Guitar Repair, maintenance and restoration

Welcome to Gates Guitar and Stringed Instrument Repair


​Welcome to Gates Guitar Repair in beautiful Boise.  I recently relocated from San Francisco where I have had a shop for the past 7 years.  Please call, text or email for an appointment.

Please give me a call to set up an ideal time to bring by your instrument for a one-on-one consultation. I will find the best and most affordable solution to whatever problem you may have whether you simply need a setup or fretwork or extensive restoration work on your beloved instrument.

Whether your instrument is acoustic or electric, bass guitar or banjo, mandolin or ukulele, new or vintage, the work is only complete when you’re completely satisfied. The goal is to exceed your expectations and make your instrument play and sound its absolute best.
