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.

Acoustic Bridge Replacement

This Washburn came in for an overhaul. The owner wanted the Fishman Matrix acoustic pickup installed, and for best tone, installing a bone saddle is recommended. With it's original bridge, the install is impossible. The metal saddle "holder" is way too wide and interferes with the functionality of a piezo pickup. We decided to take off the old, crummy bridge and outfit it with a new ebony one, with a narrow slot, perfect for a piezo pickup install. Check out the pictures of before, in process and after:

The new bridge has a slightly different footprint than the old one. But the trace is nearly invisible. We installed the pickup and handcrafted a bone saddle, cut for intonation, and this guitar is ready to sing!
