 Fret repair is a huge duty to us that takes patience in the details. Luckily, we have generations of experience under our belt so this is something we take hands on. When we take in your guitar for any fret work we clean and level the guitar to make sure you can say goodbye to any buzzing.

More than just a re-fret.

Our fret work with guitar repairs includes re-fretting, fret level crown and polish. We work on vintage and modern instruments. Our luthier’s use essential tools such as a fretting hammer, specialized pliers, and a radius block to re-fret and re-level the fingerboard.

Attention to details.

We start off by removing the frets carefully as the first step in re-fretting your instrument. Then adjust the truss rod to neutral setting and level the fingerboard in preparation to install the new frets.

We also include a full guitar setup, which we then add on the crown and polish the instrument with our family signature polish. Once completed, we’ll do one last look over to ensure sure everything is perfect for you to pick up. 

*Some re-fret repair may include finish touch up especially when there is neck binding.

“This family owned business is very honest, takes allot of pride and integrity in their craft and it shows big time in their awesome work! They did an awesome job on a fret job for my Gibson flying V. This family recently did awesome work on a couple of my guitars at an extremely affordable price and got my guitars ready for show in good timing! Highly recommended!”

“Absolute best!!!! Great customer service awesome and they're the only people I let touch my guitars before I tour. The prices are right and they are honorable people. That's hard to find in the shop these days. They really work well with the working pro musicians because they know about urgency and they will make sure that you're ready to go on time. They're simply the best.”

“Excellent work on my old 6 string friend! The re-fret and neck refinishing was done to a very high standard, truly over-the-top beautiful workmanship. I can't say enough good things about this shop, and Kent's craftsmanship. Nice people to work with and reasonable prices too. If you are in search of best quality luthier, this is the place to go!”
