Kovacik Guitars and Fretted Instrument Repair was founded in 1995 by luthier Steven Kovacik, who has been building and repairing guitars since 1986. The focus of the shop operation is the building and repair of flat top acoustic guitars, but the shop also offers repair and complete restoration services on vintage and collectible guitars. Steve Kovacik is also a CF Martin Authorized Warranty Repair Service agent. Vintage instrument appraisal service is available. Kovacik Guitars frequently has vintage guitars, guitar parts, luthier materials and guitar kits in stock for sale and can handle the sale of your vintage guitar on a commission basis.
