Mr. Ray Hutto!

Ray Hutto has been working on stringed instruments most of his life. It could be your violin, cello, modern and vintage guitar, mandolin, banjo or even a monster double bass, Ray can repair almost any stringed instrument! When not working on instruments, his passion is to play guitar, which he is very incredible at! Ray also likes to work on vintage automobiles and collect/sell rare movie posters. Ray’s father, John Hutto has built some of the finest and most sought-after mandolins around (Hutto Mandolins). Much of his attention to detail & care really rubbed off on his son Ray. We are very glad to have Ray here at Rock Bottom Music. He has a way of making you smile even if your favorite guitar needs the headstock glued back on!
