Reno Guitar Repair has become The Strings of Reno and without a doubt is Reno’s most experienced stringed instrument repair shop. Founded in 1999 by Robert Fear of Folkmusician, the business has grown to include customers from all over the world.
Since the summer of 2016 Reno Guitar Repair has been under new ownership with a new name and shop location! We are The Strings of Reno located at 1155 West 4th Street #117&118 Reno NV 89503.
While sadly Robert is no longer an owner he has found someone to pass the torch along to.
Now without further ado let me introduce myself.
My name is Wesley Wilkerson, I was raised in Richmond Virginia and as a teenager, I found a deep passion for building and repairing stringed instruments. I’ve had the pleasure of working on them now for 10 years developing my skills as a luthier along the way. In those 10 years, I’ve graduated from Roberto-Venn School of Luthiery, worked as the lead stringed instrument repair technician for a highly respected shop Wholesale Guitars in Richmond VA and for the last 5 plus years as a Final Assembly Finishing Repair technician for Gibson USA in Nashville TN. It is now my pleasure to offer these skills to the Silver State with my gold standard!
Our shop is climate & humidity controlled at all times. You can think of it as a health spa for your stringed instrument. We are licensed and insured. While we have never damaged or lost a customer’s instrument, you can feel better knowing that should the worst happen, you will be taken care of. See you soon and have a great day!
