Instrument Repairs

We have an in store workshop manned by our resident luthier. We undertake many types of stringed instrument repair, Bring your guitar in for us to have a look at to get a quote (a typical 1/2-hour labour charge is £20.00). Turn-around times may vary, please call up to check.

We currently cannot take in instruments needing fretwork or structural repairs. Please give us a call before bringing any instrument in for repair work, and we will give you an idea of whether or not we will be able to do it. Thank you.
