Notes on Repair:
- For extensive repairs we may charge a $20.00 repair estimate, which will be applied to the repair should you decide to proceed.

- We will take care of your instrument with the utmost care, however, in the unlikely event that string(s) break during the repair we are not liable for their replacement.

In addition to the above common repairs, luthier John Kirk's extensive knowledge and abilities will bring damaged and aged instruments back to their original glory. Contact us for more information and an estimate.
