  1. You are listed on the Taylor site as a gold repair shop. Good to see because I don’t want to have to go to NYC for check ups. I have an 814 and a 656 which need their checkups. Is this something you al can do?

  2. Hi Ron,
    After playing my Gretsch 6118 for a few months now, I’m super happy with the way it plays and feels. It’s fast, comfy, and full of cool tones. I’ve teamed it up with an old Squier Champ and it is the best sounding jazz setup I’ve ever had. Thanks again for making me look and sound cool!
    Best wishes,
    Jan Stroup

  3. I have a 1976 Mossman Great Plains which I fear needs some major surgery. I’ve been reading that Mossmans this old often need a neck reset (I’m having intonation issues!) I know the Mossmans are quirky. Is this something you can handle? How long might it take if it does need the reset?

  4. Ron and Michelle, thank you so much for all the detailed work on my sweet mandolin (Butter). She’s an old girl, but you have made Butter better!!! Thank you. Rachel.

  5. I have just discovered your sight and I have been looking for a little advice. I have a Martin 000-15M and I have been contemplating putting in a pickup rather than using a sound hole pickup. She’s a delicate lady so I am not sure if it would be wise to mess with it. I am thinking either an IBeam or a K&K pure mini. Could you offer me some advice?

    • Hi Jay, Yes I would highly recommend the K&K pure mini. We’ve installed lots of them in all kinds of guitars. They sound really nice, and easy to use. Very unobtrusive. Runs about $115 without a volume control, + 100 labor, or $160 with volume control, + 125 labor. Would take less than a week.

      Thanks for the inquiry!

    • It’s impossible to say without seeing it. It could be anywhere from $50 to 450, and take anywhere from 1 week to 2 months.
      We’d be happy to take a look and give you a much closer estimate. Bring it in any time M-F !0-5, Sat 10-4.

  6. Hello, I tend to run on when I am excited. I can write 1,000 words where most people can get it done in 100. ( and yeah, i got lots of time on my hands ’till i don’t have any time at all) So Be It!

    TRUST!
    Ron listened to my complaining and sensed an extremely anxious Type A Jersey Joe and calmly opened the options to get my G&L S-500 Tribute (Indonesia lol) to be quite. There are so many options for pick-up replacement. And so many people and places to have guitar work done. We live in the land of Optiontunity (sic, i make up words) an my 70 yr old mind, perhaps fried somewhat from 50+ years of lounge life, can’t tell the right from the wrong. Ok, I’ll get to the point.

    TRUST
    You need Strat pick-ups? Do the KINMANs man, opps, or lady. No noise, crystal clear, bright shiny glass tones to make angels sing. But that’s not all……………………
    The cost was worth the prize. Hey, I am not going to attain the performance level I had in the past but in the final quarter of the game I want to have the sound I’ve longed for, and damn it Ron, your an artist not just a guitar fixer. The job came in under budget, and in a 1.5 day turn around.

    TRUST
    If you find you need a guitar fixing, take it from one pessimistic anxiety prone once-been, (that be me kids) you can trust St. Paul Guitar Repair, and remember this, YOU DESERVE THE BEST and for my wife money, this is the place. ST PAUL GUITAR REPAIR.

    I’m done now, gonna go play some blues and sound like $1,000,000, (if only I could play like it)

    Peace and God Bless.

    I am joe juliano an i approve of this ridiculously over the top effort to praise SPGR.

    (what key, what key?)

  7. I brought in a Taylor gs mini (koa) that I purchased two years ago. It had never been properly set up for a beginning guitar player like myself. Michelle set it up and put lightweight strings on it and I can now play most of the challenging bar chords that I have struggled with. One of the best aspects of this experience is that Michelle was able to access my warranty from Taylor and only charged me for the new strings–$10. Awesome!
