Guitar & Bass Setups

I learnt the vast majority of my knowledge from the luthier/magician Garth when I worked at Rushworths Music House in Chester at the end of the 70’s and from the many techs with major brands I have been in contact with over the years. I setup instruments by feel rather than specifications and each one is bespoke to the individual, I keep records on all my clients and their preferences, how they like their guitar or bass to play so I can adjust the next one accordingly.

My mantra has always been ” I’M HAPPY WHEN YOU’RE HAPPY “
