Guitar Repair

Professional instrument setups tailored to your play style!

Fab Gear offers professional instrument setup, restrings, and repair. Does your guitar, have high action and is hard to play? Are the strings as old as the guitar? Does your guitar never stay in tune? If your guitar isn't playing "just right", it may be time for service. At Fab Gear we can help you get your instrument back to top form.

A setup on a guitar or bass is required on a regular basis. An instrument that is neglected can become dry and brittle, the neck can excessively bow and the wood can crack. A proper setup keeps the instrument in top playing condition. Our standard setup and restringing includes truss rod and intonation adjustment,

fretboard conditioning, fret polishing, tightening loose hardware, spraying and cleaning of electronics, string height (action) adjustment, pickup height adjustment and a cleaning and polishing of your instrument. When Fab Gear is done with your guitar it will feel and play like a dream!

Whether you need a guitar set up, need a repair, looking for a replacement part for your vintage instrument or if you just want to customize your guitar or bass with new pickups, knobs or tuners, Andy Babiuk’s Fab Gear has what you are looking for. Call us or stop by!
