GUITAR DETAILING, SERVICING AND SETUP.
My workshop is located in High Street, Northcote. It’s a short walk from Merri Train Station and the 86 tram is on the corner. Off-street parking is available.
Here’s a price list of what I currently I offer:
Setup of electric, acoustic or bass guitar: $60 (excl. strings)
Clean and condition fret-board, polish frets, test and clean electric components. Adjust neck relief, pickup height and string height where necessary. Set correct radius of bridge and intonation to get your guitar playing and sounding it’s best.
Guitar service/setup lesson (over two hours): $100 (excl. strings)
If you’d like to come hang with me at the workshop and learn how to service and set up your own guitar, you are welcome to join me while I do the work. I’ll show you how it’s done and the tools you’ll need to buy. Please allow two hours as it might take some time to get things just right.
Pickup installation: From $30
Install new pickup/s and set pickup height.
Wiring repairs (replace switches, pots, full re-wiring, etc): $CALL
Replace faulty volume/tone control pots, switches, output jack or create custom wiring, e.g. install push/pull pot for humbucker coil-split, mini-switches, custom switching, etc.
Guitar detailing: $CALL
Take your instrument out of retirement and get it ready to play or sell. I can: deep clean, recondition hardware, polish frets, repair wiring, clean electronic components, re-string and setup as necessary. Any specialised structural work or refinishing can be outsourced and managed for you. I can also help with appraisal of items if you are wanting to list them for sale online.
