We offer service and repairs for almost any stringed instrument. If you have any questions, feel free to contact our repair staff and they will be more than happy to help! Above pricing is generalized, and your particular needs may not be reflected. For instance, a typical level crown and polish of frets won't require the replacement of the nut, but it may require the nut to be adjusted, and at that point a setup is recommended to ensure intonation and desired playability. A re-fret will require a new nut, and also a setup. Bundled pricing is available, where applicable. Some types of guitars require more
labor to repair (semi-hollow, etc.,) but we will inform you in advance if your guitar falls under that category. Come in and see the difference at
Pete's Music!
