Workshop & Repairs

For just over 25 years now, The Guitar Centre has been providing guitarists & bass players from near and far, as well as banjo, ukulele and mandolin players, an unbeatable repair and maintenance service for their instruments.

Our in-house expert luthier, Julian Clarke is always on hand to offer advice, and can draw on many years experience in the field.

The reputation of his work is well known throughout the industry, and customers return from far and wide again and again for his expertise and their trust in his service and repair work.

We also undertake pick-up fitting to all styles of guitar to suit individual customer needs.

View our guide maintenance price list below,  NOTE  PRICES ARE  A GENERAL GUIDE AND NOT AGREED UNTIL WE HAVE SEEN THE INSTRUMENT ON OUR PREMISES.

 

Please note we are rarely able to give estimates for specific repair work over the phone, without seeing the instrument and your requirements in person, so please feel free to give Julian a call here at the shop on 01732 742700 to discuss any work  and arrange a mutually convenient time to bring your instrument in.
