Custom Work

Custom Shop Work



For example: A customer wanted a Telecaster because she liked the shape. The problem was, she also wanted a tremolo guitar.

As you can see from the picture (Right) this was achieved. It meant making a special scratchplate to house the angled pickup, together with routing out the front and back for the Wilkinson Tremolo.

L R Baggs Acoustic Pick-up Installation


My favourite acoustic amplification system is the L R Baggs USA. My preference is not down to how big the 'name' is or the size of the profit margin - It's just a great product and delivers a fantastic sound. These are fitted to Gibson acoustic guitars. I have fitted bucket loads of these products to all kinds of acoustic guitars.
