  • 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!

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.

  • Richy has been working on a 5 string bass which has turned out to be a pretty tricky customer. Got the bass back today and I haven't been able to put it down. Richy is a great lad, friendly and really likeable, as well as being an … read more excellent luthier, he is more than reasonably priced for his work, the work he has done for me would've cost and has cost considerably more than other guitar techs I have used before. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Richy, he will be getting a lot more work from me in the future and will now be my first port of call for anything I need done to any of my guitars.
