How it works:

Consultation fee - $100

Non-refundable, and applied to invoice if work is accepted.


Once accepted, all Hotrod Shop setups/fretwork, pickup/wiring upgrades, and projects are paid in full at initiation of work. A $50 setup/intonation fee is applied to each guitar having an install/upgrade/project, no exceptions. Hotrod installs/upgrades/projects always take time - patience is key!


Quarter Panel Guitar Co. only perform suped-up Hotrod-type projects and aesthetic transformations - if your guitar is valuable on it's own you may want to think twice. We do not perform restoration to stock condition or vintage restoration, but we can refer you to a restorer we trust!
