Our prices are at and almost all below The Guitar Blue Book repair pricing guide (we have a copy displayed in the shop). The goal at BR Fret Shop is to send you home with an instrument that you like better and understand more than what you brought in. Our honest opinions and advice are always free. When you arrive, we’ll look your instrument over with you and explain what your guitar needs, how much it will cost, and how long we think it will take. Then you tell us what to do. All jobs are priced individually but will usually fall into the following ranges. Prices include free strings, if you like the ones we use: "D'Addario 9, 10, and 11s, acoustic lights, classic regulars and GHS Hawaiian uke's". If you like something special, bring them with you and we will put them on. The cost of parts is not included unless specified.
