The Nottingham City Guitars workshop covers all aspects of service, repair and restoration for acoustic, electric guitars and bass, even the odd cello or double bass.
We have our own purpose built workshop on the premises covering all aspects of service, repair and restoration for acoustic, electric guitars and bass, even the odd cello or double bass. Unlike many guitar retailers, we have all the necessary specialist tools, neck jig, spray booth, buffing machine, ultra-sonic cleaner & inspection equipment. Our bench rate is £35 per hour and there is a minimum charge of £20. An electric or acoustic Setup is £45 + strings. Setup with Floyd Rose style bridges £90.
Turn around times vary but typically 10 days. We try to offer a same day service if a job is genuinely urgent. It’s amazing how the right attitude, or not, can queue jump! We hold a varied stock of quality spares including Switchcraft, CRL, CTS, Alpha, Jesecar fret wire, Luxe, Sprague, D’Addario, Ernie Ball, Sfarzo….. We supply and fit MasteryBridge, K&K Acoustic Pickups and Bare Knuckle Pickups. If pushed we can be persuaded to hand wind pickups and do vintage re-winds. We do not undertake amp repairs but highly recommend Martin Cooper of Coopersonic www.coopersonic.com.
All prices exclude parts & strings, unless stated otherwise and are applicable to 6 & 4 string guitars. Workshop terms and conditions are listed on our Terms & Conditions page.
