Electric Guitar and Bass

Basic set up $50

It’s always best to bring the brand and gauge of strings you like to use. But I do carry Curt Mangan strings. If you’d like to buy them from me, they are $8 for one or $12 for two sets. The basic set up includes adjustment of the truss rod(if needed), setting the action to your preferred height, adjust the action at the nut(if needed), intonation to your specific tuning, clean and oil fret board, light polish of frets, cleaning of the body and neck, tightening all lose bolts and screws, and an overall evaluation of the guitar.

Set up for tremolo $70

Includes everything in the basic set up as well as the proper adjustment of the springs so that the bridge will sit in the correct position.

Set up for floyd rose $80

Includes everything in the basic set up as well as the proper adjustment of the springs so that the bridge will sit in the correct position.

Pick-up install $30. $20 for each additional pick-up.

New pick-ups are always a fun way to give your guitar or bass new life.

One of the more popular pickups I’ve installed is the Seymour Duncan P-Rail. Which when wired correctly, it can be a humbucker, p-90, or single coil pickup. Here is a demo video I made to show the sounds you can get. Click here to watch the video

I am personally a big fan of Seymour Duncan but have installed everything from EMG, Dimarzio, GFS, Kent Armstrong, and other quality sounding pickups.

Rout and install pick-up $80. Each additional pick-up $40.

Switching from passive to active pickups or active to passive pickups $125

Battery Box install $45

Replacement or add on electronics

PLEASE NOTE THAT IF HOLES NEED TO BE DRILLED IT IS AN ADDITIONAL $10 PER HOLE
Prices include the parts.

Electronic evaluation on problematic instruments $30 (this price goes towards the ending cost of the repair)

Output jack $25 for regular mono or stereo, $35 for flush mount

Potentiometer (volume or tone) $25

Push/Pull Potentiometer $40

Fender style pick-up selector $40

Gibson 3-way switch $40

Kill Switch $25

Nut Replacement Custom fitted bone nut $60 .

I may have plastic nuts in the shop that will work that I can sell for cheap, but I will never recommend using plastic. You will lose tone transfer, meaning your guitar will be noticeably quieter if you choose to use plastic. But for the quick and easy fix this may be acceptable for you.

Fret level, crown, and polish $100. This includes the basic set up.

Do your frets have large indents in them or do you hear a constant string buzz? If so, then it is time for this. I file the frets down until the indents are gone and so they are all level with one another. Then use a crowning file to bring back the round shape. Once this is done, I get rid of all the scratches and make them shine like new. If your frets are too low to do this procedure, then it is time for a re-fret.

Re-Fret $225 to $300

We will pick out the best fret wire for your preferred playing style. I pull out all the old frets, level the fret board, clean out the fret slots, and put the new frets in.

Re-glue headstock or neck $60-$100

It is never fun seeing a part of your guitar break off or crack. Depending on the seriousness of the damage, most of the time this can be fixed.

Install new tuning machines $15-$40 (does not include the tuning machines)

New tuning machines can always help a guitar stay in better tune. There are many choices out there. I’d be more than happy to give you my opinion on what is available and what would work best for you.

Pickguard install $30 to $60

Custom Pickguard $Estimate

Bridge Re-Glue $80

If your bridge is coming up even a little bit, you would be amazed at how much tone transfer is missing from your guitar. A re-glue of the bridge will dramatically increase the volume and clarity of an acoustic guitar.

Custom Bridge Replacement $200-$250

Custom Bone Saddle Replacement $60

Most cheaper guitars come with plastic saddles. Replacing this with bone or something similar will once again increase volume and tone transfer.
