, and ukuleles.


“I approach custom building instruments as an art form. I find real satisfaction in crafting a beautiful object that encourages the personal expression of another artist. As a musician, I know that our instruments must be more than fine looking. They must enhance the eventual owner’s musical experience.”
