hey Bobby ~ you around today ?

GuitarFixer Bob is the place to come for repairs, lessons and vintage, new and used guitars, parts a He opened the Seymour store in 2010.

GuitarFixerBob will be on vacation Thurs May 18th to Weds May 31 Open June 1st Thank You


GuitarFixer Bob will be closed Thursday, March 2 and Friday, March 3. Call Bob at 203-927-9975 if you need assistance.


GuitarFixer Bob has fought off his turkey coma and is busy working in the store today. We are open until 6 tonight and will be open from 10 to 6 tomorrow for Small Business Saturday. We hope you can come down and support local businesses!
And - despite the signs that were posted prematurely - you are able to park on Main Street in Seymour today and tomorrow until 11 p.m.

Can't believe we have to post this but:
The Seymour Christmas parade is Sunday and someone at the Seymour Police Department decided to get a head start on the parking ban, posting the signs Wednesday morning. The original signs did not include those so-visible little add ons at the bottom, telling people the ban is only effective after 11 p.m. Saturday.
When a fellow merchant called to complain, they were allegedly told everyone in Seymour knew the parade wasn't until Sunday so the signs wouldn't chase any customers away.
Because apparently no one who lives outside of Seymour comes here to shop! Particularly not on the day after Thanksgiving - what's it called again? You know, the day the news people make a big deal about because everyone breaks down doors to buy stuff? And my goodness, no one will want to shop on Saturday. Just calling it Small Business Saturday and having American Express sponsor and promote it is no reason to expect that people will actually - horrors - shop at local retailers!
Ok - we're done with the exclamation points and sarcasm.
The Seymour Police (who up to now have been helpful and responsive to our business needs) have "fixed" the sign problem (hope they didn't run out of printer ink), and even reached out to let us know what they were doing.
The point is GuitarFixer Bob will be open from 11 to 6 on Friday and 10 to 6 on Saturday, and you will be able to park on the street and in the lot.
And the Seymour Police Department will be opening a side hustle in effective sign creation (hey, how about that - we weren't quite done with the sarcasm after all! Or the exclamation points).

GuitarFixer Bob will be closed for vacation from Saturday, September 24 to Thursday, October 13. For very important guitar-related business. Yep, that's why. Absolutely not to go drink beer in Munich and eat our way around several European countries. Nope, not that at all.

Four Businesses Destroyed by Fire in Downtown Seymour, Asbestos Decontamination Underway 04/23/2022

GuitarFixer Bob was lucky - no damage at all and we only had to close for about a day.

The fire in downtown Seymour has not damaged GuitarFixer Bob but the store will be closed for the rest of today and likely tomorrow. Power is out on the block and we don't know when it will come back on. Our thoughts are with our friends and neighbors who were not as fortunate. And our thanks to the Seymour Fire Department and the other first responders for their skill and commitment to our community.
Please email [email protected] or call 203-927-9975 with any questions.


GuitarFixer Bob will be closed Saturday, April 9. And, beginning this Tuesday, April 5, the store will be closed on Tuesdays for at least the next few months so Bob can catch up with repairs. Please call 203-881-0077 or email [email protected] with any questions.

Just a little reminder of what's available in the store. In case you're wondering what to get yourself as a reward for (almost) making it through 2021.


Come on in tomorrow to Shop Small 2021!


Can't believe it's almost that time of year again! Come on it to see what we've got in stock. Buy local and avoid shipping and supply-chain delays!

It's been a while since we've shared any shop inventory photos, so let's fix that with some cool guitars. (Dare we say it's a Strat-tastic Saturday? No? Ok).
First, a 1979 Fender Stratocaster Hardtail. Obvious condition issues - the black is peeling and cracking. In what seems like a wild understatement, Fender had some problems with finishes in the late 70s! All original parts and plays and sounds great. Bob refretted it in the 90s for the current owner; it comes with the original hard-shell case.
The other is a 1986 Jackson DKNY (Dinky) Stratocaster, made in San Dimas, California (Mrs. GuitarFixer Bob said "oh, you mean where Bill and Ted are from? and got a blank look back). Color is a bluey-greeny gunmetal, and it has original Jackson pickups and original Kahler tremolo. There are 2 chips and some belt scratches on the back but otherwise it's in terrific condition. Comes with a non-original hard-shell case.


GuitarFixer Bob is going to be closed tomorrow so Bob can go fishing. He will be in the store Monday, if anyone needs any assistance.


Cases of COVID-19 are thankfully on the decline, and the state of Connecticut has updated its mask guidance to allow those who are vaccinated to remove their masks in some indoor settings.

However, the choice is up to individual businesses and we are choosing to continue to require that anyone coming into GuitarFixer Bob wear a mask - at least for now.

We have a small store so social distancing is not really possible. We also recognize that there is still a chance of passing COVID along to someone who is not vaccinated or is not able to be vaccinated. To protect our customers and ourselves, we will continue to wear masks and disinfect surfaces regularly.

Thank you for your support and cooperation.


GuitarFixer Bob will be closed today but we expect to re-open tomorrow. If you need to reach Bob today, please call 203-927-9975.


GuitarFixer Bob will only be open 10am to 12noon Sat


Bob is still trying to get caught up with his repair work so GFB will be closed Tuesdays for the near future, beginning this Tuesday, April 20 (timing is coincidental, officers, we promise).
Please call or email if you have questions.


Whew. It's getting crowded in here! GuitarFixer Bob is going to be closed Tuesday, March 9, and Tuesday, March 16 so he can work on repairs. Please email or call if you have any questions.


GuitarFixer Bob Will Open At 3pm Tue & Wed Thanks


GuitarFixer Bob will close at 3 p.m. on Dec. 31 - he and Mrs. GuitarFixer Bob need time to symbolically burn a 2020 calendar to start 2021 off on the right foot.
We will re-open Saturday, Jan. 2 at 10 a.m.

Ornaments make great gifts! We've got pewter Strand Theater ornaments for sale ($15, cash only, all proceeds go to the theater) as well as a variety of musical instrument ornaments and magnets for the music-lover in your life (various prices, credit cards accepted).


GuitarFixer Bob is open today from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. for Small Business Saturday or, as Mrs. GuitarFixer Bob insists on calling it - "Buy a vintage guitar for that someone special in your life (hint - it could be yourself) Saturday."


GuitarFixer Bob is open today until 6 and will be open from 10 to 6 tomorrow, Small Business Saturday.
2020 continues to be a challenge for everyone, including small businesses like ours. We appreciate your continued support.


GuitarFixer Bob is going to close at 3 p.m. today. He will re-open Tuesday at 11 a.m.

GuitarFixer Bob is always happy to welcome musicians of all kinds - professional, amateur, enthusiast, avian ...
Just this week, the store hosted a vocal professional who was thinking about adding an instrument to his/her repertoire. Our guest checked out some amps and a wall of electric guitars (and loved the mirrored slat board from Brian Guitars in New Haven) before hopping over to look at picks and string winders. A couple of hours later - after a few bits of cracker and some water - s/he apparently decided to stick with chirping and hopped out the door!
Bob followed his guest out and saw him/her fly across the street into a bush.


Awful fire in downtown Seymour this afternoon. We were very lucky - no one was hurt. It was a few buildings down from GuitarFixer Bob and the Strand Theater, and there was no damage to the store or theater.
A transformer down the street blew about 2 hours before the fire started so we didn't have power. We don't know when it will be back, so will be closed until then. You can call Bob at 203-927-9975 or email [email protected].
Many thanks to all the first responders, including Seymour, Beacon Falls, Oxford, Bethany and Ansonia. And to the very generous Knights of Columbus Aurora Council 53, for putting out cold drinks and snacks for the first responders!

By request - the El Degas is a mid-1970s with a bolt on neck with a recent grind and polish (by GFB). Impeccable condition, all original parts and a hard shell case.

Mrs. GuitarFixer Bob put her foot down as the date for re-opening got closer and demanded a reorganization and junk reduction to go along with the cleaning. Check out the results!
