My butterscotch blonde '52 reissue Fender Telecaster has some electrical gremlins.  Does anybody have any experience with any local repair shops?  I thought about taking it to Guitar Center but I don't know how gentle they would be with my baby.  I'd rather take it to a local repair shop if possible.  I prefer a shop in midtown, but I'm willing to drive to the suburbs for a good shop.

I've been recommended to try Firey Brothers at 4th and Sheridan.  Has anybody used them?

Does Guitar Center do recording school guitar repairs? I didn't think they did.

Don't think I'd take a 60 year old classic Fender to Guitar Center, if they do repair. They may have some good deals, and some devoted musician employees, but it's a corporate entity, and you will never get the loving care and attention to detail on something so unique as a local business owner whose reputation and livelihood relies on the quality of his work. Corporations just can't offer that.

Steve Hickerson at 13th and Harvard....east side of the street. A great person, reliable, honest, humble. OpenyoureyesTulsa is correct.

Tulsa guitar is the best.  They do really well with vintage instruments.  Firey Bros. is just a gear shop.  They are a great local place to buy gear, but I wouldn't go to them for repair work like that.

I ran into a guitar tech at SPB @ Colony on Saturday who spent the last 12 years in L.A. reworking many celeb guitars. His name is Seth and you can contact him through Hickerson who is kind enough to throw Seth his backlog.

I haven't used him, but that guy's reputation precedes him....and backlog, I heard he has a lot of it Wink

I have been in there for parts though, and he has a lot.

I like to do my own work as much as possible, just out of curiousity and for the chat, what kind of problems you have?

Don't know much about the place- but on Admiral just west of 73rd street there is a guitar shop, it's across the street from DollarTree. They seem prerry busy, and popular. I don't know anything about guitars but they work on them..

You are thinking of Guitar House of Tulsa. Cardinal Bob started the place back in 1964 and it was always a great place to buy a guitar, take lessons, etc. Bob sold the place a couple of years ago, though.

Hey guys sorry I know this is an old post, but I saw Steve Hickerson mentioned here and wanted to let you know he has started his own shop.  I thought any other musicians stumbling upon this page like I did might appreciate the info.

They are over by Ziegler's  www.gtstulsa.com
