SETUP

Acoustic Guitar Service and Repairs - Book Online

Every guitar needs regular maintenance and care to keep it playing, sounding and looking its very best, and this is especially important with carefully crafted acoustic instruments. Environmental factors including humidity levels and temperature can greatly affect an instrument, and seasonal changes can drastically alter the feel, sound, and playability of your guitar. As a rule, we recommend a setup and service at the start of each season to keep your guitar performing as it should.

To make a booking, you can use our online booking service on this page. Simply choose your service and click "Schedule Your time". Bookings are for the day of drop off, pick any time and bring your instrument in on that day. 

Our in-house techs have decades of experience with all brands and categories of instrument, with dedicated specialist tooling and manufacturer-approved qualifications. If you are unsure of the service you require, please contact us at info@acousticcentre.com.au or on (03) 9699 5691. Services include:

    Reliable and professional service

    I had by guitar serviced by Acoustic Guitar Service and Repairs. Booking in for a service was easy and the guys there are really knowledgeable and professional. The whole service was done in about an hour and my guitar was looking like brand new! Will definitely go to them again if I need any guitar advice.
