Guitar repair


Fixing boo-boo’s in guitar land. Are you the guitar player for a famous guy and you need a string in the middle of the night? Hey, welcome to gitaargast.

Just launched a new sexy product, check it out!

I repair guitars, other stringed instruments and effect pedals. I was kind of fed up with Facebook, although it has it’s advantages. Back to an old-fashioned website.

Things I repair include:

  • setup
  • fret dressing
  • fret crowning
  • soldering
  • replacing parts
  • glueing broken necks and headstocks
  • fixing wood damage
  • cleaning
  • fretboard care
  • cosmetic repair
  • lacquer repair
  • intonation
  • truss rod adjustment
  • string height
  • pickup height
  • cleaning pots & switches
  • and much more. Contact me to see what I can do for you.

And usually I film a demo of the guitar and post a video.

Buy and sell and parts

Throughout the year, I attend several trade shows in the Netherlands, collect and resell guitars and effect pedals, and I make after market parts.


If I cannot repair your instrument or effect pedal, I will tell you. I know others who might. Rescued some cool guitars. Glued some necks and headstocks back on and repaired a fair bunch of pedals. Learning to be a luthier* (fancy word for musical instrument builder). Had some training building instruments and I did some studying on my own.


A while back our beloved bossarea website died, so I went out and rescued all the content from Google cache and the Wayback machine. Added a Boss serial number checker, enjoy!
