    "If old guitars mean something to you, this is a Must Visit shop. Neal has worked on my '54 D-28, '58 Coronet, '57 Strat, '60 Strat, '64 Hummingbird, '66 Guild Starfire, '68 Ric 360, '59 Country Club, '61 Casino, Neal BUILT my hybrid Srat Tel with all vintage Fender parts '57 - '68... I have been thrilled with every job he's done whether a repair, a sprucing-up, or a modification. Vintage loonies like me are very persnickety about who we let near our gems with screwdrivers, glue, soldering irons... Neal is The Man. Thank you. Rivington's entire team is non-pariel for dead-straight dealings with good humor. One of the joys of living in NYC is there is ALWAYS another guitar shop to patronize. I go to Rivington."

    For amp repairs there is a $50 estimate fee which can then be applied to the repair itself.
