We try to give all our Guitars, a 'Curvy Sounds' set up,which gives them a beautifully playable, low action.At the moment we are very pushed to keep up with our set ups as we have been struggling with illness,so check with us if you want to make sure its set up before you buy.
We also stock a range of ,Laka ,Freshman and Riptide Ukuleles.
