Christmas Gift Ideas for Calgary at Guitar OR

Xmas is almost here. Let Guitar OR help you get the perfect gift for the music lover in your life. From pickups and strings to hardware upgrades like bridges and tuners, we can help.Or if that sounds very overwhelming to you, we are happy to offer gift certificates as well.

For the Calgary guitar player that has it all, we suggest a full custom set up. Calgarys winters are very hard on wooden instruments, resulting in a hard to play instrument. We can do all the necessary adjustments to get it playing its best again. Guitar is tough enough without having to fight your instrument. Set ups and repairs are offered on all guitar, basses, banjos and mandolins. Anything with strings on it, really.

For a super special person in your life with an older instrument stuffed away in the closet, we can offer restorations. It can be as simple as a good cleaning and adjustments to get it playing again, to a full restoration. Whether it needs refinishing, wood repair or a full overhaul, Guitar OR is happy to help. Calgary guitar repair is our speciality. After all, Santa loves guitar.

Our Latest Custom Build: Sultan


Guitar O.R. has finished their latest build. This guitar offered a lot of challenges in that its anything but “standard.” It all starts with a high quality cut of Alder wood. This guitar was truely custom in that it was a Fender Telecaster style but commissioned to include a sustainer pickup, phase circuit; distortion circuit, and kill switch all build in.

Many hours were spent with trial runs of proper and effective placement of each addition to the electrical system, while maintaining all considerations to ensure top tonal response. This beauty was complemented with a maple/ rosewood neck, Hipshot tuners, Barenuckles pickups and nitro cellulose finish.
