Dave "Doc" Dougherty

Dave has been the Owner and Head Luthier of the Colfax Guitar Shop since 2010. Working as a full-time guitar repairman for over 25 years, Dave spent most of his career servicing musicians of all levels in the Philadelphia area.

OUR HISTORY

IS HUMBLE,

OUR STORY

HONEST.

JUST LIKE OUR WORK.

While much has changed in Denver over the past 20 years,

Our dedication & quality of service has remained.

Originally founded in 1998 and run by well-respected luthier Scott Baxendale, the Colfax Guitar Shop has served the community in every aspect of guitar service imaginable. In 2010, professional luthier Dave Dougherty took on the shop's legacy and has continued to provide the highest levels of service and craftsmanship. Dave expanded the shop, adding two luthiers to its staff, and retail merchandise, from strings, capos, cables, and slides

to a seasoned rotation of restored vintage guitars. 

In addition to guitar repair and restoration, The Colfax Guitar Shop now builds custom, handmade guitars entirely on location in the shop's new lutherie workshop.
