Guitar Maintenance

Get your guitar to play at its optimum


1. Restring and set up.  In this service I shall check the relief in the neck is correct, tighten machine heads, check intonation is correct, polish the frets and fingerboard. Cost £20. This includes top quality d'addario strings. For Elixir strings its £30. The price is the same for electric and acoustic guitars.

2. Re-soldering inputs and volume and tone pots. Prices start from £15.  For some guitars it would be worth having the guitar restrung at the same time.

3. Restring Classical guitar. I would recommend d'addario Pro arte strings. They give fantastic projection and hold their tune well. £20  For student guitars I would recommend Augustine strings cost for this £15.

4. Resting Bass guitar and set up.  In this service I shall check the relief in the neck is correct, tighten machine heads, check intonation is correct, polish the frets and fingerboard.  Cost £40.   This includes top quality Ernie ball strings.

For other repairs please feel free to contact me if I cannot help I can always refer you to a suitable luthier.

Home collection and delivery service is available (additional charges).

Customer testimonial

Quotes I recently purchased a new guitar that looked great out of the box but didn't play well. Peter picked up the guitar and swiftly returned it a different instrument, I am delighted with the excellent set-up he gave it. Quotes
