Keywords: Fretted Instruments

Even the finest vintage instruments have to be properly adjusted, set up and repaired to perform at their very best. We are constantly adjusting the fretted instruments that we have for sale so that they fulfill their potential, while still retaining their originality and vintage integrity.

The same skills, attention to detail, and quality that we bring to the most expensive, rare, collectible instruments we also bring to your most humble, but best-loved, guitars, basses, and mandolins. When your instrument requires repair you will want to bring it to a qualified restoration facility that can apprise you of the options available and advise you of the best solution for its particular problem.

The collective experience of our staff spans years of intensive and specialized work for the performing professional and the talented hobbyist. Laid end to end, our workshop personnnel measure 23.17 feet in length and have a combined age of 122 years, which is roughly the equivalent of two very tall, ripened repairmen, working towards their retirement at a well-known guitar manufacturing plant.

Each of our repair people has a particular area of expertise, borne out of the love and playing of the kinds of music they like best.
