Guitar Repair and Maintenance
Guitar work keeps us busy. We have technicians that work around the clock to keep up with the never-ending demand. You should figure an average rate of $60/hr.
Most common repairs:
Instrument Restring - When you buy the strings from us, a guitar restring only costs $5. Twelve string guitars cost $10.
Output Jack Replacement - Typically a $20 charge. The price of the Switchcraft jack is often included in that rate.
Wiring - We often assist in obtaining schematics and double-checking to make sure the job gets done right.
Pickup Replacement - Fee is typically reduced when the pickup is purchased from us
Ozone Machine - As Humboldt County is on the coast, moldy cases and instruments are a big problem. Using an ozone machine and other techniques, we are able to get rid of any weird smells your guitar case or instrument have picked up. Typical Ozone fee is $20.
While these are the most commonly required repairs, we are available for other work. Contact Nick for a quote (707) 445-3155 or firstname.lastname@example.org
