Nottingham City Guitars Repairs

All repairs are undertaken on the premises in our in-house workshop.

We repair and adjust acoustic and electric guitars, the occasional double bass, cello, mandolin, or what ever else comes along. We work on expensive vintage guitars and budget instrument with due care and attention. Cost of the works is based on an hourly rate, not the value of your guitar. Work is usually undertaken on a fixed price basis.Unlike most guitar retailers we have all the necessary specialist tools and equipment. Your guitar is fully insured while on the premises.Typical work undertaken includes setups, fret dressing, re-frets, replacement of top nut, fitting machine heads, re-wiring, replacement pots & pickups, body alterations & routing, headstock repairs, and finish repairs. If in doubt please drop us an email, preferably with a few photos.

Turnaround times vary, but typically 10 days. Work is undertaken preferably by appointment. 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 stock of quality spares, including Switchcraft, Bigsby, CRL, CTS, Alpha, Jescar fret wire, Luxe, Sprague, D’Addario & Ernie Ball. We supply and fit Mastery Bridge, Cream T 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 Quoted 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.
