Repair and Restoration Services

This is a list of common prices I charge for jobs at Rosewood. Work on your instrument may vary in price depending on what steps are needed during the course of work.

I will establish a general estimate for final cost after examining your instrument before beginning work. I am usually accurate in my estimate, however, at times, things come up during the job that alter things. I always make my best effort to stick the repair path outlined and agreed upon. I always consult with my clients when things appear to be changing.
