Please call for an appointment, weekdays and Saturdays.
My name is Tim Gates and my shop, Gates Guitar Repair, is located in San Francisco's Excelsior District. I'm just one minute off the I-280 Geneva Ave exit, right near Balboa Park Bart and close to CCSF. I'm happy to be a part of the Francisco Studios Building which houses San Francisco Bay Area bands, musicians, artists and other businesses.
I offer one-on-one consultation for all of your guitar, bass and stringed instrument repair needs and wants. I do affordable, high quality setups on acoustic and electric guitars and basses as well as all facets of repair, from fixing that nasty string buzz that drives you crazy to custom nut and saddle work to full re-frets and acoustic guitar neck resets and damage repair. I also restore old instruments as well. All of my work is guaranteed to your satisfaction or it's not finished. I go out of my way to make sure that you are more than happy with your instrument.. Being a musician as well, I totally understand the frustration when something isn't right.
Please don't hesitate to give me a call to set up a convenient time to come in..
Gates Guitar Repair in San Francisco is conveniently located in the Francisco Studios rehearsal and art studio building at San Jose and Niagara. We are a three minute walk from the nice and cleaner than most, Balboa Park Bart Station where the Muni K, M, J, 29, 43, 49, 54, 8x and 88 all converge. In other words, if you're taking public, then this is a perfect location.
