"I just love the way my guitar is setup! Played it all evening last night.
I haven't had a guitar so easy to play and sound so nice since my old LesPaul.
You are the best!"
"Hey Scott, I just wanted to tell you this guitar is sounding and playing better than it ever has! You did a great job!"

Repair Fees and Payment
Repair costs vary depending on the situation. For example, a full setup includes nut adjustment, trus rod adjustment, saddle adjustment, intonation adjustment when possible or needed, and we tighten any loose hardware (tuners, output jacks, etc). It also includes re-stringing (strings themselves are extra). A full setup can range from $45 to $75, depending on the instrument. Our setups are based on years of experience, and are very specific to each player - we pay full attention to your playing style when we work on your guitar.
Call or email anytime with your repair questions. And don't worry about diagnostic fees: if we can't fix it, there's no charge!
