Monty's Workshop Services

The workshop is undeniably the heart of Monty's. With our team of talented luthiers, we work on guitars, basses and pretty much anything else with strings on. Whether your guitar just needs a setup or is in dire need of major surgery, we believe most things are repairable. We've dealt with guitars that have been in warehouse floods, studio fires, literally beaten on stage and involved in some nasty breakups, all of which have come out the other side as good as new. So whatever your problem is, Monty's can sort it for you. If you need a service that you can't see here, please contact us and we'll get you sorted.
