What can you expect from Southeast Guitar Repair Academy?

Guitar Repair Academy is an online course that will teach you the repair side of Lutherie. We'll teach you the expert techniques the luthiers of Southeast Guitar Repair have used over the past 25 years. From refrets to our signature "Southeast Setup", we'll let you in on all of our trade secrets...

 We created a repeatable system at Southeast Guitar Repair to train our techs to master our repair techniques. Now, that same system is available to you-our students!

Our repair shop- Southeast Guitar Repair is a world renowned Guitar Repair Shop. We are one of C.F. Martin's busiest Authorized Warranty Service Centers. And the only one in the Atlanta area. We teach the same techniques we use for Martin, Fender & Gibson Warranty repairs. If you are hesitant of our reputation, please call any one of those manufacturers to verify our decades of flawless repairs for them. We teach you industry standard repair processes so one day you can apply to become service providers for those manufacturers. Our repair processes are tried and true and approved by so many manufacturers. We have over 25 years of business and we cycle through 150 guitars every 2 weeks. No shortage of expertise here! We have mastered every repair possible. 



 Our Course Is Comprised Of 2 Sections:


The first section is our Core Curriculum. This section contains all of the basic repair lessons that teach Restrings, Setups, Hand Carved Bone Nuts, Hand Carved Bone Saddles, Fret Dresses and the day to day jobs you will see most often in a repair shop or music store. We teach you these on multiple types of guitars such as Acoustic Guitars, Electric Guitars, Floyd Rose Styles, Classical Guitars, Bass Guitars and everything in between.


Section 2 is where you will find all of our Live Repair Webinars. The webinar section of the course is where we teach more advanced repairs like refrets, brace repairs, bridge resets, heat treatments, headstock breaks, finish work, electronics diagnostics, custom wiring and all of our restoration jobs. We add at least 1 new lesson every week. We also teach you warranty repairs for the leading manufacturers in the webinar section.


Our online course gives you the opportunity to be part of so many repairs. Your classroom is our Guitar Shop. You will see every type of repair imaginable! The problem solving you are going to learn with us, is not comparable to any repair school or course any where else! Guitar Repair is very unpredictable.  You can see 100 different issues during a Setup. During our live repair video each week, you are going to see us run into those issues- LIVE! No editing out a buzzy fret, you learn exactly what to do when you come across these different scenarios. A classroom will not allow you to see these pop up issues. We will get you ready for real scenarios you are bound to run into at some point in your career. Our course is jam packed with so much value! 


Our Guitar Repair Course is 100% online. Learn at your own pace and on your own timeline from the convenience of your home, anywhere in the world. We even have students in Canada & Europe.

What makes us different?

If you are questioning why pay for a course when you can get free videos on Youtube or pay for a $20 Setup course, I'll explain what makes our course different and worth investing in. There is so much misinformation on Youtube. We cringe most times we watch a guitar repair video there. Rarely we come across someone that gives full correct information. We wouldn't have put countless hours into this course if quality information was already available on YouTube for free. Youtube is filled with fancy cut & edits and really nice camera tricks. We are raw and real time. We show real client repairs in true time. And the best part is, we are not familiar with the instruments (they are not our personal guitars). So when you see us master that guitar in real time, you learn real problem solving skills. And the extra value of the course comes during the webinars. These are jam packed with so much information and support! Is your Youtuber actually doing any Setups for paying clients? Or is he creating content to generate Ad revenue? Our clients pay us over & over to do this same setup. We have online reviews all over the internet. Our clients rave over our setups and repair work! Our entire guitar shop uses the same specs to produce the perfect Setup- the "Southeast Setup". And now you get the opportunity to learn our secret tried & true techniques. Our classroom is right in our busy Guitar Shop. We have hundreds of guitars brought in every month. We are the expert in the Guitar Repair industry.

Curious about what it's like to work in a Guitar Repair Shop?

We enjoy working on guitars all day. You never know who is going to be your next client. We meet some great people from all walks of life. We get to play on every model of guitar you can think of. Its a pretty sweet gig! You will definitely have no shortage of people wanting to chat you up whenever you mention you are a Luthier! Better than being stuck in an office all day.
