Frequently Asked Questions
No appointment is necessary. Just drop by your nearest Guitar Center location. You can certainly make an appointment if you prefer—it might save you from waiting in line, but it is not required.
Prompt turnaround is always a priority. However, exact times depend on each store's volume of repairs. Guitar Center guarantees the strictest quality and productivity standards at all Guitar Center Repairs locations.

String Replacement: How often you need to replace your strings depends on how often you play, climate conditions, type and quality of string, etc. Generally, every three to four weeks is about right, but if you play hard and often, you'll want to change strings as soon as they start to feel grungy or lose tuning stability.

Tune-Up/Setup: Generally, it's a good idea to have a setup done two to four times a year to compensate for seasonal fluctuations in temperature and humidity.

We only hire the best. All of our Guitar Center Repairs technicians are experienced instrument repair experts. They attend certification classes and receive ongoing training and certification, so you always know your guitar is in safe, expert hands.
From pickups and electronics to hardware and cosmetic upgrades, there are countless ways to take your guitar to the next level. Our expert Repairs technicians will listen to your wish list and help you turn your musical dreams into reality.
Unless it's made of graphite, environmental factors definitely make a difference. Depending on where you live, the severity of the effects varies. Extremes of temperature or humidity, as well as drastic shifts between extremes, will take more of a toll and require more frequent setups.
