Let's talk about custom wiring!: If you'd like something non-traditional (not a Strat, Tele, Les Paul, etc.), check with me first. If it's pretty straightforward, I'll take it on. If it's complex and there's not a wiring diagram available, I won't take the job. I don't install super switches, freeway switches, or anything like that. Simple and traditional are my favorite things when it comes to guitar electronics.
Standard Guitar (6-String) or Bass: Includes light cleaning, polishing of frets, conditioning of fretboard, tighten hardware etc $30.00
Classical (Nylon String), Locking Trem, or 12-String Guitar $45.00
Fret level, crown, and polish $180.00
Complete Re-fret $375.00
Make fret ends awesome $60.00
Stainless Steel add $50.00 Binding add $50.00 Pre-1984 Fender add $160.00 Maple fretboards can incur higher costs, as they often require refinishing the fretboard. I contract finish work out to Joe Parker Guitars- the best in the area!
Bridge Reglue $180 Standard pinned steel string $200 Classical, non-pinned bridge, anything other than standard This job can vary in price, because I never know what's going to be exposed once the bridge is off.
Archtop Bridge Replacement/Fit $50.00
Saddle Slot Plug/Recut $90.00
Replacement Acoustic Bridge $300.00+
Brace Reglue Starts at $60.00. This is a job that varies a lot. I can give a more accurate estimate in person.
Crack Repair Generally starts at $60.00.
Broken Headstock I don't have a standard rate, as this is never a standard job.
Neck reset (NOT CURRENTLY TAKING THESE. TOO MANY IN THE QUEUE!) $500 Standard Dovetail Notes: Re-fret is frequently also necessary. Non-standard neck joints will incur higher labor costs. Bolt-on necks will incur less labor than normal. Necks installed before the finish process may require extra work (higher final bill). Neck resets do not include any finish touch up work. Finish is contracted out and billed upon completion.
I don't offer finish work at this time. I happily recommend Joe Parker Guitars for any refinishing, finish repair, etc. He's the best in the area, no question about it!
Head Replacement $100.00 + Parts for Synthetic $130.00 + Parts for calfskin/goatskin Replacement of the head does not include setup beyond tensioning the new head.
Install new bridge $30.00 (Does not include setup)

"This is the most welcoming and helpful shop I've been to in town. I had them ream the bridge of my acoustic guitar for new bridge pins and they did a fantastic job at a very reasonable price. If you want to steer clear of the guitar snobs and chain stores, this is absolutely your place." - Jared, via Google
"Nate took care of my 78 RD like it was a newborn. Stainless steel refret, gutted and replaced electronics with one of the most professional wiring/wire management jobs i've ever seen. He's great and deserves all of your money." - Tyler, via Google
