Guitar Restoration Rates

All repairs and restorations are performed by Eric Schaefer at a rate of $60/hr. A minimum bench fee of $75 is required for diagnosis. Eric Schaefer is a highly skilled luthier and woodworker and can accommodate most requests.

All repairs and restorations are performed only in the months of November, December, January and February. The rest of the year I am busy teaching the Hands-On Guitar Building Workshops and completing other projects.

If you are looking for an urgent repair, or a quick set-up, then this is not the place for you. However, if you have a serious restoration or repair that you want done right, and you don’t mind being put on a wait-list, then look no further! I am a Professional and every winter I devote my full attention to the list of restorations I have accumulated on a first-come-first-served basis.

Please contact Eric Schaefer by phone (610-639-2777) or by E-mail ( with questions or to receive an estimate for your specific project.
