Testimonials and Reviews
Great work and great service. Got my bass set up recently and everybody was super friendly, bass is playing great and was done even faster than I expected. Gabriel is a stand up guy who obviously cares about his customers. Will definitely be back!

So far, very impressed with this place. Prices aren't cheap but fair. But a luthier is like a tattoo, a good one is not cheap and a cheap one is not good. They are keeping me informed on the process via text message, are very friendly and helped me to explore my options and what's best for me and my budget. This new app looks pretty cool.

If I could give this shop 10 stars I would. What a wonderful experience. All of the techs at the shop are friendly, knowledgeable and all around nice people. I recently bought a used instrument online, to say the neck had a bit too much relief would be an understatement. I feared the truss rod may have snapped. To my surprise a few days later I got a message letting me know my instrument was ready to pick up. Between the three luthiers at the shop I doubt they'd get stumped by almost anything. If your looking for a local shop that provides superb service, expert quality work, an incredibly quick turn around time for fair price then look no further. To say the least I highly recommend checking out Gabriel's Guitars you won't be disappointed. - Timothy C. Google
Was nice meeting him the other day. The JA-60 that you guys setup for me, this week, PLAYS LIKE BUTTER! Thank you.
- Paul H.
Thank you very much for your time working on my spaghetti western guitar, and you're down to earth explanation of what a set up actually consists of. It has been very enjoyable to see what great care you take with each instrument.
Very cool! We will certainly follow up with the bone nut and saddle!
You exceeded my expectations, Gabe! You have convinced me this guitar is worthy of conserving.

Found out about this luthier today. I just got my ltd black metal guitar in and it needed some work. I took it over to Gabriel @gabriels_guitars and in 30 minutes my guitar was show ready. Not only was the place nice but Gabriel was a cool dude. What was going to be an in and out deal, ended in a hang out session with the owner. This place is legit. If you need guitar work and you are in tucson go here! If you need work and you are just in Arizona, GO HERE! This is the only place I will ever take my guitar again.

"Took 3 of my guitars to have some work done on them. They were fair, quick and responsive. Great to have a good guitar luthier here in T-town! Thank you Gabriel and your team!🤙🏻😎"

I have had 4 Electric Guitars worked on here recently. The attention to detail at this shop is amazing and I am very happy customer. I had a couple bad experiences at some other places that just weren't able to help my instruments and these guys are awesome. No issues at all, worth every penny. Everyone that works here is a good person. I will use only them anytime I need something! Thanks so much guys!!!

My Les Paul needed to be set up and I found Gabriel's Guitars. Guitar plays and feels noticeably better than before. Highly recommended!

Finally! A professional guitar workshop that I can trust with my high-end instruments! Gabriel’s Guitars have my guitars playing better than they have ever played. Gabriel and Jaerik were incredibly friendly and knowledgeable, and the pricing options are fantastic. I absolutely recommend Gabriel’s Guitars!

Great job on both of my guitars, gents. Thank you…I will be back!

I still am impressed with the setup you did on the Eko Rio Bravo VI I brought in. Still sounds great. I brought it in with Elixir's. I am glad to have made the switch to D'addario.

We took in our vintage guitars from the 60s to Gabriel and he did a really great job setting them up and making them sound great! He brought my bass back to life! You can tell he really has a genuine passion for his work. We recommend Gabriel’s Guitars to our musician friends for professional service & quality work.

100% unedited. @gabriels_guitars just did an absolutely amazing job with my epiphone les Paul. Here's some footage of me really testing it out. Love the work they did and I'll be taking more guitar to them starting with my stage set in the next few weeks. #epiphone #lespaul #guitar
Gabriel, I purchased your light fretboard oil a month or so ago, I finally got around to applying it. MAN, what a difference!!🤩 Great product!🤙🏻😎
- Drew M.
Super impressed with this shop. Everyone is friendly, knowledgeable, and profession. Great service and super fast turn around time. Tucson there is no reason to go to any other shop for your guitar needs!
- Joshua S.
Took my 45 year old guitar in for a once-over. Sounds like a dream again!
- Nancy C.
These folks are certified luthiers and they will take great care of your guitar/bass. They have a good range of instruments (in terms of price) available in their store front as well. I've taken three guitars to be worked on so far and they are my go-to for any future repairs and care advice. I can't recommend them enough!
- Kyle M.
Brought my old Mako bass in for a setup, new strings, etc. Chuck did a great job. Plays like a charm now.
- Jerry M.
Great shop. Everyone is friendly, knowledgeable, and professional. I was incredibly impressed with the outstanding quality and turn around time in getting my guitars worked on. If you thought about visiting this shop for all your guitar and amp repair needs, don’t think about it, do it! Hands down the best in Tucson.
- Josh O.
Best Guitar retail and repair in Arizona!! Knowledgeable staff and quick turnaround on set-ups.
- James W.
Again! Thank you to @gabriels_guitars for getting this bass put back together for me. I got it off a guy back in 2020 and it sat in my house for about 2 years with all the guts ripped out of it and Gabriel, Chuck, and Steve got it back to playing condition. You’ll hear it on my next album. Prepare yourselves. #blackmetal #blackmetalmusic #blackmetalbass #gabrielsguitars #drakkarproductions #dsbm #blackmetalband #blackmetalguitar #metal

These guys are fantastic! They took time to explain everything I wanted to know about being a beginner guitar player. They tuned up my guitar and are very supportive.
- Kevin P.
I love playing guitar but I don't know much about fixing it. I had a pretty simple but very annoying problem and Gabriel could tell immediately what was up and fixed it up perfectly within the time frame he gave me. It was also super easy and efficient to schedule an appointment through his website (a feature some other guitar repair shops in town don't have). I'll definitely be going to him if/when any bigger problems arise. Highly recommend!
- Lucy B.
Gabriel is a knowledgable, honest, and quality guy who brings all those qualities to the instruments he works on. HIGHLY recommended.
- Steven H.
Southern Arizona and beyond - trust your instruments to no other. @gabriels_guitars has no match.
- Ben W.
Gabriel identified a nagging problem with one of my favorite guitars. Excellent, friendly service with a quick turn around. I’ll definitely be back. Thanks.
