Lacquering, Painting, Staining & Polishing:

A complete range of finishing services is offered from a total refinish to dent filling. All colours are available and can be used in conjunction with modern catalyst lacquers in high gloss/dead matt finishes or with traditional Nitro-cellulose to match the needs of any guitar and manufacturer. A professional polishing service is also offered using the polishing process and compounds found in the Gibson and Fender factories.

Wiring / Electrical:

All wiring services are offered whether you’re looking for a standard re-wire or a customised signal path. Vintage cloth wire and braided wire are available in keeping with vintage guitars and re-issues along with modern kit wire.

Pickup Winding,  Waxing/Potting:

Pickup services are offered from complete rewinds to waxing/potting. Pickups, especially telecaster and covered hum-buckers, are prone to micro-phonic feedback. This can be eliminated with waxing. All quality pickups are waxed.

Headstock Repair:

A broken headstock, though it looks nasty, doesn’t necessarily mean the end of your guitar. This kind of repair is usually kept for more expensive American brands. However, due to the relatively inexpensive “import” guitars on the market today a cheaper alternative repair is also available.
