On completion you will receive an email and a text to let you know that your instrument is ready for collection.

We realise that you’re going to need to try your instrument at home to really know whether we’ve got hings spot on. So once you’ve collected your instrument you still have a two month warranty period for any little tweaks you might want.

Professional, personal and friendly service.

We do them really old style guitars too. 6 string lute, we think, but then what is in a name, in from @thersc for on going maintenance and a bone saddle which we carved to be castellated (seemed appropriate). Asides from removing and replacing the baroque style rosette, it was alot of fun.

The challenge: Can anyone tell us what R&R on the back of this 1963 @fender Stratocaster stands for? We've seen a few of these now under the original finish so it would appear to be factory done. As yet we've not had a definitive answer, so, over to you...

Lefty @epiphone Lucille conversion inc. partial refin completed today. Controls swapped and old holes touched in, old back plate filled re-carved, touched in and new one intsalled, full @gibsonguitar spec electronics installation plus @seymourduncanpickups Alnico II pickups, original spec varitone, switchcraft switch and jacks, cts pots, sprague orange drop caps, set-up and @thomastikinfeld flats. Really pleased with how well the old cavities have hidden on this one despite the poly finish. Even more glad we're finished.

Courtesy of the ever enthusiastic ministrations of one @kttunstall this @gibsonguitar Elvis Dove came in with 5 cracks, 8 broken struts and more dings than we could count. Many hours and gallons of glue later and we're back in action.

They said it could never be done, they said it was a lost cause. Well, we have the technology, we have the capability... Nasty combo of heat and pressure did all sorts of bad things to @yearsandyears mid 1970s @fender jazz bass. Many months of coaxing back together and she lives again!

Told you it wasn't just old stuff! This @danelectro_official Pro Series wasn't retro looking enough, so we added a cutaway and a new shape pickguard for some full on 1950's inspired goodness and improved access. Sadly the budget wouldn't stretch to a pair of over size tail fins.

I promise we do work on non vintage guitars too, but we're on a bit of a vintage binge at the mo. @gibsonguitar 1959 Les Paul burst. Enough said really.

Must be getting on for about as rare as it gets with this one. 1958 @gibsonguitar flying V. Probably never work on another one, but at least it went to a home where it'll be played.

Two posts in a day - woop check our Insta skills! 1965 @fender Jaguar all set-up (yeah!) and re-wired (boo!). Bit of vintage 3 tone goodness to brighten up a rainy day.

Keep it simple guys; Two p90s, one wrap around tailpiece and lots of fun. 1957 @gibsonguitar Les Paul in for a set-up.

I think I'll let Maton give you the deets on this mid 20th century beaut...
'A truly remarkable guitar that has been proved superior and remained the choice of 
leading players in Radio and Dance Bands'
Confusing use of the past tense aside, I think this says it all.

1964 @fender Strat going to a new home on Straturday. Great player and such a cool colour, makes me wish I had the money myself. Or any money really.
