    How long will it take?

    The general wait time for a service is from 4-7 days. Depending on the amount of bookings currently in queue, this time may vary. If parts need to be ordered for your instrument, this will further prolong the waiting time. You can however opt for ‘priority service’ at an additional cost. This means your instrument will jump to the front of the queue and be serviced at the next available time (Please be aware this does not necessarily mean it will be serviced on that day).

    Please note:

    Cracks, dents and structural damage

    If your instrument suffers these kinds of problems, we highly recommend contacting a professional luthier. We do not have the necessary equipment to repair these kinds of problems.

    Please understand we reserve the right to refuse servicing an instrument that has structural damage. If we deem the state of the instrument may affect our ability to service the instrument and potentially further accentuate the issue, we will recommend a professional luthier.

    Electronic repairs

    We do not do repairs for electronic equipment. For faulty amplifiers, speakers, pedals and other electronic devices, we are happy to recommend technicians who are better equipped to repair your product.
