A MESSAGE FROM STEVE...

I have been fortunate enough to take multiple classes on guitar repair work with the best in the business, Dan Erlewine! Dan has worked on guitars from the likes of Jerry Garcia, Albert King, Ben Harper, Mike Bloomfield, and more. Dan is also famous for his repair videos and books through Stewart MacDonald (Stewmac). Dan and other professionals showed me what it takes to do the best work possible, and how it's all about precision. I always have a great time, and can't wait to learn more from these guys. My goal is to try to deliver the best quality repair work I can with the best customer satisfaction.

 

Thank you,

Steve Paukovics

Fret Work Price List

Fret Level

Great fret work takes precision, a steady hand, and the right tools ( such as the Erlewine Neck Jig). Our prices are valued in the detail of the work. Fret leveling consists of fret level, crowning, fret ends, buff, and polish. All fret leveling jobs include setup with your choice of strings.

$175

Loose Frets

Before a fret level can be done, frets need to be glued and pressed down. This is to prevent frets from becoming loose after a fret level job is completed.

add $25-40

Replace Nut with Fret Level

Prices vary depending on what shaping may need done to the nut. We have bone, tusq, and blanks. Shaping a new nut from a blank takes a lot longer to fit than a nut from the same specs. Therefore, the price will be a little more. Contact us for pricing.

Please reload

*Price may vary for guitars that are very heavily lacquered around the nut, more difficult to work with, or take more precision to do, depending on the time taken to complete the work and brand of the guitar.
