Repair/Restore Your Instrument in Albuquerque, NM

At age 14, Lorenzo Pimentel began apprenticing at his brother's guitar shop in Mexico. In 1948, he used his acquired skills to create Pimentel & Sons Guitars. Over the last 60 years, we have refined and established ourselves as the experts of guitar and stringed instrument repair in Albuquerque, NM.

Along with repairing instruments, we do complete restorations. Restorations often come in the way of family heirlooms and antique finds. After acquiring these instruments, you may think of them as only keepsakes, or something to put a shelf. We want to take these old instruments and restore them to their full use. There's nothing like playing on a violin or guitar that's been in the family for generations, and we want you to experience that.
