Guitar Repair and Servicing

At Adirondack Guitar, we take great pride in our ability to service and repair guitars, basses and other fretted instruments.  In our store, our skilled technicians assess and repair based on your requests.  We repair both right-handed and left-handed guitars and basses, banjos, mandolins and other gear.  From small to large repairs, you can be confident that we'll get you playing better than ever with fast turnaround.  We also set up every purchased guitar for free before we send it.

Services Offered

Please find our example repair pricelist for our services.  Since every guitar and bass is unique, we like to give a guideline but prefer to discuss the repair before giving a final price.  All costs are subject to actual inspection, we highly recommend calling before stopping in or shipping your instruments so we can talk through what is needed.
