Expert Service

Guitar Czar prides itself on expert luthier work and repairs on guitars and basses. Our repair techs have over 70 years of combined experience!  In fact, some people won't let anyone else touch their instruments. We are an authorized repair shop for many top guitar brands.

Prices and times subject to change. The average, basic setup takes 1-2 weeks. Larger repairs and service requests are usually completed within 1.5-6 weeks* and are done in order of receipt of the instrument; we do not take reservations. Simple service items like restrings are usually done by the end of the next business day*. Rush orders can be done for $25 more. Rush orders for regular setups are promised by the end of the next business day*. We are happy to tune any guitar for free while you wait.
*repair times may take longer depending on work load.

We do not do amp repair. We recommend Nick Kiahtipes at, or Mike Christensen at House of Guitars.
