  • Richy is great. I recently bought a 1974 Fender strat, beautiful guitar, but it definitely needed some work. I had no idea what to do here so was recommended Richy.
    I dropped it off and then picked it up after a couple of weeks and it
    … read more plays absolutely amazingly. New frets, new nut, and a full setup. Richy kept me in the loop and made sure I was ok with the price of work that needed doing which I thought was nice.
    It plays absolutely perfectly, wouldn't change a thing about it!
    Richy also prices super fairly, I can tell a lot of work went into it, and the price is totally reasonable.
    If you have a guitar that needs work, and you are in or around London, you gotta go to Richy's Guitars!

  • As crazy as it can sound, finding a good luthier is hard in London, tried few of them and I was never happy with the results, feel like they don’t spend enough time to understand the needs of each person. Richy did an amazing job setting … read more up my guitar, perfectly setup the way I wanted, in no time.
    Price are fair and he is a good dude.
    Highly recommended.

  • Richy is amazing! I managed to break a string on my acoustic and he was kind enough to replace the string for absolutely no charge! Awesome guy and cannot recommend him enough!

  • Thank you Richy for the set up for my electro acoustic guitar. Richy is a really nice guy - helped me out straight away and did a really good job on my old guitar. Good price and not one of those stores that will just treat you like any … read more other customer.

  • I brought a Les Paul with pretty worn out frets, abused nut and poorly adjusted bridge. Richy has done a great job replacing the frets, changing the nut and repairing all the rest. Playing it now is a pure pleasure. A service totally worth … read more its price, Cheers

  • Just got my Gretsch electromatic hollow-body back from Richy’s guitar spa and hospital (it went in for a refit of the input jack, which had fallen inside, and also replacing the stick pick-ups with TV Jones Powertrons for a bit more growl … read more and bite).
    Richy did the work expertly, and also recommended a set up and some adjustments to the bridge for intonation, and sorted out the action.
    The guitar now plays BEAUTIFULLY, and even with my horrible playing, sounds like a completely different instrument.
    I cannot praise Richy enough. If you have a guitar, take it along, and it will transform it for you!

  • I dropped off two acoustic guitars, one of which had a buzz and the other a high action. Richy sorted out the action for a very reasonable price and didn't charge for sorting the buzz on the other guitar. Nice chap, so I would defintely … read more return in the future.

  • Richy restored two of my dearly beloved back to their former glory which I wasn't sure was possible.. I wasn't in a hurry for a quick turnaround by any means, yet all parts were ordered the same day and the work was completed … read more in less than 1 week.
    Really friendly and professional - I couldn't recommend highly enough. Cheers Richy!

  • I brought Richy my Lakland 55-94 for a full setup and I'm delighted with the results; everything is absolutely spot on. Richy lowered the action so there's a lovely even tone and feel throughout the entire fretboard and the sound … read more has improved drastically. Richy is a really sound lad who is clearly very knowledgeable and conscientious in his work. This coupled with his incredibly reasonable prices mean I cannot recommend Richy highly enough, I'll definitely be back to him in the future.
