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 lessons for all levels and ages. Ask us about our teachers, they are eager to share their skills.

Fender bass GUitar conversion

This Fender bass was converted to a 6-string in the past. Now the player, Masa, wants to convert it to a 5-string, so we did this:



Buzz Feiten Tuning System



Silesia Guitars is now an authorized retrofitter of the Buzz Feiten tuning system! Having trouble to be in tune? There might be many reasons for that, but if you have done the obvious- setup, cleaning up nut slots and are still not happy, this might be something for you. A shelf nut gets installed moving the nut closer to the first fret, which compensates for the extra tension that is normally there, and intonation is modified. Read more at

Larrivee Refret

Check out how this Larrivee gets transformed on our bench!

These frets had a lot of wear on them and the grooves mess with intonation. Verdict- refret! Customer also wanted a bit taller and wider frets, and in order to accommodate the height, the nut also needed to be replaced. In addition, the bridge plate was coming off and needed to be glued down. Click through these pics to see the progress!

SIT Strings

We are proud to announce that we now carry SIT Strings! This is an Ohio based company and all their strings are American made. Some of the big names that play SIT are: David Ellefson (Megdeath), Willie Adler (Lamb of God), Shinedown, Max Cavalera. Also, waiting for the first 10 customers who get their guitar set up with these strings are free posters of Richard Kruspe of Rammstein!
