A regular customer brought in his Ibanez for a setup with drop b tuning, as usual he left happy.

This Epiphone Les Paul came in with a crackling jack and in need of a fret dressing. The customer was delighted.

This Gibson Les Paul came in for a setup and a good clean, it left looking and playing fantastic.

A regular customer brought in his 1987 USA Fender Stratocaster for a fret dressing and a setup.

A new customer got in touch, he wanted both these acoustics setting up and turning in to electro acoustics. So we agreed on Seymour Duncan Woody Custom pickups in both. They sound and play amazing.

This Westfield came in for a setup and to put some green strings on. The customer was delighted.

A new customer contacted me complaining that his Felix Strat kept cutting out when playing. After taking it to two local guitar techs he was no further forward as they couldn't find what was wrong with it. I gave it a full re wire and now its working perfectly.

A guy got in touch wanting his Vintage acoustic action lowering so it was easier to play. Again I have another happy customer.

Another regular customer brought in these two guitars for setups. The 1st is a Fender USA Telecaster and the other is a Yamaha LLX16 acoustic.

This Epiphone Les Paul came in for a fret dressing and a pickup upgrade to Gibson humbuckers and a full rewire with all new pots and switches. The customer was delighted with the transformation.

Another regular customer brought in his Martin & Co. Eric Clapton accoustic for the action to be lowered. gain he was very happy with the work I did. This is a lovely guitar!!

A new customer got in touch, he was after a setup on his Fender Jaguar. After using other local guitar tech's, he came to me and has said it's the best guitar setup he has ever had!!

This next customer had a similar idea to me on my last job. He bought a Telecaster style body and neck and bought Fender hardware and Seymour duncan pickups. He brought it to me to put it all together and wire it up. He also wanted all the cavities copper shielding.

This is one of my custom guitars. I bought a Fender USA Custom shop neck, A Mighty Mite body and all Fender parts apart from the pickups, which i decided to try some Tonerider Hot Classics. The guitar plays and sound fantastic. Another great addition to my growing guitar collection.

This next customer wanted the frets on hi Schecter as low as possible so the action could be too. He was really pleased witrh the results.

A new customer got in touch, his Gibson Les Paul was in need of a fret repair as the frets were badly indented. They now look as good as new.

This next customer brought in his Yamaha Pacifca with a loose nut and he also wanted the standard bridge humbucker replacing with an Ibanez Super 70 humbucker. Now with the nut fixed, the new humbucker and a setup, the customer was really pleased with the work I did.

A guy got in touch, he had this Flambeau Acoustic with the nut crumbling away. Now with a new bone nut it's playing great again. The customer was delighted.

A new customer brought in his ESP for a setup. It left playing really nicely.

This next customer brought in his fake Chinese Gibson for a fret dressing. The frets look as good as new.

This next customer brought in his Les Paul guitar in desperate need of some tlc. The pickup covers were broken, one of the volume knobs was missing and it was in much need of a setup. Now the guitar is looking and playing great.

Again this next customer took advantage of the pickup and drop off service. He had a Yamaha acoustic and after problems with another local guitar tech, he got in touch with me. He wanted the action lowering on his guitar and lighter strings. Again, as always, I have another happy customer.

A new customer took advantage of my pickup and drop off service and I lowered the action on his retirement present, A Martin acoustic. He was delighted with the whole service.

Again another returning customer brought in his Gibson Les Paul with a damaged nut. I fitted a new Tusq nut, gave it a setup and now it is playing great again.

Another returning customer who brought in his Fender Stratocaster complaining that the neck pickup wasn't working and it was in need of a setup. After inspecting I noticed that the pickup was faulty so I replaced it and gave the guitar a setup and now it's playing amazing again. 

This next job I really enjoyed, it was for a returning customer. He had bought a 1976 Fender Strat and brought it to me as it wasn't working. When I opened it up I noticed that at least two, if not all of the pickups had been replaced with unknown pickups. The wiring and soldering was probably the worst I have seen with all the pots and switch in a bad way. So I replaced all the electrics, re wired it fully including the jack and all earth wires and put in a set of Fender Custom Shop 57-62 pickups. After a setup, the guitar is now playing and sounding how a vintage Fender should. The customer was delighted.

Another regular customer brought in his Charvel guitar complaining of really bad popping and crackling. After inspecting I realised it was the jack, it had corroded and the contact points were all worn. Now with a new jack and after a setup, it's playing nicely.

This next guy brought in his Tanglewood guitar as the pickguard was coming away. Now with a new pickguard, it looks as good as new.

This next guy brought in his Epiphone bass with a few issues. The bridge kept popping out under the pressure from the strings, the jack wasn't wired properly casuing earthing issues and the neck had a massive bow in it. Now all these issues are sorted the customer was delighted.

This next customer got in touch saying his grandkids have broke his Maya acoutic guitar. All the pegs were snapped off and the top was badly scratched. Now with new pegs and the top re finished the customer was delighted with my work. 

A guy got in touch complaining that his Fender Telecaster Deluxe wasn't working and also wanting a setup. When I had a look at the electrics I noticed a wire had come loose. So after re soldering, it was working perfectly again. Another happy customer. 

A guy got in touch wanting a fret repair on his Mexican Fender Strat, he left over the moon with the work I did.

A returning customer brought in his Taylor acoustic wanting the action lowering, Again he left pleased.

A friend brought in this Ibanez for a setup, he was delighted with it.

This next customer brought in his EKO 12 string acoustic guitar for a setup and a restring.

This Aria Pro 335 came in for a setup and left playing perfectly.

Another returning customer brought in this 7 string Schecter for a setup. This was a lovely guitar and again the customer left happy.

This new customer brought in his Fender Strat for a fret repair and a setup. The frets were in a poor state.  After the work the customer was so pleased with the work I did, he has recently brought in another guitar to work on.

A guy brought in his Hagstrom bass guitar in complaining that the string height was too high and was difficult to play. After a setup the guitar was much better and the customer left really pleased.

This next customer I met at a party. He has a Vintage SG which was in desperate need of a setup and some tlc. As you can see from the pics, it came in in an awful state and left looking like new. The customer was delighted.

A young lad got in in touch, he has a ESP SG guitar and he plays with the tuning b f# b e b d# which if anyone has tried this style of tuning is really flat to your normal style of tuning. This was causing him serious fret buzz and some notes further up the neck just wouldn't play. So after a long setup of tweaking and adjusting the string height, I got it playable and sounding good. Another happy customer.

This next customer brought in two guitars for a setup and a fret repair on the Les Paul. The first is a Fender Strat and the second is a Gibson Les Paul Studio. Both left in great condition and the customer has already been in touch wanting more work doing.

This next cusomer brought in his Freshman acoustic wanting the action lowering, the action was very high.  He left happy as usual.

This next guitar was amazing. I have always loved Eric Clapton growing up as a kid and he is one of my favourite guitarists. So the get in a Fender Strat "Blackie" really put a smile on my face. The customer wasn't happy with the Fender Lace Sensor pickups and wanted some Fender custom shop 54 pickups.
