Stanislaw worked with Andrzej Derkacz at
Kolstein and the String Shop of Arizona.
He greatly influenced the idea of opening our own
shop and actually made it all happen. With his high
working ethic, integrity and superior workmanship,
Stanislaw was giving all of us a great example to follow.
In 2017 he went on well deserved retirement and moved back to Poland where he enjoys pursuing his hobbies.
