Fender Rhodes Piano Restoration
The Fender Rhodes piano is a seemingly simple yet deceptively complex instrument to properly restore without professional knowledge and experience. The first step in any servicing or restoration project is the initial assessment of the various parts and tolerances necessary to achieve a high quality instrument.
Retro Rentals & Restorations offers a free comprehensive assessment, covering all major facets of the Rhodes, for any new client proceeding with our recommended repairs. For those desiring a full assessment in order to perform their own repair or restoration, all recommendations including a parts list will be made for a fee of $195. A digital assessment via submitted photos is also available.
