Gladesville Guitar Factory

Guitar Factory Gladesville originally started in the early sixties as a guitar repair business known as DeKroo Bros Music. It was one of the few guitar repair shops in Sydney and did work for major retailers such as Nicholsons, Palings and Landis Music as well as wholesalers such as Yamaha Australia and CBS who were the Fender distributors at the time. Up to a dozen Fenders would go through the workshop each week as resprays for CBS. The business changed hands in the early seventies and the name was changed to Guitar Factory. There are many name dropping anecdotes to be had, notably Vanda and Young dumping loads of assorted guitars in varying states of disrepair and a (young) Malcolm Young having his now famous Gretsch passing periodically across the workbench. The retailing side of the business expanded over the years but Guitar Factory Gladesville has continued to maintain a renowned in-house repair service.
