Repairs & Services
All of us here at 555 love cool instruments & amps that not only sound great - but feel & play first class. All of us here have a wealth of knowledge of the in's & outs of gear - if were not gigging or recording we are installing new pickups or changing valves in old amps! We also work with a big team of qualified luthiers, guitar repairs & amp tech's around Melbourne and across Australia. James Mumford, Dave Paul, Simon Cotter & Rob Squier are all great service agents 555 endorse. We offer the following services:
Instrument Restring from $35
Nothing beats a fresh set of strings on your favourite guitar (or bass, banjo or mandolin) at 555 we can do this for you. In this basic service we take your old rusty strings off, treat the fingerboard with lemon oil, clean up your axe and put a new set of strings on. A basic restring starts from $35 plus the cost of your favourite strings. This service takes between 3 to 7 days depending on how busy we are.
Instrument Set Up & Service from $70
A perfectly set up instrument sings and can breath a new lease of life into your instrument. Instruments that buzz, choke and fret out are not that fun to play at all! Adjusting the intonation by fine tuning the guitar’s bridge, tweaking the neck to perfection to ensure neck relief and action is in synch with a new set of strings. This service starts from $70 plus the cost of your favorite strings and takes between 3 to 10 days depending on how busy we are.
Major repairs from $100
A major repair consists of anything that can't be fixed in an instrument service. This includes fret work, broken head stocks, refinishing, changing machine heads, replacing pickups, nuts, saddles & anything else that’s not quite right on your instrument. All major repairs start from $100 - however all repairs are different and most of our pricing is P.O.A so we need to see the issue to accurately assess the problem. This service takes between 7 to 10 days depending on how busy we are.
Guitar / Amp Electronic Repairs P.O.A
Need a new capacitor for your Telecaster? How bout a installing a new P90 in your new Airline or putting a new set of valves in your amp? The soldering iron is usually hot at 555 and we can help with most electronic repairs. *All major electronic work incurs a $35 bench fee before any work is done.
