'It's like a whole new guitar. The rewiring they did actually quieted the buzzing of the guitar some and also added some new features (a series/parallel switch for anyone that cares) giving new tonal possibilities to my favorite axe. I can't say enough good things about the guys in the service dept. They are top notch. I know if I have any issues I can bring the guitar back and we'll get them sorted.'
B.W., CHICAGO, IL
'I am most impressed with the repair service. I've taken over a dozen guitars there for re-setting, re-stringing or re-habbing. A recent doubleneck purchase was given 4 new pickups at the recommendation of the staff, and they sound fantastic. A bass repair required an innovative fabrication that solved a serious problem without damaging the vintage quality of the instrument.'
KARL M., NEW LENOX, IL
'I had a question for the repair guys in the basement level and they were awesome. I have a vintage instrument that I picked up as an investment and the repair guy was just enthused to talk shop and was not trying to get me to have them do any of the work.'
