We’re happy to work on other instruments, (like dulcimers, upright basses, ukuleles, and the rest) as well. More intensive work, like neck sets; re-fret jobs; crack and finish repair; electronic and pickup work; is available at rates that range from $30-$60 hour depending on the complexity of the work.

The best thing to do is bring your instrument in, let us evaluate the job and provide you with an estimate for the work.
