Your guitar is safe in my hands

I know from talking to customers that when they are looking to have a guitar setup, a guitar repair or some other work done on a guitar they usually have a number of important questions in mind. These are:

  1. Does this person I am considering taking my guitar to really know what they are doing?
  2. Have they carried out this type of work before?
  3. Will my guitar come back in a worse condition after the work is done?
  4. Will the guitar be properly looked after whilst it is out of my hands?
  5. How much this work cost?

Well, all can suggest to answer those questions is that you have a look around this site. You will find examples of my work, whether that be in photographs or video. I also suggest you have a look at some recent testimonials. I understand that taking a precious guitar to someone like me is an important step. Hopefully this site will give you the reassurance you need.

Happy to talk 

I’m very happy to discuss any guitar setup and guitar repair work that you are considering having done, whether that be via email, over the phone or face to face in my workshop. So please feel free to contact me

“Hello David, I just had to drop you and email. I can not be happier with the repair, fretwork and setup you did on my Les Paul Axcess, to the extent I am glad that I still have it! Also the setup and work on my Les Paul Standard, they are both a joy to play, thank you once again. I have had lots of work done on my guitars in the past but never to the same standard. Ray”
