String Change & Clean

  • Remove old strings.
  • Visual inspection.
  • Clean Fretboard.
  • Oil fretboard (where appropriate for wood type).
  • Install new strings.
  • Tune to pitch/stretch strings.

A good setup is important in helping your guitar play the best it can.

It should be thought of as the foundation for good playability and is your guitars "MOT"

Includes everything under the "String Change & Clean" service plus:

  • *Truss Rod Adjustment.
  • **Bridge/Tremolo Adjustment.
  • Set Intonation.
  • Lubricate contact points.
  • Check frets and advise if further fret work required.
  • Adjust action (set action against the highest fret).
  • *Re-slot nut.
  • Clean electronics.

Fret Level, Crown & Polish

One of the best ways to improve overall playability is with a fret level, crown and polish.

  • The neck is straightened via the truss rod.
  • Frets are then levelled with a precision ground flat sanding beam.
  • Following this they are re-profiled/re-crowned before polishing to a high shine.
  • Price also includes a full setup.

Price - £100

A full re-fret may be needed if your frets are just too worn to be levelled any further.

Maybe you don't like the size/feel of the fretwire you have on your guitar.

You can also have the fretboard levelled during this operation if there is any unevenness on it and undertake small fretboard repairs such as dealing with dents/nicks

  • Frets removed
  • Board levelled (if needed and customer requests...additional charge for Maple if re-finishing required)
  • Fretwire pre-radiused to match fretboard
  • Install new frets
  • Level, crown and polish
  • Price also includes a full setup

Price - Nickel wire - £175

- Bound fretboard - Extra £50 (binding "nibs" would be removed if they exist)
- Stainless steel wire - Extra £75
- Excludes cost of strings. I can provide for an additional £5

Bone or Graph Tech Nut

The guitar nut is one of the most important but often overlooked parts of a Guitar.

A new nut can make significant improvements to tuning stability and intonation.

It may just be that it has worn down over the years and you are starting to get fret buzz at the first fret.

I find both Bone and Graph Tech "Tusq" two of the best materials

Price - £50
