COVID-19 UPDATE

TO THOSE WHO HAVE USED MY SERVICES BEFORE, the shop is open using the following (updated) guidelines:

• Drop-off and pickup continues to be done using masks and appropriate social distancing (I am fully vaccinated).

• Limit: two instruments per visit.

• No major projects.

TO NEW CUSTOMERS:

Because of continued high demand and the time consuming nature of meticulous high quality work, I am regretfully unable to take on new clients at this time. My apologies.

Welcome to Long Island Guitar Repair

Long Island Guitar Repair is a full-service repair shop conveniently located on the south shore of Suffolk (Brightwaters), right near Sunrise Hwy and the Southern State Pkwy. The shop is run by me, Mike Christian,* a 35-year veteran of the Musical Instrument industry.

 

Because I focus exclusively on repairs and non-major restoration work, I can offer impeccable workmanship and quick turnarounds at prices that make sense for working musicians, students and hobbyists. I do all types of fretwork, setups (same day service available - see Set-Ups page), electronic repairs and customization, pickup installation and replacement, nuts and saddles, bridge repairs, locking and non-locking vibratos, tuning machines and more.

 

In addition to the hundreds of repairs that have crossed my bench, I have also serviced thousands of instruments while working for several guitar and stringed instrument manufacturers. Click on the REPAIR SERVICES tab for an itemized list of services and prices or feel free to contact me regarding any other work you may have in mind.

 

*If the name sounds familiar, you may remember a line of piezo pickups that I produced in the 1980’s. These revolutionary bridge saddle pickups generated uncanny acoustic guitar tones when installed on standard electric guitars and basses. These designs are currently used in Graph Tech’s GHOST line of pickups and are still considered to be the most authentic, natural-sounding electric guitar bridge saddle pickups available.
