This is where we really shine. We regularly restore guitars – some over 100 years old, and the improvements we can bring about are incredible.

Guitar Repair BrisbaneThere are very few instruments which are beyond saving. The good news is that older guitars have a lot of potential for great tone because of the aged wood, and the manufacturing techniques employed.

If you have an old instrument which hasn’t been played in years, bring it in, we’d love to see it. We will be able to advise you on its restore-ability, and what you can expect from it once we’ve worked our magic.
