Guitar Tech

Guitar repair and setup for professional musicians for over twenty years

Guitar Tech is an independent, full-service repair shop, located in Berkeley California. Operating since 1982, we offer a full range of repair services for both electric and acoustic guitars, and for electric bass.
The shop is located in south Berkeley, in the Rockridge district, with easy parking. We operate by appointment only, between 12 noon and 7 PM, Tuesday through Saturday -- we're closed on Sunday and Monday. Please give us a call, at (510) 548-8370, to make an appointment -- we're happy to examine your instrument and discuss whatever work it may need.
I'm Stephen White, the owner and head repairman. I originally apprenticed with Ralph Novak - a fine repairman and guitar builder, out of New York - and worked alongside him, repairing instruments from 1979 into 1982. Since opening my own shop, I have worked closely with many of the San Francisco Bay Area's outstanding musicians, both to maintain and repair their instruments, and to develop new designs of electric guitars and basses.
