Not only does 'J. White Guitar Workshop's build high quality instruments, but we also do all kinds of high quality repair and restoration work on any wooden musical instrument.

All of the work is of a very high standard, and at a very reasonable price. So if you have an old beaten up wooden instrument hidden away somewhere, then dig it out! You will be amazed at the results. Snapped necks, dents, heavy scratches, refrets, visual makeovers. If you can imagine it... we can do it! (Sorry we no longer offer resprays - eg. colour change).


If your guitar has a broken headstock, don't panic! Save all the little pieces and try and keep them in position the best you can. Bring it to us so we can work our magic. The repair on the joint will be stronger than the wood itself so will never split in the same place again. Often the repair is completely invisible but we always state that the repair would be virtually unnoticeable.

Of course like with all repairs, prices vary, so, give us a callemail us or pop your guitar over to us and we will go from there. We can sometime give estimates via emails but 9 times out of 10 we would need the guitar is our hands to give a more accurate pricing. You are welcome to send us photos or describe your guitar's problem in as much detail as possible and we will do our best to give you a rough estimation on cost.


Whatever you want, we can accommodate your requirements. No job is too big or too small!


Please contact us for further information.

The split in the neck is gently opened, glued and clamped back shut under pressure. The repair is then filled, sanded, filled, sanded and so on, until the neck is complete again. Stains, paints and lacquers are applied next. Once the paints and lacquers are completely dry, the neck is then polished until you get the result shown in the next set of images...

The repair is virtually undetectable! In many cases, the split is not noticeable at all! .....Awesome!
