    Any electronic issue can be fixed. We can replace or refurbish scratchy pots, dodgy jacks, noisy circuits, broken pickups can be rewound. Call us for a quote.

    Have a look at this page for ideas on hardware and electronic upgrades.

    Fret issues resolved. Fret level, full or partial refret and fret dress for a smooth playing guitar.

    Cracks in acoustic soundboards fixed, sound posts set. New bone nut or saddle, piezo installations, intonation

    All stringed instruments; electric, acoustic, bass, ukuleles, mandolins, banjos, etc

    While we have the strings off we clean and condition the fingerboard with lemon oil, clean and polish frets for a smoother playing guitar.

    The top of frets are brought to a point for the guitar to intonate properly. We remove scratches and polish the frets for that effortless guitar playing feel.

    We rewind broken or unsatisfactory pickups. Our hand wound guitar pickups sound great.

    Squealing pickups can be fixed by wax potting. The squeal can be caused by feedback within a loose unwaxed coil. We use a mix of Irish bees wax and paraffin wax for potting. A nice upgrade.

    If something terrible happens your guitar take it to us. You’d be surprised what can be fixed.

    Our aim is to get a guitar or bass set up to perfection; a conditioned fingerboard, polished frets with the perfect string and fretboard relief. Always plays nicer and sounds better.

    Don’t forget we custom wire guitar, microphone and other audio leads. We hand wind all pickups and build guitars and basses too. Our leads sound better, and last.
