Glenn Nichols Guitars offers professional repair services for all stringed instruments. I specialize in French polish and nitrocellulose lacquer restorations. All aspects of guitar repair are available, including: set up, fret work, neck resets and crack repair. I aim to uphold the highest standards in classical, steel string and electric guitar restoration.
I have been building, finishing and repairing guitars since 2003. The first ten years of my career were spent honing my skills in small production shops in California. Over the years I have worked for the Santa Cruz Guitar Company, Kenny Hill Guitars and Tippin Guitars.
As a specialist in high end instrument repair a large majority of my work is shipped to my shop. If you are from the Boston area you are more than welcome to make an appointment to visit the shop. Otherwise, packing and shipping the instrument will be necessary. Please feel free to contact me if you need assistance making shipping arrangements.
I would be happy to discuss your repair either by phone or email. In many cases detailed pictures of the issue will help me to give an initial estimate. I will also give an estimated turn around time based on my current work load .
My small, one man shop is located in Norfolk, Massachusetts, approximately half way between Boston and Providence. I am open Thursday through Sunday by appointment only. Please call or email first to schedule an appointment. All information can be found in the Contact section of this website.
Thank you very much for your interest in my work.
