OTHER REPAIRS

We work with several local repairers to offer a variety of professional repair services for guitars and basses that include but are not limited to:

  • Wiring and electronic work (jack, pot, and pickup replacements, rewiring etc.)
  • Pickup installation (including routing if required)
  • Fret dresses and refrets
  • New nut and saddle cuts and fittings
  • Structural work (broken necks, cracks, re-gluing bridges and bracing etc.)

 

Amp Repairs

Our repairers are also experienced with amps and can provide various repairs and services, including re-tubing.

 

Cost, Quotes & Wait Times

The costs of repairs are assessed on a case-by-case basis and usually require leaving the instrument or amp with us for up to 10 business days until our repairer can take a look at it, after which we will contact you with your quote and you can decide if you would like to go ahead with it.

You will be required to pay the minimum bench fee ($75) when you leave your guitar or amp with us for a quote - this is to cover labour costs to examine and isolate the faults. If you decide to go ahead with the repair, the $75 bench fee will be deducted from your total bill upon payment.

 

Repairs can take anywhere from a few days to a few weeks or even longer depending on what the problem is (structural work, especially where gluing is involved, usually takes the longest).

 

Pedal & Pro Audio Repairs

Unfortunately at this stage we do not repair effect pedals or pro audio equipment. We recommend Earthling Designs at Darlinghurst for these repairs.
