Average Guitar Repair Time is 7-10 Days. Some jobs will require more time depending on gluing, dring, and other factors.

Please note: these prices are estimates only, and our staff members are not the luthiers who will handle the repair. Due to the individuality of each job, estimates may vary slightly from your quote.

If costs will exceed the estimate, the customer will be contacted before any work is started. We will install customer-provided parts but will not be responsible for them.

We also highly recommend only leaving guitars for repair with a case – gig bags may be purchased inexpensively if necessary, and we will not be responsible for any marks, scratches or blemishes that result from leaving a guitar without a case. All above prices do include materials.

Our goal at JC Music is to make sure that your guitar is in perfect playing condition. With extensive training and experience, our master guitar luthiers will professionally repair any fretted instrument.

Bridge work, crack repairs, neck adjustments, fret filing, or any degree of guitar repair will be completed at a reasonable rate and in very reasonable time. Our luthiers use only the highest quality tools and supplies when repairing any fretted instrument, including your most delicate prized possession. We not only specialize in guitar repairs, but we are well known throughout Connecticut and New England for our top quality autoharp, mandolin and banjo repairs.

General guitar repair work, such as restringing, tuning, and polishing, are all done on-site while you wait. For any larger repairs, we will provide you with a firm estimate and most repairs are completed in 10-14 days. Once guitar repairs are completed, JC Music will quickly give you a call to let you know. We hope you take advantage of our reasonable rates and use our professional services at JC Music for all of your guitar repair, bass guitar repair, and repair of any other fretted instrument.
