Our Guitar Set Ups

Our Services

Every guitar we have for sale has been fully checked over and adjusted if needed, insuring our customers always have the best first impression from their chosen instrument. Modern Music also offers a free complete guitar set up with any Guitar purchased from us. This free set up lasts within the twelve-month warranty period from the date the Guitar is purchased.

We recommend the Guitar is inspected and re-adjusted if necessary within its twelve-month warranty period. This is extremely important due to any faults that may develop during this time. Customers should be especially careful when storing or leaving the guitar near heat sources such as radiators or when stored inside a car in hot weather. Extreme temperatures can warp or bow the neck. When warped or bowed, the neck might not straighten by using the standard adjustment of the truss rod and could need major expensive repairs. We always recommend to customers, if their guitar neck does need adjusting then it should be carried out by our Guitar Technician at our shop. The reason for proper adjustment is due to it being extremely hard to tell which way the neck is moving and how much tension is needed, improper adjustment can lead to irreparable damage to the neck. An electric guitar if treated with good care should provide a very good investment.

As well as our free guitar set ups, we also offer our set up services to guitars which are not entitled to a free set up. Our standard set up charge is £30.00 plus strings. Every Wednesday our Guitar Technician will service and set up the guitar’s which have been booked in for that day. These guitar set ups will be completed on the day ready for collection. Due to high demand for these services, extra days will be available for set ups but will need to be booked in advance via contacting the shop on 01872 271701.

We also offer services for any electrical problems with Amplifiers or Guitar Electronics. Please contact us for more details.
