Help, my guitar is broken!

Many guitar shops offer repair services or sell protective cases for your instrument, but there are some businesses here in Raleigh that specialise in repairing damaged guitars. They might also be able to build or replace a part.

Some, like Jeffrey Earle, specialise in building beautiful custom guitars – see also here.

For repair of electronic accessories like guitar or bass amps see the Mad Science Works.
