Finish Work:

Quoted on a per job basis. Please contact us for an estimate.

Electronics:

Electronics works is billed by the hour, at $85/hr. Over the years, I have found this to be the fairest way to manage this type of work. Most common elecronics tasks can be completed within one hour at the bench. Things like swapping pickups, pots and switches.Custom wiring, and working in semi-hollow and hollow electric guitars are more time-consuming projects. An estimate will always be given to you before any work is started, and you may contact me if you would like an estimate on electronics work.
