Hello, my name is Gil Divine - yes, Divine, is my birth name. I never intended to work on guitars and amps as a career… it just happened that way. When I was a musician living in Oakland California in the early 90’s, couldn’t afford to take my guitars to a shop, and so I did an apprenticeship to become a luthier. One thing led to another and I became a guitar tech for bands. Over the past decade I have traveled the world as the touring guitar tech for Yo La Tengo, Lucinda Williams, The White Stripes, Cat Power, Super Furry Animals ... And you will know us by the trail of dead, ad nauseum.
