Jeff White

Philadelphia-based musician, guitar tech, and audio engineer


The Port Richmond Guitar Spa is a guitar repair shop that I run out of my home in Philadelphia, PA that specializes in the setup, repair, and customization of electric and acoustic guitars, basses, and lap steels. I've spent the past 20 years working on my own, friends', and bandmates' instruments and decided to offer my expertise to the public beginning in 2014.

My goal is to offer exceptional work, quick turn-around times, and friendly service for working musicians in the Philadelphia area. My clients include national and international touring acts, local and regional touring bands, aspiring hobbyists, as well as students of all ages.

If your instrument requires a setup or repair, or if you want to upgrade your pickups, electronics, tuners, add a Bigsby, etc, please feel free to contact me here.
