Repair & Restoration Services

Currently, John Jordan is primarily accepting repair work on the violin family instruments. Everything from minor adjustments to major restorations and repairs.

John continues to offer repairs on guitars and similar fretted instruments but only on a limited basis. The decision to focus on violin repair was made based of the lack of nearby shops that offer such a full range of violin repair services, and John's decades of service to this community. The demand for the instruments John builds have made it impractical to take on every guitar repair request in this geographic area that needs to be done; my best advice would be to call first and if my schedule allows I'll accept your guitar repair work.

Otherwise there are other luthiers in the area offering guitar repair at a high skill level such as Benny Rodriguez in Pleasant Hill at (925) 639-6930 and Rob Schweitzer in Martinez at (925) 370-7380.

When John was running a multi employee shop, he and his employees repaired thousands of instruments every year. We have done everything from minor adjustments on new instruments to an extensive restoration on a 1591 Zanetto cello. We have experience with all the familiar stringed instruments as well as unusual ethnic instruments. We have been known to say; "If you bring us the tuning peg, we can rebuild the instrument that it fits". While no one has ever taken us up on that offer, we have done some highly complex restorations that come rather close to that description.

Many noteworthy professional musicians have chosen Jordan Music Services for repairs including:
