Jun looks to be in better shape now and at least he now has some kind of workshop indoors.

laking improvement ni papa jun sa mga pics ah... Parang buff na buff and bumata itsura nya...

Also, yung workplace nya has really improved. Kudos to sir Jun...

alala ko pa noon, wala pang philmusic, or kahit livebands... iilan pa lng ang nakakakilala kay Mang Jun... First time, I brought a guitar para pasetup, sa kalye pa lng sya gumagawa.. biruan pa nga nun e kaya "roadtone" ang name kasi sa kalsada sya nagawa... Pero major props to the man... I dont know if its his "magic ruler" or his hands pero he did the best intonation setup sa Stratty ko... save the axe from being sold....

Superb customer service, kaya nagtawa na lng ako dun sa nagpost na isang taon yung guitar bago magawa...pamatay yun hehehe :evil: :evil:

cguradong may kwento yun kaya tumagal ng isang taon na sana ishare dito...

Yeah man, aircon pa! at may PC na rin sa loob, pero di niya daw ginagamit. Ambait pa rin Sir Jun. Sobrang dali kausap. Major renovation ginawa sa shop. Pero hirap pa rin maghanap ng parking sa area nila! Hehe... :-D

kaw na lang kaya pumunta bro, Flying Bee mo yun e..  :evil: :evil:akalain mo sa loob ng 9 na buwan di mo man lang pinuntahan yung guitar mo kahit minsan? Dinaan mo lang sa text at tawag?

Kung ako naman kay mang jun, kukulitin din kita or sasabihin ko harap-harapan kung bakit umabot ng ganong katagal. Kung di ka satisfied sa reasons nya, kadali naman ipull-out yung guitar di ba?

hmmm im sure theres a good reason why di pa napapasaiyo ung guitar sir feraskulio. pero we will never really know if someone doesnt ask diba. bukas baka dumaan ako kay mang jun. gonna have my strat chekd up. if pwede aantayin ko na dun matapos. pero if not, i might call him up after a 3 days, and then after that. Baka busy din kasi si Mang Jun and he might forget things unintentionally. But no harm done. Basta maayos nagawa. I remember once i had my older strat refretted and i needed it badly. So i brought it to him and said that i needed it RUSH talaga. so after every two or 3 days i checked up on it and after 8days narefret na, with intonation, fret level and neck adjusted.

I've never been to a luthier where I did not experience bad customer service. I've tried all 3 well known ones, including Jun. But I never held anything against them. With Jun, I guess being friends with him helps, I can talk to him about it.

Your guitar is your responsibility. Whining in here will not get you results. Puntahan mo and be upfront with your demands. Madali naman sya kausap eh.

I think Mang Jun has a reason kung bakit na-delay yung paggawa sa guitar. Tsaka siguro kailangan din kulitin. Ako kasi sometimes, I have guitars na inaabot din ng buwan sa kanya e ok lang naman sa akin yun kasi nasanay na ako na he's taking his time para magawa ng maayos yung mga guitars. Minsan kinukulit ko din. Ok lang naman sa kanya yun.

Dinaan mo lang sa text at tawag?  Di pa nga daw gawa e, ano mapapala ko kung puntahan ko dun? Titigan ko? Waste of money and time...May ginagamit nman akong ibang gitara...

Kung ako naman kay mang jun, kukulitin din kita or sasabihin ko harap-harapan kung bakit umabot ng ganong katagal. Kung di ka satisfied sa reasons nya, kadali naman ipull-out yung guitar di ba? Sinasabi nman nya yung reason, bottomline di pa gawa, wala glue or something, so again no point in coming...

I've never been to a luthier where I did not experience bad customer service. I've tried all 3 well known ones, including Jun. But I never held anything against them. With Jun, I guess being friends with him helps, I can talk to him about it.

Your guitar is your responsibility. Whining in here will not get you results. Puntahan mo and be upfront with your demands. Madali naman sya kausap eh. ---- Yes responsibility ko yun, mahal kaya yun, pagawa at yung mismong gitara.  And for the record nobody's whining, although I think you're all whining how i handle the situation....  :-D 

yupyup! mas maganda siya yung kausapin ng harapan. mabait naman si mang jun.  Never said he wasn't, mabait, that is...

Again, wag high blood, gitara ko nga yung andun di nman ako galit... Sinasabi ko lang yung katotohanan na minsan may mga luthier na matagal gumawa lalo na kung major repair... Ayus to pagbalik ko dun either sikat na ko or ban nako....  :-D And for the record, bayad na ko...

Ayus may thread si Mr. Jun Castro!  I hope this thread serves as a good reference for one of the best luthiers we have in the country. :D

I'm one of the satisfied customers ni Mang Jun.  Lahat ng gitara ko (electric or acoustic), sya nag setup.  Napila din ako pag nagpapagawa, matagal man sulit pa din.  Worth every peso I spent ksi laging pulido pag may pinagawa ako. 

Ang pinaka gusto ko kay Mang Jun ay yung personalized customer service na binibigay nya sa mga customers.  I think most of you also experienced this. Andyan yung may kwentuhang matagal, may inuman, may suggestion kung san ka mas makatipid, may text pag tapos na gitara mo or may problema pang iba, madali makipag set ng appointment, etc.  Kya naman laging may regalo tong si Jun tuwing Pasko, di nawawala sa listahan ko hehehe

Ngayon nasa malayong lugar ako at may problema ang acoustic ko.  Kung hindi lang mahal ang pamasahe sa eroplano, umuwi na ako kahit over the weekend para paayos lang gitara ko.  Mahirap mawalan ng luthier na maasahan at mapagkakatiwalaan.  May luthier man dito kung san ako naroroon, baka mahirapan maabot yung serbisyo ni Jun.

To put it simply, I'm one of the loyal customers. _\m/

Wala naman palang problema eh.. Siguro next time, be clear about it. Iba kasi tono nung pagkakapost mo eh. It actually sounded like you're whining. Nang-utos ka pa.

So... everybody happy??  :-)

pre kahit mga tatlong oras man lang ng buhay mo or kahit isang araw na, hindi mo kayang ibigay para mapuntahan mo yung gitara mo para macheck mismo or mabawi man lang? if you really care about your guitar gagawan mo ng paraan. kung ginagawan mo na ng paraan pero wala padin, shmpre better kung puntahan mo na talaga. may sundays naman ata diba?  :-)

Saw him featured in TV Patrol, Cesar Montano always mentions him in Singing Bee. That is respect earned from other people.
