My brother used to play guitar in a band, and spent a lot of his time hanging
out at a guitar shop that also did repairs. I recall a pricelist taped to the
service counter (amounts from memory and out of date, but you get the idea):
Repair Rates by the Hour
$20 Standard rate
$40 If you watch
$60 If you help
$100 If you already tried to fix it yourself
