Rich Diemer began repairing electric guitars, amplifiers, keyboards, and
synthesizers in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, in 1973.
In 1980, Diemer moved his repair shop to Studio City, California, to serve
Los Angeles and its surrounding counties.
With the emergence of the internet, Diemer began writing
repair stories and
as well as sharing
repair resources, here
on BustedGear.com. Eventually, he began selling
for musical instrument gear.
