Noisy pots and switches on your guitar or bass can be annoying and a dry solder joint or worn components in the wiring loom can make your guitar unreliable. We can rewire your guitar according to your requirements including replacing worn electrical components, changing pickups, or rewiring whole looms. 

We can also advise on straightforward amplifier issues including replacing worn valves, changing speakers and cleaning noisy pots.

WARNING: amplifiers have lethal voltages inside even when disconnected from the mains. Do NOT attempt fault diagnosis or repairs yourself but consult a qualified amp technician or electrical engineer.
