Guitar repair & fretwork

Our goal is to make your guitar into the most incredible guitar you’ve ever played. Here are just some of the services we offer.

The greatness of a guitar is directly tied to the quality of its fretwork. That’s why we’ve invested in the PLEK, high-end guitar CNC technology made in Germany. » Click here to read more about the PLEK. 

No matter your playing style, how long you’ve been playing, or what kind of guitar you play, your instrument will feel better, play more in tune, and yes, even sound better with a setup. » Click here to read more about our setups.

All our wiring is done to the highest possible standards – neat, organized, using lead free solder and high quality components.
