My availability is limited based on the repair load. This helps us stay on schedule. I also limit repairs to ensure time for building operations.
I only work on FRETTED STRING INSTRUMENTS... mandolins, banjos, basses, guitars, etc. I do not work on amps, violins, orchestral brass or woodwinds.
Setups and easy jobs take 1-2 weeks. Structural repair work is usually 3-5 weeks. Restoration jobs can take a few months or longer. Visit the repair page for more info.
I do not offer rush jobs anymore. Occasionally it's possible with setup work.
Yes! I'm happy to do your initial assessment by video chat. I cannot make official quotes on screen, but it's a great way to get a rough estimate and start the conversation. I usually use Google Meet for these appointments. Select this option when scheduling.
Occasionally I will accept instrument shipped for repairs or modifications. The added cost of shipping both ways is about $180. We only recommend this for guitars and jobs worth the added expense.
