"Adam performed each task with the utmost level of detail and care, and made sure the work performed was exactly to my liking."
"This review is for instrument repair. I cannot express how grateful and impressed I am by the service. They took my unplayable Steinberger, made it play great and did it on time and for an incredibly reasonable charge. Highly recommended. It's so nice to be able to patronize a locally owned business and have them do a great job."
– Ron T., Oakland
"I've had Adam at string shack work on several of my guitars. He's done everything from a simple set-up of a factory-new guitar, to replacement of pickups and pots on a vintage Ibanez, and installation of a new vibrato in my Strat. He performed each task with the utmost level of detail and care, and made sure the work performed was exactly to my liking. Plus, the cost was more than reasonable. I'd highly recommend if you need some instrument repairs."

"I've had Adam Lipansky work on a number of instruments over the years and he always does a great job. His work is professional and very reasonably priced. He also goes out of his way to make sure the job gets done very quickly, especially if time is an issue. Highly recommended!"

Adam has done a number of jobs for me, perfect every time, including set ups on my Lakland and Fender basses, installation of new pickups on my pbass and jbass. Great quality, easy to work with, on budget and on time

"Adam has completed a number of repairs on my basses and they've always turned out great. He also gives really good deals when selling stringed instruments. Not long ago he gave me a great deal on a ukulele and then installed a pick up for me. Whether you're looking for lessons, repairs, or a good place to get a stringed instrument that's already set up beautifully, Adam is highly recommended."
