Need a repair? Here's the fine print.
I specialize in the repair and restoration of guitars, both acoustic and electric. I also specialize in the repair of banjos, after working for Bishline Banjos for many years. I do not repair amplifiers or pedals.
- ***Updated COVID-19 policy: Please wear a face covering when dropping off and picking up your instrument. If you do not want to wear a mask, we can arrange for you to wait in your car, curbside.***
- I only accept appointments Mon-Sat 1pm-5pm
- I do not work on bowed instruments like violin, viola, cello, etc. Our area has great luthiers that specialize in those instruments. Please support them.
- After a firsthand assessment of your instrument, I can provide a labor estimate. I do my best to stick to the estimate. It is not at all possible to provide an accurate assessment using photos or a verbal description.
- I do not provide estimates on the phone, unless quoting a job that has a standard rate listed on the Repair page.
- I require that you leave your instrument with me to be worked on (for example, you cannot check it in for repair, then bring it back in a week, all the while reserving your place in line). This policy helps me be as efficient as possible, and is fair to all clients.
- Any parts needed must be paid for in advance. In the case of special orders, this may require paying for shipping.
- For jobs estimated at $100 and above, a 50% down payment is required.
- All of my work is backed by a 90 day warranty. This includes setups, as they can change from season to season.
- Any instrument left in the shop for 30 days past the date of *completion* will become the property of Liggett Guitars. I’ll be in touch with the owner of the guitar 3 times within that period, via phone and/or email, to encourage a timely pick up. The first communication will be made on the date of completion.
- Any instrument left in the shop for longer than 7 days beyond the date of *completion* will incur a $20 per day storage fee.
