Dale Hyldelund, a Graduate of Roberto-Venn School of Luthiery, first opened shop in Nellysford, Virginia in 2017 as a full service guitar and bass repair shop before moving locations and serving Charlottesville, Virginia in early 2020.


The Bread and Butter; almost every instrument that comes through our doors receives a set-up. Set-ups include diagnostics, buffing the frets, cleaning the fretboard, tightening all hardware, restring, nut slot adjustment, truss rod adjustment, balancing the tremolo, adjusting action, setting intonation, cleaning & checking electronics, adjusting pickups, detail & cleaning.


Have some string buzz that just won’t go away, or have you played your instrument so much that the frets are worn down in certain spots? We guarantee precise fretwork using the Erlewine Neck Jig. We offer spot leveling, full leveling, and re-frets using nickel-silver, Stainless, or Gold fretwire.

Structural Repair

Things happen from time to time. Broken headstocks, top-cracks, loose braces, acoustic bridges not wanting to stay glued to the top.. We’ve seen it, we’ve repaired it.

Our services are available by appointment only

We are currently operating on a 1-3 week turnaround time, depending on the severity of the repair.
