Schedule A Repair

Repairs On Time, The First Time

Picture this: you have a complex neck break on your prized Martin acoustic. Those chain music stores don’t have the trained staff to help you. You’re told you need to transport your precious guitar to an unknown location to complete the repair. Suddenly, the thought of shipping your instrument to an unknown location, factory or mass tech center makes you a bit nervous. 

You have no idea who will actually be working on your guitar. You’re worried about additional damage and extensive wait times. You’re unsure if they’ll fix it correctly, or if this is the first of many runs to fedex.

My friend, J. Rieck cares far too much about your instrument to keep you guessing about the repair quality, progress or timeline.

Conveniently located in Sioux Falls, SD, our fully-equipped repair shop sits right next door to our music store, offering professional repair service for all your stringed instruments. With J. Rieck, you’ll know who’s working on your guitar. Our experienced, knowledgeable staff is dedicated to maintaining the integrity of your instrument, providing top-notch timely service, and most importantly, making sure you’re comfortable and informed throughout the repair process. 

We work tirelessly to get your instrument back in shape on time, the first time.

Trust your guitar, violin, cello, viola or bass to the experience of J. Rieck Music--a certified Martin Warranty Center and career Lutherie.
