Set-Up / Repair Jobs

We offer a range of individual set-up jobs, all of which are equally important in order to have your guitar playing at its absolute best.

If you've an old guitar with a lot of fret wear, or one pesky fret that's higher than the rest, you may want to consider a fret lowering/dressing. This involves levelling off the frets either in the affected area or across the entire neck in order to get all the strings playing how they should. We need to see the guitar in person in order to give an accurate quote, so just pop in!

If you find that your guitar sounds out of tune the further up the neck you play, then your intonation may need setting up. Make sure to do this before recording!

 

If you find that notes are choking out and are confident that you have no high frets, you may need the truss rod in your neck adjusting.

We can make any acoustic guitar in to an electro-acoustic by installing a piezo pickup under the bridge. So whether you have a favourite acoustic that you're dying to perform with, or you're tired of using a separate microphone for your guitar at gigs, this could be your answer!

Cleaning

No-one likes a filthy guitar! Dirt can not only look nasty and seriously affect your swagger, it can also get inside your guitar and begin to affect the electrics as well.

 

Crackly pots and poor connections can really interfere with practice, gigs and recording so be sure to get them checked out.

 

Bring your guitar to us and we'll have it looking and sounding as good as new!

Restrings

Many people underestimate just how quickly strings can begin to get dirty and lose their tonal qualities, so it's really important to change your strings regularly.

 

Strings are available from £5.99 for most stringed instruments, however bass strings start from £14.99.

 

You will receive your instrument with strings fully stretched out and tuned. Restrings start at £5.00 depending on the guitar.

Piezo Installation ................. £40.00 + Pickup

This includes balancing the pickup - an essential process that ensures that each string has an equal volume.

There's nowt worse than having an extra loud B string and a D string that might as well not even be there!

Note: Add £10.00 to all prices for 12-string guitars and guitars with a

Floyd Rose tremolo system - they can take a while!

We also have a £10.00 surcharge for any urgent, same-day jobs as they'll need to skip the queue and keep others waiting!
