Repairs

Maintain, Upgrade, Fix, or Customize

We also have a comprehensive and ever growing part department.  We stock both replacement parts and novelty parts for customizing your instrument.  Of course, we can order just about anything that we don’t happen to have in stock.

Guitar and Stringed Instrument Repairs

All guitar and other stringed instrument repairs are done on site by one of our two professional repair technicians, Joel and Chris.  Repair turnaround times are almost always within a week, but we are able to rush jobs for pros with demanding schedules or anyone with an urgent need.  Our pricing is incredibly reasonable, especially for the quality of work that is being done.

Good, Fast, Cheap… pick only two?!?!

In America, with service and labor jobs, it’s a given that between good, fast, and cheap, you’ll get any two.  You can have it done well and right on time, but it will cost you… or if you want it to be great, but you don’t have a lot of dough to commit to it, you’ll wait weeks…if not months.  And fast jobs done cheap are rarely good.  In defiance of all logic, we’re doing our best to give you all three.

What is a Setup?

Over time humidity changes, string tension and just wood being wood can bring instruments out of alignment.  The setup fixes this with adjustments to the neck, saddle, nut, or bridge in order to ensure that the string height is to specification.  The result is a guitar (banjo, violin, etc.) that is easily and comfortably playable, that stays in tune better, with all notes ringing true.  At Rocktown Music setups also include guitar polishing, fretboard reconditioning, fret polishing, and inspection of the instrument for issues that may require further attention.  Regular setups improve playability and extend the life of the instrument.
