GUITARS NEED LOVE TOO !
Guitars are living-breathing instruments made of natural products, like people. And like us they need regular health checks including re-strings, set-ups and electronic component checks. We provide a full range of Guitar Tech services to keep your instrument in perfect health and make it easier to play!
Regularly re-stringing your guitar makes a huge difference to its sound and playability. We recommend a re-string every 3 to 6 months depending on how often you play and how tough you are on your strings! Some strings also last longer than others - ask us for more information.
All re-strings include a string stretch, tune, fretboard condition, fret polish and instrument clean.
Prices do not include strings - sold separately in our shop - to allow freedom to choose your preferred brand, gauge etc.
