Well you have come to the right place.

Ultimate Guitar Repair, which is the blog spin-off from Ultimate Guitar OnLine, will help you through the every little detail as far as repairing the guitar is concerned. We will be updating this site very frequently and providing you with a stream of new information for your every guitar repair need. If we don’t have the answer, and I certainly don’t claim to know all there is to know about guitar repair, we will find out for you and there will certainly be very experienced guitar repairmen willing to lend a helping hand.

Look for posts on tools for guitar repairs, methods, how-to’s, tips and techniques. We really desire you input here as well and this is the reason for this blog format – to engage in direct discussions with our readers.

So be sure to visit us often and check out the latest and greatest content for guitar repairs on the internet. If it has to do with guitar repair, we will cover it. If we don’t, tell us about it so we can.

How To Find The Article You Want:
Blogs can be kind of confusing as to how to find just the article or subject matter you are interested in. I have made the process much simpler on this blog. You can always click on the Table of Contents Tab at the top of every article and find the subject and article clearly listed. Another way is to use the “Search or Guitar Sites” box at the right side of each page.

David,
