General Repairs Price Guide (*Please note these prices are guidelines as every repair is different)
All prices are inclusive of VAT.
Basic Set-up £49
The aim here is to get the guitar as playable as possible. It includes all truss-rod, top-nut and bridge adjustments for optimum performance as well as a thorough check of the electronics and overall clean (Strings not included).
Full Set-up (recommended) £89
This includes the basic set-up with fretwork. Most instruments will need this from time to time as frets become uneven due to fingerboard swell, shrinkage or simply worn through playing. By having the frets levelled, crowned and then a set-up, the instrumentâ€™s full potential will be achieved.
Refret from £100
A wide range of fretwire is available for refrets to bound or unbound necks but please note that some maple fingerboards may need to be resprayed (POA). Includes basic set-up.
Bass Defret £75
Most bass guitars can easily be converted to fretless by removal of the frets and having the slots filled with a variety of materials. Includes basic set-up. Please note that some maple fingerboards may need to be resprayed (POA).
Replace top nut £25
Top-nuts can be individually cut from a selection of materials eg graphite, bone, brass etc. This is often preferable to fitting a â€˜precutâ€™ top-nut as they rarely fit without modification!
Rewiring from £20
Any kind of electrical work can be carried out including pickup swaps, pickup rewinds, active circuit installation, custom wiring etc. Electrical gremlins also exterminated!
Hardware fitting & custom routing POA
Machine heads, bridges, pick guards etc can often be fitted with little or no modification however some pickups and hardware may require bodywork routing to fit, e.g. humbuckers, tremolos, battery boxes, active EQs etc.
Many different kinds of finish are available including vintage ageing.
