Just to say a massive THANK YOU for the wonderful, faultless set up work you've done on my Son's Yamaha acoustic and my Rockingham electric, both are now brilliant guitars to play. Thanks again John and Alex Zahorodnyj.

A'up Rich, just played it thru my amp,,sounds f***ing ace, and feels superb!! Wicked job, Thanks again mate. What you can't see on this pic is me squealing with glee...!

Wow, the bass is fantastic, I can start playing my Tobias again!

Pete Bacanin (Nearly Dan), who abandoned his Tobias bass due to the assymetric neck shape making his thumb ache, which I alleviated by shaving and reprofiling the neck slimmer.

Just to let you know, the set up on my N4 is stunning. Thanks for everything, regards Iain McKinley.

Hi Rich,

We met some time ago when you fitted a Fishman to my Takamine. Steve Travis told me that you were back and that you were collecting his dobro from his shop on Wednesday. I have a Baby Taylor that needs a set up (action lowering and intonation correcting) - if I leave it with Steve would you be able to collect it along with his instrument?

Cheers,

All the best,

Hi Rich,
Many thanks for sorting my recently acquired second hand Dean electro-acoustic. Last week I was ready to throw the guitar away I was so disappointed with it - now I can't put it down! You've got the action really low, and the neck, which resembled Robin Hood's bow, is now straight again.

I'd thoroughly recommend your work,

Kind regards,
Kevin Birchall.

Hi Rich,
It's not much of a tip, but you should have kept the 2.50! I'll owe you a drink instead. I've put that Soloist back together now and it's my favourite guitar, you've done an excellent job.
Sorry for taking so long to get the money to you.
Cheers

Hi Rich,
Thanks for doing the setup on my Yamaha SG - it was a bit of a pig, as the previous owner had messed with the truss rod and buggered it up. It plays much better now.
Also, cheers for doing the previous setup and pick-up replacement on my 335 copy, it was a great job.
As I said earlier, I'm more than happy for you to use the above comments on your website if you wish. Thanks once again for doing a cracking job.
Regards

I took delivery of the body you refinished for me today. I'm absolutely delighted with the result - its exactly the right shade and I particurlarly like the way you kept the thickness down to allow the wood to resonate. I will send you a pic of the whole thing when I put it back together and I'd be only to happy to recommend your work to others.
Cheers, Joe

A few weeks ago my friend Keith Turner and I brought you some guitars which you dealt with excellently. One of them was my Kramer which wouldn't hold its tuning. You recommended new machine heads, which I've fitted (Grover) and it now stays in tune but strings which are tuned correctly at the open position go sharp when fretted, and the nut seems to "grab" the strings. Can the slots in the nut be widened and lowered to see if this might solve the problem or at least improve it? If you can do it are there any days in the next couple of weeks when you would not be available if I came to you on the same while-u-wait basis as the last visit? Clearly, I'll either ring or e-mail in advance to arrange a firm day and time but when not to come would be valuable info.

Looking forward to seeing you again, John Clucas

**John had raised the gauge of his strings, which had caused the problem, all is well since his last visit.**
