(We are having problems with facebook at the moment,and have been locked out due to all our passwords being wiped, we are trying to get back in but with no luck so far, so for the moment don't use facebook messanger to contact us.Posts will still appear on facebook but we cant see your messages or change the shop opening times on facebook.)

We are now back to our full repair service. We have two new very talented Luthiers on our team-Lewis who specialises in electric Guitars and basses and Alex Kirtley - who works on acoustics, mandolins, banjos, mandolas and Ukes.
Andrew will not be repairing until his new workshop is properly up and running , and then he will be working on a more selected smaller volume of repairs,while branching into more vintage restorations and he will be developing his own range of Guitars, and custom made parts and scratch plates.
We offer a colourful, range of fairtrade instruments for Kids,many of which would also make fun presents for adults.These are made of ceramics,wood or bamboo and are plastic free.

We also sell 3/4 size and 1/2 size guitars,and fun coloured ukuleles for young players.

If you want to buy several items-we will ,of course, pack them into one box( if they will fit ), to save you on postage costs.
