Our Guitar Workshop has been open for over 24 years. Many of our customers will only trust their instruments to us, and that is because all work is done on the premises.


We carry out all types of repairs and custom work. Only finish work is done off the premises. We can do anything from replacing a string to replacing your pickups or even your frets. If you don't live nearby we can even arrange for carriage of your instrument to us and for its return after work is completed.

If you wish to discuss your requirements with our skilled technician.
