Adam's String Shack is one of the best and busiest repair shops in the Bay Area.
We offer complete service for all Fender brand instruments, and can maintain or fix any brand or model string instrument, from any dealer or even private sale. Our shop rate for stringed instrument repair is only $60.00 per hour. That’s $20.00 less than the national average! All Stringed instrument repairs are performed in house by our staff, and are usually ready to play within 48 hours! Online purchases, yard sales, a gift from Gramma, we do them all!
We can offer on the spot evaluations of older instruments and provide an estimate of the total cost of the repairs or adjustments needed when you bring your ‘closet classic’ to us. We will always tell our customers if an instrument is too far gone to fix, but we seldom have any repair request that we can’t handle.
