Servicing Your Guitar



Due to the ongoing pandemic supply chain delays Mr. Zager is currently backed up 5 months on service work.  If your guitar has a simple buzz or doesn’t sound correct, 99% of those issues are fixed easily using water as shown on our help page  look for the answer “buzzing and rattling strings.”   Buzzing strings and poor sound can also be caused by old strings.  If you need new ones you can buy those at

All guitars need to be serviced. Even with little play seasonal changes and damage from dryness will make a guitar that once played perfectly buzz, rattle and sound horrible. Denny Zager has serviced thousands of guitars over the last 50 years and therefore he knows how to restore your guitar to exact Zager specifications.  Since we’re a small family owned shop with little overhead we don’t charge $500 for a service as the larger companies do.  Instead we do everything they do (and more) for a flat fee of $340 and ship your guitar back to you fully insured with no additional shipping costs, professionally boxed in a new heavy duty Zager Guitar shipping container. Your guitar will be handled with care and you’ll be taken care of like family.
