HIGHLANDS RANCH GUITAR REPAIR

Upfront Pricing and Great Service

I work out of my basement in my home, so I'm able to keep my prices competitive.

IT'S BEST TO CALL FIRST! I'm almost always working in my basement shop, but occasionally I'm out.

Set-up





A set up is done generally when you get a new guitar or it’s been a while since any maintenance. Guitars generally don't like to sit in a closet a lone for years. If you haven't played an instrument in years, it probably needs a set-up.

Set up can also address problems like fret buzz.

A set up includes: Truss rod adjustment, nut and saddle string height, intonation setting, fret board lemon oiling (rosewood and ebony only), light fret polish, light cleaning and polishing of body and neck,  general inspection, re-string and tune.

Please bring your own strings. I do carry a few sets, but due to the diverse amount of strings, I ususally have 1 brand of acoustic and 1 brand of electrics

Electric and Acoustic guitars and bass ( up to 6 strings) .............$50
Electrics with floating bridge..................$100
12 string acoustic/electric............................$80

Fretwork





Fretwork is needed when you hear buzzing or a dead spot (meaning you can hear any notes) or due to damage.

If there dents or worn down spots on a fret, it needs to be replaced.

Dress fret ends (no set-up)..............................$20
Local fret dress (high frets-body hump) + set-up.......$60
Complete fret dress (level, crown, and buff) + set-up...$100
Partial re-fret.........................$10 per fret + fret dress
Re-fret Rosewood or Ebony .............$285
Re-fret (bound FB-unfinished)..........................$285

Nuts and Saddles

Cut, fit, slot, and polish Corian.  Prices include set-up.

Corian is a composite material and I prefer it to bone. However, if you insist upon bone, I can make bone pieces.

6 string guitar............................................$50
12 string guitar...........................................$99
Acoustic saddle..........................................$30



Structural Repairs

Inspection required.

Colorado is known for cracks in acoustic tops, which can be repaired. The repairs are not always 100% cosmetic, meaning you may see some remains of the crack, but structurally it will be fine. It usually takes about 3 or 4 days because the guitar need to be slowly humidified to take care of the crack.

Generally if all that is needed is a repair with no cosmetic work, aprox $65
