We have two dedicated repairmen on site to deal with all guitar and bass repairs. We do setups, restorations and rebuilds on vintage and new instruments as well as nut and saddle replacements (Bone, Graphite, Tusq, Corian and Plastic), fret re-profiling and full re-frets, custom circuitry, pickup replacements and structural repairs including headstock breaks, crack repairs and bridge re-gluing.

We also have an excellent working knowledge of pickups for both electric and acoustic instruments. We can perform rewinds and remags on electric guitar pickups and are an L.R.Baggs preferred dealer, meaning we sell all L.R.Baggs products and are fully qualified in fitting them. You also receive a 5-year extended warranty when we fit the pickup for you, which we do for free!

We also have a number of excellent out of house amp repairmen who can deal with any valve or transistor amp, pedal and effects unit issues you may have.

We charge £45 per hour plus any parts. There are no standing charges for particular jobs – we take each guitar in on an individual basis and treat it as such. We are as honest and transparent as we can be when evaluating your instrument so there are no surprise charges.
