SERVICES

Standard services

Please note that all prices listed here are really just to provide a general idea for the cost of most jobs. Prices do vary from job to job.

Setup

What goes into a standard setup really varies from place to place, here at BRL Guitarworks our standard setup includes the cleaning and conditioning of frets and fingerboard, tightening of all hardware, electronics testing and cleanup, neck adjustment, action adjustment, nut slot cleanup as well as an overall cleanup of the guitar itself.

All guitars are treated with the same care and attention as what you would find from the makers of fine furniture and luxury car dealerships. In fact, all modern guitars that leave here are also given the same high gloss finish you find in automotive show rooms (we actually use the same stuff šŸ˜‰ )

All setups come with a free consultation to identify any other areas of the guitar that could be improved for enhanced tone or playability.
