Welcome to Instrument Repair of La Crosse
I have been working on guitars for over 40 years. I have repaired/setup guitars from famous rock stars to the guy who plays on 3rd and Pearl here in LaCrosse. I run a friendly little shop, no sales pressure. In fact my shop sells only used and vintage guitars. Bring my dog to work, drink lots of coffee and you might find me jamming away when you walk in. Stop in when you are in town!
1216 South 3rd St, La Crosse, WI
Excellent negotiator! Friendly and excellent customer service! Will do business with again!
Jimbo is fantastic! His prices are reasonable if not lower than any other shop around and always has a great story to tell! 5 stars and 3 thumbs up!
Jimbo Zill is an expert instrument repairman! 30+ years experience. He can fix about anything you toss his way. He fixed a fairly high dollar pickup in my guitar, that came broken from the factory! I thought I was going to have to shell out more $$ to replace it. Nope, he fixed it. Restrung my guitar too. Now it sounds like it should. Reasonable prices. I live in Madison but take my instrument repairs to him in LaCrosse! BTW: he's also great guitarist!
Jimbo is an extremely talented and impressive guy.
Jimbo is a master of his craft. Flawless repairs and fair prices. He’s always got great gear in his shop too!
Great place. Great people.
Jimbo has refretted my guitars, fixed my amps and, always helped me out with his vast knowledge. There is always a nice , revolving choice of instruments in the store and he is amazing at repair-doing things I thought were impossible....
Great place & atmosphere! Trust me, if something's not right, Jimbo will make it right! Doesn't matter if you're young or old, a beginner or seasoned vet...!
I will always, from any point on the globe, first consult IRL and James Zill on instrument repair, refurbishment, or before dropping a load of cash on an obscure find...
Jimbo has always taken great care of me. From a headstock repair to all new electronics in a Les Paul. He has always done great work at a very reasonable price.
Always happy with the quality and service!!! When it needs to be done right and right now Jim is my first choice every time!
I've had nothing but great interactions with Jimbo. Good gear, pro attitude, and really just a fun place to hang and learn. And the repairs... Top notch!
Instrument Repair of La Crosse is the best! Highly recommended to any and all musicians who are in need of a quick and affordable fix!
