We offer a wide variety of different string gauges and brands to suit your play style, which include, (but are not limited to): D'Addario, Ernie Ball, Fender, Elixir.

New Nut

The old worn out nut will be replaced by a new bone, graphite or brass nut to the customers request. Many off-the-wall guitars will be installed with a plastic nut from the factory. We do not recommend plastic, as there is often issues with tuning stability and string slippage whilst playing. The new nut will be installed, shaped and filed to the correct height for optimal playing experience using only the most-precise 'Stewmac' files available on the market.


Our replacement hardware services involve replacing tuners, bridges, pick-ups, control knobs, switches, strap-buttons and jack sockets. We are able to supply parts as we have good connections with many suppliers across the UK. These parts can be provided at an additional cost which will be added to the cost for labour. However, if you'd like to provide us with parts of your own, then this is absolutely fine aswell.


A re-fret consists of removing the old worn out frets, to be replaced by new stainless steel ones. We advise on stainless steel as this is the best material for replacement frets. You'll also find that with this material, the frets themselves with have longevity and will prolong your enjoyment and playing experience. We will of course fit to our clients specifications and needs. Service includes: an additional full set-up service.


We deal with cosmetic repairs, headstock breaks, binding repairs, bridge repairs, chips, dents, cracks, dings and minor blemishes. Our prices for our structural work may vary due to the extent of repair required and heavily depends on the severity of the break or crack, for example. For most breakages, we use 'Tightbond' wood glue which is considered to be the best for major breakages.
