About Us

Wooden Wizard Guitars was established by Larry Smoak in Pembroke Pines, Florida on November, 1983. It has since moved to a new location in Fairfax Station, Virginia.

Wooden Wizard Guitars is a Fender authorized gold level service center and has been since 1993. We are also authorized by Buzz Fieten systems for electric guitars as well as Kaman Music. Kaman Music is Ovation, Hamer, and Slammer guitars. Wooden Wizard Guitars is a full service guitar shop that is equipped to perform repairs and build custom instruments. Unfortunately we do not work on amplifiers.
