Professional Guitar Repair

Wimsatt Instruments offers high quality stringed instrument repair and customization.                   

We have years of experience running the entire gamut of musical instrument repair. 

Here are just a few of the repairs we do.                                                                                                                

  • Setups

  • Electronic Repairs

  • Complete Rewire with Vintage Correct Wire

  • Custom Pickup Fabrication

  • Bridge Reglues

  • Crack Repair

  • Neck Resets

  • Refret (Full or Partial)

  • Fret Dress and Level

  • Many, Many, More

You don't pay for the work until you are happy with it. End of story. We also do our very best to keep your guitar in your hands. You won't find multiple week waits on anything but the largest jobs like vintage restoration or refinish and only then because of the time it takes for lacquer to dry properly. In most cases, repairs can be picked up the same day or within 24 hours.


Guitar Repair Institute

The Guitar Repair Institute teaches repair in a real working shop environment. While in class working on practice instruments, you will see the inner workings of a fully functioning repair shop to gain some insight on not only the repair work, but also the business side of running your own shop. We look forward to seeing you.

Handwound Pickups

We make pickups the way they should be made, by hand, one at a time. Every pickup we make uses only the finest materials from Alnico magnets and plain enamel wire to cloth covered hookup leads. Each pickup is wound by one person by hand, meaning that each pickup has a unique scatter wind for a more rich tonality and harmonic structure.


Feel free to browse through our current models under the main menu. If you have an idea for a new custom pickup or even want to change something on a stock model, just let us know and we will be more than happy to fabricate anything you can imagine.
