Structural repairs to acoustic fretted instruments


All by inspection and individual quotation.


"The ability to turn a good but impaired instrument into one which plays so well you don’t want to put it down is a rare ability. Tony has that ability and has worked his magic on a few of my guitars. When you buy an expensive Gibson, you expect it to play like a dream. Quality control being what it is, this isn’t always the case. When you find yourself fiddling with the truss rod and bridge in an attempt to get the thing to play better, so you can just concentrate on what you’re playing, you need external help. Tony can do that for you, by removing buzzes and improving the action, so that it plays as it should. In short, he can make your dream guitar actually play and sound like one!"
