Common Issues With Acoustic Guitars Needing Repair

Structural Damage

Acoustic guitars are delicate instruments that can suffer structural damage over time and with frequent use. Common issues include cracks in the soundboard, backboard, sides, or neck joint that require professional repair. Neglecting to fix structural damage can worsen over time and significantly impact the tone and playability of your guitar.

Action and Intonation

The action refers to the height of the strings above the frets, which can become too high or too low over time. High action makes the guitar difficult to play, while low action can cause buzzing frets. Intonation refers to the guitar’s ability to produce notes that are in tune across the fretboard. As the guitar’s parts settle and change shape, the intonation and action may need adjustment by a skilled luthier.


For acoustic-electric guitars, the pickups and preamps that amplify the acoustic sound can malfunction or become damaged. This may result in no sound, crackling, buzzing, or other undesirable noises. The input jack where you plug in the guitar cable can also become loose or damaged, requiring replacement.

Tuning Peg Issues

The tuning pegs on the guitar’s headstock control the tension and pitch of each string. Over time, the tuning pegs can become stiff, slip, or break, making it difficult to keep the guitar in tune. Repair or replacement of individual tuning pegs or the entire tuning peg assembly may be necessary to restore tuning stability.

Acoustic Guitar Repair

Proper care and maintenance can prevent many common issues with acoustic guitars. However, repairs should be left to a skilled luthier to avoid further damage or playability problems. With professional repair, your acoustic guitar can provide many more years of musical enjoyment.

Bridge and Nut Adjustments

The bridge and nut are critical components that affect intonation and playability. If your guitar’s action is too high or the intonation seems off, the bridge or nut likely needs adjustment. Our luthiers can file down and reseat the bridge and nut to lower the action and ensure accurate intonation up and down the fretboard.


Frets that are worn down, uneven, or sharp can make playing uncomfortable and impact tone. Our fretwork services include leveling, crowning and polishing frets as well as complete fret replacement if needed. We take great care to retain the neck’s structural integrity and your guitar’s tonality.
