Welcome to Silesia Guitars, the guitar repair shop in Shoreline that is dedicated to taking good care of your dear friend, the guitar. We are located in Shoreline, just 15 min north of downtown Seattle. Our work consists of repairs of anything from broken headstocks and  cracked guitar tops, through replacing/installing electronics and custom inlays. Just need a set up or a string change? No problem! We try to accommodate any needs, big or small. Usually, the cheaper the guitar, the more it would benefit from being professionally set up. Evaluations are free, so stop by with your guitar today and let's talk about how we can help you get the most out of it!

We also offer guitar/bass and vocal lessons for all levels and ages. Ask us about our teachers, they are eager to share their skills.

Every guitar, even new, needs to be properly set up to accommodate your playing style and choice of string gauge. Most guitars also react to change of seasons or climate, and need periodical readjustment. A proper set up can change a feel of a guitar and is recommended for every player.

Random words of wisdom

To achieve bright and crisp tone from your acoustic, make sure that your guitar is outfitted with a bone saddle and nut. Most acoustics come with plastic/composite nuts and don't do your tone justice.

 

Never store your guitars close to a heater- they will dry out and might crack. The set up will change significantly. 

 

Thinking of scalloping your fingerboard? Consider having tall frets installed- it will give you a similar effect of least contact between finger and fingerboard which slows down those that desire to achieve highest "shredding" speed.

 

Do you experience that your strings turn black/rusty as soon as you play them? Some players have a finger sweat chemistry that does not jive with the string materials and as a result, strings look dirty after even one day of playing. If you have that issue, consider switching to a coated string. You will sacrifice a little bit of tone (it won't be as crisp as a brand new set of strings, although some companies out there are starting to come out with better and better coatings), but your strings will last you a lot longer, sounding pretty good.
