If you have never had a full setup done on your instrument, then you probably working a lot harder than you need to when playing.  A setup is probably the single investment that everyone should make.  It will make even an inexpensive instrument play better, which means more fun making music!

And sometimes bad things happen.  I can help with anything from a broken headstock, a refret, new nut or saddle, installing a pickup, cracked side or top. Price varies based on the complexity of the job.  Basic prices are listed below.

Basics Price List:

  • Acoustic Setup (includes: restring (bring your own strings), adjust neck relief, set string height (nut and saddle), check intonation, minor fret leveling, tighten screws and tuners, clean/polish/oil) - $75

    • Add New Bone Nut - $50​

    • Add New Bone Saddle - $40

    • Add Full Fret Dress - $70
