Banjo Repairs and Setups

Banjo pickers are always welcome at G.R.L.I.

While guitars and basses undeniably get the bulk of our affections here in shop, we know that banjo players need someone to show their instruments some love too!

While these instruments share some obvious similarities with the guitar, they have many unique features that require instrument specific knowledge, tools, and techniques to get them playing correctly. 

G.R.L.I. is ready to help with all of your banjo repair needs.  We have strings and basic parts in stock to get your instrument back to you ASAP.
