Bob's going to spend a lot of time on your instrument, whether you bring it in for a set-up

or a fret job. His charges are based on the amount of time it takes to get it right - he doesn't

settle for good enough and neither should you.

His bench rate is $95/hour and the minimum instrument handling charge (not including a

restring) is $50. Rush work available at an extra charge. Basic charges are below but

additional charges may apply, depending on the work to be done, based on the hourly rate.
