Over 20 years experience, I do all manner of guitar repair, set-up, customization, and offer both tube and solid state amplifier repair. So, if your customers’ guitars have cracks, buzzing, busted headstock, or any other ailment and you want the best repair, contact me below. While I mainly work on guitars (both acoustic & electric), I have also repaired banjos, mandolins, ukuleles & a bouzouki or two.

Brian’s knowledge in guitars and music is out of this world I wouldn’t dare take my instruments to anyone else. Made that mistake before and paid the price he will always work on my equipment. Keep the good work going your the number one guy in redwing

Excellent Service! I drive an hour each way to bring my instruments to Brian, well worth the time. If you want it done right this is the place to go. I’ve been playing for 42 years and only been really happy with one other luthier besides Brian. They are hard to find!

I’ve had nothing but great experiences at Tree Strings. From patching holes on my acoustic guitar to electronic work on my strat, Brian has always been there with consistent, detailed results at a fair price. Definitely will bring my guitars here again!

Brian is incredible! Very knowledgable, will explain what work needs to be done on your instrument. Prices are very reasonable.

I had a fret replaced and a fret leveling on my LTD gold top electric guitar. Brian did an incredible job and it plays better that it ever has. I live closer to the twin cities and many luthiers but make the drive down to Redwing. Brian does incredible work and I recommend highly!
