Hello Friends! Due to the COVID19 restrictions we have altered our hours. We will also be observing the social distancing guidelines at the shop. No more than one customer at a time (those of you who have been to the shop know we couldn't fit 10 people in there even if we wanted to!) :-) We will be regularly disinfecting all surfaces, door handles etc. We also recommend that you call before coming by to make sure we are open. These are interesting times! We are here to help keep your guitars in good working order while you are at home with ample playing time! :-) We will get through this together. Be well everyone and WASH YOUR HANDS!

General information

Guitars are my passion! I've been tinkering around with them since the age of 15. I do it because it's something that I love to do. My goal is to help you get the most out of your guitar, whether it be a simple setup or a complex neck reset, I can get your guitar playing like new again. I enjoy working with each customer to get their guitar “Just Right”. I can truly say there is nothing I enjoy more than being in my shop getting a setup dialed in just right for one of my customers. As a player myself, I know what a well set up guitar feels like and how important that is to someone when trying to to achieve their magical feel and tone. I treat every guitar as if it were my own and I am dedicated to making sure your guitar is well taken care of. Your guitar will be kept in a climate controlled environment where the humidity in my shop is always kept at 50%. I stock a vast supply of parts and accessories to fulfill all of your guitar repair needs. Pots, Capacitors, Pickups, Strings, Tuning Machines, K***s, Pickguards, Bridges, Tremolo Systems..... you name it! At Union Street Guitar Works you can be sure that you are dealing with someone who is committed to your satisfaction. I am always happy to answer your questions and provide the finest service possible. All repairs are guaranteed, so if you are not 100% satisfied with a setup or repair, just bring it back! Thank you for visiting - I look forward to seeing you in the shop! Justin is a proud member of the Guild of American Luthiers.

Another awesome job, a neck pickup in my Esquire...now a Telecaster! Thanks Justin, perfect 100% cool man!!!
Works outstanding...another great job Justin. My 97 Blueshawk is a monster of tone and your set up and mods on her are perfect. Thanks man!!!
Another excellent job...my 2003 Epiphone Zephyr Regent needed a new tone pot and a set up. She's back home and perfect...Thanks again Justin for a job well done...
Justin did another awesome job for me. This time it was a total rework of a CIJ 51 P-Bass to vintage specs. 100% perfect. Thanks Justin, this bass is a bluz monster!
Great job on my brother-in-laws Tele Justin. 5 starts man, thanks for the help on this build.
Justin did an awesome job of resetting the necks on both my Taylors!
To celebrate our milestone of 800+ likes, we’re going to share the love for 8 days! DAY 5: We love our Guitar Makers & Customizers!!! Keith Newport is one of Kris’s dearest childhood blues guitar teachers, has made some phenomenal acoustic guitars. Many are adorned with Brazilian rosewood, and they have huge sound projection. Gary Henson has made tons of fabulous custom electric body guitars. He even paints them, too! But we thought this tiger striped body was just too pretty to paint. Richard Szymczyk comes from a long line of wood workers. He not only makes a great guitar but is also an amazing artist as well! He has hand painted numerous acoustic instruments with gorgeous color swirls. We can’t wait to own one some day, but in the mean time we are honored to call Richard our friend! Union Street Guitar Works is our hero!!! Justin really is the best when it comes to fine-tuning, modifying, or repairing a guitar! We’ve had Justin repair bridges, install acoustic pickups, and so much more! Go visit his shop in Occoquan for all your guitar needs! 💗 So technically, Kevin Petitt is an award-winning motorcycle painter, but he is also one of Kris’s best friends and we are very lucky to have several guitars painted by Kevin! They are just GORGEOUS! The green Tele has been a staple in our line up for as long as we’ve been together as a band! Thank you Guitar friends - we love you!!!
Shoutout to Justin for awesome work installing an Audere preamp in my jazz bass!
Thanks Justin for doing, once again, great work on my Esquire. It rawks!
any problem with my bass..Union st is where i go.. haven't had a problem and never have been disappointed.....when others say they can't..UNION SAYS...." THEY CAN!!".....OK THATS MY SLOGAN...I WANT ROYALTIES IF IT STICKS...( lol!!).....keep up the good work!
Once again, great work...I had Justin install a K&K pickup in my Martin, as well as some other mods, and all's perfect. She jams great, sounds great, looks great....thanks so much and see you soon for some Esquire work....
