We can fix most issues with your instrument and make it sound and play better than ever!  We sell gear on consignment with a very low commission, and have a selection of guitars, bases, amps and pedals in the shop.

We are also the region's only Silvertone Guitars and Stringjoy strings dealer, and we have strings from D'Addario and Ernie Ball as well as a selection of picks, capos, clip-on tuners and cables.  Follow us on Instagram @great_bay_guitars for project pictures and updates about new inventory.

I began modifying instruments over 20 years ago when I became the guitar tech/roadie/merch guy for the band Say Zuzu.  A few years later, I became their bass player and bought a beat-up, poorly refinished 1967 Epiphone Rivoli.  I soon stripped it and refinished it with a natural top and black back and sides.  While the band took a 20 year break, I learned traditional woodworking construction and finishing techniques, restored antique furniture and built furniture while also working on guitars as a hobby. Recently, a good friend encouraged me to start repairing and modifying guitars for other people, starting with a Tele that had been sitting in his closet for many years.  That led to another, and another.... And Great Bay Guitars was born!
