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, etc

Can rewind broken or unsatisfactory pickups. Our handwound guitar pickups sound great.

Squealing pickups can be fixed by wax potting, where the squeal is 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.

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



Mid fret leveling with all the files out. This photo shows the last few frets to be crowned.

See in the photo above how flat the last frets are. The top of these frets must be brought to a point for the guitar to intonate properly. Then its on to removing the scratches and polishing, for that effortless guitar playing feel.

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.

A video showing briefly the fixing of a crack between the back and sides of a made in Japan Ibanez acoustic guitar. First carefully filled with superglue and clamped with light weight clamps, then any remaining gaps are filled again with superglue. When it is fully dry excess glue is scraped off to a level surface. Very fine sandpaper is used for the last of the leveling, up to 2000 grit. Moving on to wet sanding with micro mesh and then buffing compound for the final polished finish.

Don’t forget we custom wire guitar, microphone and other audio leads.
