We're expanding our repair shop in a big way, and we're looking for more guitar technicians. We need people who are great and quick at setups and general guitar maintenance —experience doing structural repairs, including fret work, bridge re-glues, crack repairs, and neck resets are a plus but not required.

This is a cool job for someone who:

  • Has a passion for music and woodworking

  • Is hands-on, driven, does not require a lot of hand holding, but is ready to listen and learn

  • Wants to be around music and to work on amazing vintage guitars


This position gives you a chance to work on a wide variety of stringed instruments, including high-end vintage guitars. We fix instruments for the biggest rock stars and the kid next door.
