Repair

 

I operate a full repair service that covers set ups, truss rod adjustment, fret levelling, rewiring electrics, pickup installation and much more. Repairs for other kinds of instruments beyond guitars are also possible. Please contact for more information or to make an appointment. You can also view my latest repairs pricing list below as a guide to the cost of a specific repair:

'Bronze' set-up - £75

 

Includes truss rod adjustment, action set, fingerboard cleaned and oiled. For Floyd Rose-equipped guitars add £15. Installation of Martin strings available at £10 for folk guitars, Savarez Argentine strings at £16 for Selmer-Maccaferri style instruments, or Rotosound at £10 for electric guitars. 

'Silver' set-up - £120

 

For greatly improved playability. As above, plus frets levelled, recrowned, and mirror polished. Fret ends smoothed and

polished for extra comfort. 

'Gold' set-up - £195

 

For a complete refresh of your fingerboard. Worn or uneven frets removed and new frets installed, levelled, crowned and mirror polished as above. Option of changing to a different gauge of fret wire. +£30 extra for bound fingerboards. 

'Platinum' set-up - £265

 

For ultimate playability, choose this option if you are looking for the highest level of comfort. New frets installed to match your preferences, complete with hemispherical fret ends, the smoothest against your hands when moving up and down the neck. Also dramatically reduces the discomfort caused by fingerboard shrinkage caused by humidity changes.
