Is this inexpensive old guitar worth fixing?
Is it worth it? Well, perhaps.
More often than not, people are pleasantly surprised to find that the cost of repair and restoration is affordable and well worth whatever personal value the guitar has to them.
Sentimental value goes a long way and we have fixed many guitars on that basis alone.
Also, many older instruments may be resuscitated back to excellent playability for many more years of use.
On the other hand, we have seen some people who thought that they had a valuable “keeper”, only to find that it just wasn’t worth the time and expense.
The best thing to do is to bring it in or contact us by phone or email with pictures and descriptions. We will give an honest assessment of not only the present value and condition but we can let you know the prognosis for repair and restoration.
We will not give any kind of valuation or estimation of work without seeing the item.
