Instrument Repair

Repair Department

The Buffalo Creek Guitar repair department can handle anything from simple string changes to neck re-sets. The in-house crew handles most of the work (string changes, set-ups, fret leveling, crowning and polishing, and crack repairs), while the bigger jobs (neck re-sets, fret replacements, and finish work) go to Luthier, David Houchens, of Bryce Instruments.
