Instrument Repair Service
The shop offers a repair service for guitars, basses and certain other stringed instruments.
The regular staff can undertake some basic repairs and the re-stringing of instruments.
We also have an experienced guitar technician, Stuart Monks in-store on Saturday mornings usually between 10.30 AM & 1.30 PM. Some work can be undertaken on a "while you wait" basis by Stuart but, depending on the requirements of the repair and the time available, it is often more practical for the work to be performed off the premises in his workshop to be returned the following Saturday.
Stuart has worked as a professional guitar technician since the mid 1970s and worked for such artists as Bill Nelson, Les Paul, Steve Vai, Marillion, Paul Weller and Adele to name but a few. He has been involved in guitar building having worked for Roger Giffin's Guitar Workshop in the 1980s. He also spent several years at Electric Wood in High Wycombe building Wal basses from scratch for pro players such as Geddy Lee and Flea.
Stuart also maintains the instruments for the majority of the West End Theatre productions such as "We will Rock You", "Rock of Ages", "The Jersey Boys" and "Mamma Mia".
