PRICE LIST

 My BASIC SHOP RATE is $50 Per Hour.
These are average prices for some basic repairs.

 All guitars are different! No two alike! Just like people! Some are easy going and some are more fussy!

Don't despair. I'm sure your baby is very cooperative! Just beware there is a "Can of Worms" surcharge for naughty instruments, that don't know how to get along with their luthiers!

I also charge double if you want to watch!

That said, thanks for visiting my web site. I've had fun organizing all these many pages of self promoting.............. .........stuff!

Email me if your instrument needs help.
Make an appointment to come to my shop. I'll give you directions.
