Testimonials from our customers
Your satisfaction is our #1 priority in the work we do
I’ve depended on Ron and Michele for almost 40 years. Their work has never failed. Jobs from major to minor— including some of my own bullshit ideas— always 120%. Easy parking, and you don’t have to pass the SAT’s every time you walk in their door.
I've been going to Ron for years for guitar fixes. He's simply the best. If you want your guitar playing like a new instrument, St. Paul Guitar Repair is the way to go. I 100% recommend St Paul Guitar Repair for any repairs. I don't live anywhere near them, but they are worth the drive. They are experts. This is the only way to go!

My first visit to SPGR was for a fairly minor cosmetic issue on a solid body electric. Michele quickly took care of the issue and the work done looks good as new! Now that is customer service. Thank you Michele; you are a real gem! Will be returning soon with a modification request for another guitar
Michele, I just had to send you a quick note of thanks for doing such a terrific job setting up my guitar. I played it a lot over the weekend and took it to a jam on Sunday. The new saddle has really made a big difference in the intonation. The lowered action feels amazing and it is now a joy to play. I couldn’t be happier. Thanks again!
Absolutely the best service available in Minnesota. Professional, meticulous craftsmanship on every project I've ever brought in, and I've had some doozies. This should be the only stop for any serious player or collector.
Ron has done the setups and repairs to all of my guitars (electric, acoustic, and classical) for over thirty years when I lived in Boston, the Twin Cities, or even now when I live in Wyoming I bring my guitars to the St. Paul Guitar Repair. I've used these guitars on thousands of gigs and studio dates over the decades and they have never let me down.
