Hand carved bone nuts from £30, including fitting.

 In order to obtain the optimum settings for your guitar (on variables such as: string height, bridge height, radius, neck relief, fret condition etc.) and to achieve optimum play-ability of your guitar.... the areas that may need working on are:

- Bone nut carving and fitting with correct width and height slots for your guitar  

 (All nuts include nut juice or graphite, to stop strings from catching in slots. This also aids bending and tremolo pull).  

- Tuner adjustment to achieve optimum function.  

- Truss rod adjustment to correct relief. 

- Bridge Saddle height, intonation and radius adjustment. Floyd Rose style tremolos include balancing. 

- Pickup height, pole height and radius adjustment where necessary. 

- Fret dressing includes identification of loose, raised, worn or uneven frets. Fret levelling, removal of sharp edges, crowning and polishing for silky smooth bends.

- Partial or full re-fret where necessary (various fret widths and heights available). There can even be a width graduation as you move up the neck. 

- Fret board conditioning for porous woods. Lacquered finishes on fret boards can be re-buffed to get a like-new gloss shine if required (not recommended for vintage instruments).

- Electronics clean up includes re-soldering, pot cleaning, cable tidy and component and pickup change where necessary, but excludes price of new components. 


 ☑️  In order to do any type of set up, it is recommended that all guitars receive a new set of high quality strings.


You will be offered a range of high quality replacement parts from potentiometers, capacitors, switches and pickups through to hardware and pickups from most quality brands. 


All types of major repair work can be undertaken, from fixing a broken neck to restoring your vintage guitar...     Contact for a quote.
