Electric guitar and bass set up

Should your guitar dictate how good your playing technique and sound is? Most instruments can be improved with a little attention to detail and you will then be able to get the best/lowest playing action and tone. Minor setup and adjustment (truss rod adjust, clean and polish frets, fingerboard nut, action height, intonation, clean volume and tone pots) from £45 plus parts Major setup (all minor setup items plus fret dress and reshaping) from £85 plus parts 


Acoustic Guitar Setup

Many acoustic guitars suffer from high playing actions. We will lower it, dress any high frets and adjust the truss rod and fingerboard nut to allow maximum playing comfort. Intonation will be assessed and if necessary the bridge saddle can be moved to correct any problems. From £45 + parts (Let us quote you)







All types of repairs and restoration can be undertaken. We can repair broken necks and refinish to save the cost of a new neck! Lifting fingerboards? Cracks and breaks in guitar bodies? Warped tables and lifting bridges on acoustic guitars? Faulty pickups and electrics – irrespective of instrument type or age. We can even arrange for broken pickups to be rewound for you to any specification! From £45 + parts

About me

Clive Wayland started playing guitar over 50 years ago, playing in a pop group “Wild Flower” in the village where he lived. When Robbie Gladwell moved into the area, he switched to bass guitar, and they played together for a couple of years in local pubs and village halls. Over the years he has played in a variety of bands from rock to gospel and is now back playing bass guitar in a blues/rock/pop 5 piece band called Decksters based around Bicester. (

Blessed with a DIY attitude inherited from his father, he learned to fix repairs on his own guitars, and has in recent years spent a lot of time with Robbie (aka Dr Robert) in his Guitar Surgery in Suffolk learning how to do it properly, as well as more serious repairs. He has his own workshop in Bicester, Oxfordshire, where he wastes many hours playing around as well! Get in touch
