Keeping your guitar in top condition is vital to making it play properly.

setups, east anglia guitar repair

Each setup will include a cleaning (including electrical parts)*, truss rod and bridge adjustments, fingerboard treatment, ensuring the nut is cut properly, lubrication of friction points, setting the intonation and a new set of regular strings of your favourite standard gauge (9-42, 10-46). Other gauges, bass and coated strings cost a little extra.

COST: £65

*extensive cleaning may cost extra. Please don’t leave your guitar outside!


  • Provide your own strings – £5 off
  • Floyd Rose setup – additional £20
  • Partial refret – £20 per fret
  • Spot levelling – additional £25

Sometimes frets move due to moisture or poorly installed frets. If any fret is proud of the others, you’ll have fretbuzz issues. Spot levelling will take care of those rogue frets when a complete fret level isn’t necessary. If too many frets are out of line, I’ll let you know, because at that point it makes more sense just to level the whole fretboard.

Standard Floating Tremolo Tune up – additional £25

Tremolo. Whammy. Wiggle Stick. Ok, we all know it’s really a vibrato, but let’s call it a tremolo for now. Mainly used to give a slight flutter to notes and chords, it can be a source of frustration for many players, but that’s usually because it’s not setup correctly. Get it done the right way and you’ll open up new musical possibilities, pulling up notes, bending down notes and returning to tune. Yes, in tune. It can be done! But not only in tune, but also detuning to a preset pitch. Your trem deserves to be setup properly.
