ABOUT OUR REPAIR SHOP
We’re proud to say that Vintage Fret Shop has been a reliable, full-service instrument repair shop for nearly 50 years. There is no job too big, too small, or too meticulous for us, we’ve done it all! And with that kind of experience you can rest easy and assured that your cherished instrument is in good hands.
If you think your instrument needs a tune-up, adjustment or repair give us a call at 603-968-3346. Walk-ins are welcome, but calling ahead is highly recommended if you need same-day service, or if you are in a hurry! We are a small shop, and we’d love to give you our full attention when you stop by, so feel free to make an appointment.
Also, most importantly.. If you’re planning on bringing in multiple instruments for repair all at the same time Please Please Please Call Ahead!!!!
We have more than 47 years’ worth of spare parts. If you need a part for an instrument, please do bring the instrument… even if the part seems so generic you think you shouldn’t need to. It’s amazing how many sizes and types there are of almost everything you might need. Whatever it is, it’s probably here somewhere!
REPAIRS WE SEND OUT
Bows are repaired for us by wonderful repair people who are not on the premises. We’ll call you with an estimate on these repairs.
Disclaimer: As of September 2010, shop labor is billed at sixty dollars per hour, with a free quote and (if you wish) an appraisal of your instrument before repair work is begun. If a competitor can serve you better on a specialized repair problem, we will refer you to his or her shop. If your repair quote exceeds the potential market value of your instrument, we’ll tell you!
If you think your instrument might benefit from adjustment or repair, please bring it with you–we cannot estimate repair jobs by phone. Sometimes work can be done while you wait. String changes, truss rod adjustments, and other small repairs may fall into this category. Of course, calling ahead is recommended if you need same-day service on an instrument.
