General Guitar Repair
Every guitar is different, and so is every repair. Sometimes what a customer thinks is a simple fix can be a very involved process involving rare or expensive parts and lots of man-hours. Sometimes it’s the opposite: you come in thinking it’s going to cost $100 to fix your problem and we get it done for almost nothing! The price list below should give you a general idea of what it will cost to fix normal problems, wear and tear, and accidental damage to a guitar or bass. Many jobs require us to have the guitar in hand in order to give you a proper estimate, so please note that some of these prices may vary for individual instruments.
For an exact quote, please bring your instrument into the shop for an estimate.
