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.
Guitar OR has had the pleasure of teaming up with the Calgary Folk Festival for 7 consecutive years now. Together we are able to ensure that all the performers have access to a full line of adjustments and repairs for the entire event.
Calgarys climate is hard on instruments. Especially some that are coming from far off destinations with completely different humidity and temperature levels. This causes moderate to severe fluctuations in the wood of the instruments. We often see cracking, warping and finish issues. More moderate issues will be string height movement, fret and tuning issues, along with electrical problems.
We are on-site from start to finish each day, allowing us to help remedy these issues and keep the music coming. Some of the instruments are foreign, but fortunately share similarities with all stringed instruments. With a proper dose of time and skill, we are able to get the instruments playing and sounding as good as ever.
As fans of music ourselves, we are happy to play our role in keeping the Calgary Folk Festival going strong.
