Guitar repairs in Lincoln! I learned to repair guitars out of necessity while gigging in function bands, as a guitar teacher, and hosting the open mic night at Ozzy’s Sports Bar, in Shropshire (yes, Ozzy actually used to own it), to try and make my guitars play, and sound as good as possible, which is the approach I have to every repair. Essentially string instruments are the same, whether acoustic, electric, bass, ukulele, banjo, or violin etc…Get in touch!

Guitar Set-ups

Guitar set-ups LincolnWhen I started playing I’d never heard of a guitar set-up – my dad had just bought me my first guitar, a Mexican Strat, and it was horrible to play, but my dad, being old school told me “A good workman never blames his tools”, so I persevered forcing the strings down, just so I could play something that resembled a tune. Had I known about set-ups back then, I’d probably be famous by now?!;)

So, you’ve bought an awesome looking guitar, but it plays like a strung up broom? The strings are set so high, you need a clamp just to fret them, or the frets buzz so much that you may as well be playing a broom? Well my friend, then you need a set-up! A set-up involves adjusting various elements of the guitar – the neck, the bridge, and in some cases the nut and frets, as it also includes a thorough clean, and string change to give the guitar those bright, sustaining tones. Basic set-ups from £50, including strings. Call today for more information.

Cosmetic & Structural repairs

Electrical, cosmetic, & structural repairs in Lincoln

A common acoustic guitar repair is bridge buckle, or bellying, where, over time the tension of the strings has pulled the bridge up, and away from the top, often causing unreasonably high strings, making the guitar almost unplayable. So, what’s the solution? Get a chisel and a lump hammer and get chopping, or do what you’ve always wanted to, and turn it into firewood in the backyard? No, put the hammer down. A fairly affordable, and non-invasive repair can be carried out. Call today for more info.
