Guitar Repair Specialist for Martin, Gibson, Fender, Guild, Takamine, Yamaha, Ovation and Adamas Guitars

Over three decades I have specialised  in repairing Martin, Gibson, Fender, Guild, Takamine, Yamaha, Ovation and Adamas guitars.

Repairs vary from basic set up work to full blown renovation and rebuilds.
The most extreme repair I have undertaken was taken into the workshop about 8 years ago; a woman had bought a Yamaha acoustic guitar for her husband from her local music shop and 2 years or so later he was sadly killed in a car crash. The guitar was also in the car at the time of the accident and was badly damaged in the resulting fire. The widow wanted the guitar restored as a memorial to her late husband but alas the only thing salvageable was the guitar’s bridge. I was commissioned to build an exact replica of his guitar using the old bridge.

Contact me if your guitar is in need of TLC and talk through the possibilities.

    I have a 2003 les Paul, it’s a 69 reissue I think.. It’s been thrown about a bit and had a few knocks, the electronics also got mucked with by someone at some point.. I was thinking about selling it and wondered d how much it would benefit me to restore it to its former glory? It might need a fair bit of work..

    I can send some photos if the would be easier, let me know.

    I have a black Takamine Ltd96 and the acuracoustic preamp is faulty. Firstly where can I get a replacement ? And how do you pull the pre-amp out. There only seems to be one visible button in the battery compartment?

    Y’all could sure help a poor boy out by allowing him to glean some spec knowledge on a 1982 Takamine EF381R (the 6-string model).
    I asked my friend, a pretty fine luthier, for my tang height, and he provided the following, concerning the frets:
    Crown= .039, width= .084, tang= .055, slot width= .023. I’m guessing he misread his sheet and the crown is prob’ly .089 since my old box currently measures .080. My width measures around .190 or 2.7mm. I just don’t know what my tang or slot really is without pulling a fret. I still want to play it while seeking out the proper fret wire…
