We're the Go-To Shop for Novice Guitarists

If you're new to taking care of a guitar you've discovered it can be very intimidating. Similar to car problems, you'll have those moments when you know something is wrong and you need help. We are very approachable and don't expect you to know all of the jargon and how everything works. Call us for a friendly chat about your guitar repair, maintenance needs or mod ideas. We'll guide you to a cost-effective guitar repair or upgrade solution.

Guitar Techs for Mods and Upgrades

Have you reached a point where you want better sound without forking over a ton of cash for a premium guitar? The answer is often changing out low-end components such as pickups, pots, or input jack. Sometimes it's fret work or conductive shielding to eliminate unwanted buzzing. Dig deeper and you may discover a new string nut or trem block may be the answer. Get with us and let's explore the possibilities to take your guitar to a higher level of playability.

Call us for your guitar service needs! We guarantee you'll love what we do for you!
