Premium Workshop Set-up

All the instruments that we supply undergo stringent bench checks and undergo our Premium Workshop Set-up before they are put on sale or dispatched to our customers.

Our in-house workshop facility and set-up service to you is second to non. Our workshop staff have many combined years of experience in playing and setting up the instruments that we supply.

Our Premium Workshop Setup includes checks and adjustments by our specialist workshop technicians for:-

  • Cosmetic detail
  • Neck relief
  • Fret profiles
  • Playing action at the nut
  • Playing action at the 12th fret
  • Bridge position
  • Intonation
  • Tailpiece angle
  • Tuning and playability

We have added a few pictures to our gallery of specific set-up stages that are a must for getting the best out of your instrument in both playability, tone and volume.

A fantastic range of stock. I've visited the shop in the past and they've been very welcoming and happy for me to try instruments out. On this occasion I purchased online, and my instrument and case were delivered safely and very quickly. I sent a small follow-up question by e-mail and that was handled quickly and politely. Really couldn't ask for more.
