Guitar repair services in Boston

You may be surprised to learn that many new guitars are not even close to optimal playing condition. A guitar technician can help by making your guitar play comfortably. This is one of the most important things you can do for yourself as a guitar learner.

If you're in need of a guitar tech, we're here to help you out. Just call us at 1 (857) 445-1947 or email us at

In our Boston shop, we offer guitar setup and repair services to get your instrument up and running again.

Here are some of the problems we can help you deal with:

  • String height and action adjustment - lower the strings to make them comfortable to play.
  • String gauge - set the guitar with lighter or softer strings so they're easier to fret.
  • Neck adjustments - straighten the guitar neck to improve playability and reduce issues that may cause the guitar to be noisy.
  • Address fret wear, sharp frets and other fret issues.
  • Fix problems with faulty electronics or string tuning machines.
  • Many others!
