[01/31/21]   I found this on my phone and I can’t remember making it or where I got the soundtrack from. 😂
Hopefully the workshop will be open again soon and I can get your instruments booked in...

Meanwhile have a little poke around on

Music One

It’s been a big year for vinyl. We’re lucky to have Robert Price fantastic record shop here in Abergavenny. Get down there as soon as the shops are open.

Suppliers of New & Used Vinyl Records and Hi-Fi Equipment

Well I hope you all got new guitars for Christmas?! The market for new and used guitars is thriving during the COVID Lockdown as many people have decided to learn guitar with their new-found spare time.

The one piece of advice I would like to give you all, whenever you buy a guitar, is to always put the money aside for a set-up and service from a professional Guitar Tech or Luthier. If you’ve bought online from Ebay or from a FaceBook group (which I advise would advise against tbh!) you’ll never really know what you’re going to get. The amount of instruments I have through my workshop in this situation is remarkable. Problems range from legitimate wear and tear to awful home-made repair and modification attempts.

Likewise, if you’ve bought from a shop its very unlikely thats its been setup properly. Either at the factory or on-site at the shop. A pro set-up is very time intensive and most companies cannot afford the time and manpower to do it correctly.

So send your instrument to an experienced tech. It’ll feel so much better under your hands and make it soooo much easier and more enjoyable to learn.

Get after it!

A couple of last weeks jobs.
Thanks for all your support this year. I’ll be back in action after the lockdown.

Happy Xmas x
