  • Suzanne Hutt (Wednesday, August 19 20 12:48 pm BST)

    I've just acquired an acoustic guitar. I'm a complete beginner. However I have noticed if the action was lower it could be much more comfortable to practice on.
    Is this something you could do? If so can you please give a rough cost. Just put new stings on.

  • Garry (Friday, August 14 20 07:56 pm BST)

    Hi - got a relatively new ibanez acoustic. Feel the action could do with lowering. Any ball park figure for how much it would be and how long it'd be with you?

  • Billy (Tuesday, July 07 20 11:14 am BST)

  • Rob (Monday, February 24 20 10:11 am GMT)

    I have a brand new Schecter Reaper-7. I've replaced the horrible factory strings, but it could do with a full set up (truss, intonation, etc). Can you assist?

  • Oliver (Tuesday, February 04 20 08:39 pm GMT)

  • Dave (Tuesday, December 17 19 07:22 pm GMT)


    I have an ibanez sr400 bass, I've new strings on, but it badly needs a full setup.

  • craig (Friday, December 13 19 02:55 pm GMT)

    Change the current gauge strings from 10’s to 9’s.
    Set the trem up, so that it floats.

  • Chris Pratt (Thursday, July 11 19 05:36 pm BST)

    I've put together a Strat but the neck holes don't quite match up with the body so the high E string is too close to the edge of the fretboard and keeps pinging off. How much would it cost to have the neck holes filled and re-drilled and to have the guitar set up?

  • Ian (Wednesday, July 10 19 02:30 pm BST)

    Hi, I’m looking for a tremolo arm for a squire fender strat

  • Rob Brown (Wednesday, May 15 19 04:12 pm BST)

    I have a vintage black Yamaha SG2000 which needs some TLC. Body dents/scratches need repairing, new bridge, maybe new pickups. Id like it to be reconditioned as close to original (new) condition as poss. Would you be able to give me a ball park price - i appreciate you would need to see it to be accurate but a typical repair / recondition price would be appreciated. Thanks, Rob

  • Alex Wathen (Sunday, May 12 19 12:21 am BST)

    Thank you

  • Liam Ainger (Friday, April 13 18 02:44 pm BST)

    If so, how much?

  • Luke (Wednesday, March 07 18 05:14 pm GMT)


    Just wondered how much it would cost to give my bass a bit of a service? There’s a bit of string buzz, and I can’t seem to get rid of it, so wondered if you could help!

    Also, how long would it take, and do you know how much a basic service would cost me?

  • Marcus Taylor (Sunday, March 04 18 02:23 pm GMT)
