South Austin Guitar Repair

At South Austin Guitar Repair, we have 2 simple rules:

  • Affordable Guitar Repair
  • Fast turnaround time

We offer excellent Austin guitar repair service at low prices without the old-timey luthier ego.

5/3/23 update: In effort to keep turnaround times reasonable, I’m not taking in any new projects until the week of 5/29/23. Gotta catch up on a large backlog of projects.
