Motown Guitar Service is committed to providing top-quality repair and customization services to Detroit's music community, since 2014.
Please visit the contact page for appointment information.
MGS seeks to provide a more specialized tech service that caters primarily to the working musician; which means more focus on setup, maintenance, fretwork, and modifications and less on time-intensive paint and restoration work. While limited cosmetic services are offered, they take a backseat to the needs of the gigging player so they are always ready for the next show.
Setups - $40+
Nuts - $60+ Acoustic Saddles - $40+
Fret Levels - $80+ (includes setup)
Refrets - $200+ (includes setup and bone nut)
Pickup Installs - $25 ea. (passive pickups)

Motown Guitar Service is a small, one-man operation humbly run out of my basement shop. Service is by appointment only, but I try to make myself as available as possible no matter what day or time it is- so if it's an hour til showtime or 3am and your go-to guitar goes down in the studio, give me a call and I'll do my best to save the day.
MGS owner and technician, Craig Miner has over 10 years experience as both technician and builder. After years of tinkering and experimenting on his own guitars, he began his professional career servicing fellow student musician's guitars and basses while studying Audio Production at Columbia College Chicago. In 2009 he attended the Galloup School of Guitar Building shortly before accepting an apprenticeship position with Third Coast Guitar Service of Chicago under master technician Robert Daniel and technicians Nathan Weathers and Zachary Duran. In 2014, having rigorously studied the many facets of tech work in the Chicago music scene, he decided to open up shop back home in Detroit aiming to bring a new level of technicianship to the area.
