I am located in Bedford, Near Bedford Park, at 2 Polhill Avenue, MK41 9DS and offer a full guitar & bass setup service from simple re-strings, fret polishes, intonation, to more major repairs. 

Over 15 years of experience with all types of guitars means I can offer advice and guidance to help you make an informed decision about what work needs to be done. Whether your guitar just needs a re-string or something much more serious I am confident I can help. 

For re-strings and full setups we offer a 48hr turn around so you'll have your guitar back for that gig at the weekend. 

We are open 9-5pm weekdays and Saturdays by appointment only. 

Basic Re-String - £10 (plus strings)
A basic re-string also includes a clean & polish. Just choose your strings and add £8.

A Re-string & Full Setup
Acoutics - £20 (plus strings)
Electrics - £25 (plus strings)
Before you spend money on a full setup you need to ask yourself whether it needs it. Usually we would recommend this once a year if you play regularly. It usually needs to be done when changing the strings and it should improve the play-ability and the tuning of your guitar as well as keeping it in good condition so that it lasts. Think about your guitar as you would a car, if it’s serviced regularly it’s going to drive better and last longer. Most guitars that I see can benefit from a minor tweak that can dramatically improve its playability. 

A full setup includes....
1) Clean and polish
2) A fret polish
3) Electronics check & clean
4) Re-string (strings extra)
5) Truss rod & bridge spring adjustment (Neck relief and floating bridge strength)
6) Action adjustment (how high the strings are from the neck)
7) Intonation adjustment (how in tune the guitar plays higher up the neck)

Mandolins and Ukuleles
Any guitar type instrument is welcome including Mandolins, Bouzoukis, ukuleles and Banjos.
