We set up and repair electric or acoustic guitars plus
any stringed instrument from ukulele to double-bass. We also make
and other instruments to order.
A recent testimonial from professional acoustic artist
("entirely original acoustic folk sound, some of the best acoustic
music in the UK"-Shindig! Magazine)
.... what a beautiful sound has matured out of the cutaway sunburst acoustic
you made in 1997. It has grown on me to the point that it is now my favorite
guitar from a playing and a sound point of view. The craftsmanship all round
is wonderful and the sound hole marquetry is a special delight to the eye.
The tonal accuracy and overall balance across all the frequencies from very
high to very low is really noticeable especially when I record with it,
usually on a pair of matching Audio Technica 4033 large diaphragm mikes.
It also has much more volume and warmth than anyone would expect from a
small bodied cutaway acoustic that would normally be perfect for jazzy crisp
sounds cutting through, but in the passing years the warmth has increased
noticeably. It still has a crisp top as well but the warmth has surprised
me and those who have heard the un doctored raw recordings of it on my studio
Tannoy monitors. So thanks for a fine instrument that has got right under
my skin in the last 14 years and made itself a great friend to me as it
has started to write songs all on its own! Now I will embark on retrofitting
a good internal mike and transducer. Thanks and good luck with all you do.
"I put my Schecter in the best hands in Wiltshire,
twice, and each time was nothing short of an amazing service. I had a
full intonation setup and string change (Floyd Rose) and a Sustainiac
Stealth Pro fitted, remarkable work. Going to be my Luthier for as long
as I'm in the South West. "
"Nick did a fantastic job on my Tanglewood acoustic,
replugging the bridge with rose wood and redrilling the pin holes, invisible
"Had a chance to put it through its paces and I
love it. Thank you so much for such a terrific job, really very much appreciated.
Till the next time!"
"Re: Aslin Dane - Hi Nick, Just writing to say
what a great job you did on the guitar, worth every penny."
"Nick has fixed up two guitars for me in the last
year. He took the mess I gave him (one of them was literally in bits)
and gave me back stunning working guitars! For incredibly reasonable prices
to boot! Highly recommended! The man is a guitar fixing legend!."
