Guitar Setups and Repair

Did you know that Mint Music offers full service guitar setup and repairs for acoustic and electric guitars, basses, ukuleles and mandolins at our 116 Bond Street Location. These services are performed by our very own highly experienced guitar setup and repair technicians offering amazing service and same day turnaround times! As you may know all instruments need regular maintenance and service to remain in top playing condition. With guitar, basses and other stringed instruments it is even more critical and these instruments should be serviced at least twice a year. For those not familiar with why guitar setups are so important please check out our blog entitled “Why Every Guitar Needs Their Bi-Annual Setup.”

Our in-person guitar setup and repair technicians will be at our 116 Bond Street location at the following dates and times during the summer months. For simple setups and repairs we offer same day service but you must RSVP in advance and the first 4 people to do so will get their guitar by the end of the technician’s shift. Please remember we must receive payment in full before you take your guitar home. You can also drop your guitar off at the school Monday to Friday from the hours of 10 AM – 8:30 PM but do phone ahead to let us know you are coming so we know when to expect you. Our guitar technician will look at your guitar and begin work on it the next day he/she is in.
