I use the finest materials available to produce boutique guitars and basses without the boutique prices. Each instrument is designed, built, finished and set up by hand to your specifications. I have some of my own models which can be built to your taste or I can design from scratch. Either way the instrument can be built the way you want it.

I source woods from Ireland, Europe and the U.S.A. depending on availability for the particular instrument. All hardware is made by Schaller in Germany, and I use DiMarzio pickups (unless a customer has a personal preference for another type). All basses are fitted with Delano pickups and preamps or Bartolini pickups and preamps. I also use John East Pro preamps if the customer requires it. I can use whatever hardware/ pickup, make/ model required, but I have found the above to be the best for sound, looks and durability. All necks are laminated as they are extremely stable compared to one piece necks and are fitted with double action truss rods.

I also do custom inlay work on fret boards, headstocks or any other part of the instrument you want inlay on. As standard, guitars come with dot markers and bass fret boards are left blank. There is also the option to fit luminescent side dots on the neck to help you see fret positions in dark or low light situations. If you have a particular design you want incorporated in your inlay I can do it for you. All inlays are cut and inlayed by hand, making your new instrument unique and beautiful.

I also specialise in repairs/ modifications on electric and acoustic guitars and other stringed instruments. I am now offering a Collect and Return courier service for customers who live far away from where I am based, click HERE to see details.
