Guitar Repair

 

AUTOHARP  SERVICES

We have restored many auto-harps. It depends on availability of parts. It has a lot of strings so a full restring job is expensive, and not always necessary. If strings are too old or many are missing, a restring job makes them sound great again.

Will quote upon inspection.
