Services we can offer


 If you have a problem with your instrument and you're not sure what it is, give me a call, in most cases I'll be able to help you.

From replacing a screw, chasing and eradicting a buzz, repairing a broken neck or replacing a severely damaged front, I can bring your instrument back into a condition that will enable you to play again with the confidence that your instrument is in the best condition possible.
I am always happy to examine any instrument, without obligation, and often, what may appear to be beyond repair can quickly be restored so that we can soon have you up and playing again.
When you bring your instrument to the workshop I'll point out any problems to you, discuss the possibilities and, in most cases, tell you how much it will cost and how long it will be before the work is completed.
