The short answer is probably yes. There are many factors that can affect how well the instrument plays and it also depends on your playing style and the type of guitar
In general we will look at the bridge, nut, frets, truss rod and straightness of the neck and make an assessment. Most of these can be adjusted manually and corrected. However there may be exceptions such as worn out parts, which may need replacing.
Whether you require a pickup for a jazz guitar, solid body electric or acoustic we can fit new pick-ups for nearly all.
This is normally straight forward if it is a like-for-like swap. However we may be required to carry out some remedial work if the new pickup is of a different size in order to accommodate it. We will discuss what is involved in detail for you to make the final decision.
The Frets on my guitar are worn down can you replace them?
Yes we can, is the quick answer. We can remove and replace with an agreed specification of fret wire.
Depending on how the frets are fixed and if there is binding on the edge of the neck we may need to remove the binding in order to remove and replace the frets. Every care will be take to remove the binding carefully and in tact.
However it may not be possible to do this without damaging and so we will inform you at the time if you will need to replace binding in the process before we start.
Yes many splits can be repaired. In most cases we can clean the joint and provide a glue repair and refinish so that the repair is almost invisible.
We will take each brake on its merits. In extreme cases we may recommend either a partial rebuild or a full replacement. But our philosophy is where possible we retain the original and repair and replace as a last option.
