Part of the beauty of guitar production is that very few elements of any build need to remain 'stock', allowing even the most novice player to experiment with and make changes to their guitar for even the most modest budget.
Everything from pickup and equipment changes to custom artwork and colour refinishes, installation of active electronic effects or custom on-board acoustic pre-amps, our team are on-hand to help realise the simpliest and most complex modifications, so feel free to contact us to discuss any and all requirements.

Phase Switching Options = from £30.00
Often an option considered when installing new pickups, Phase switching offers a unique 'Peter Green' inspired tonal variation in the 3-way mid-position for almost any type of guitar pickups and can be achieved by the installation of micro 2-way switches or, more commonly, upgrading to push/pull volume / tone pots. Service includes supply and installation of aforementioned switch or pot in your selected position.
Coil-Tap Options = from £30.00
A dynamic and relatively simple way to open up the tonal range and vocabulary of any guitar, when installing 4-conductor wired humbucking pickups (or suitably 4-conductor wired pickups or any kind) you have the option to cut one of the coils and produce a thinner, Strat-style tone that can be used in any switching position. Commonly used in dual humbucker instruments with either one or both pickups 'tapped', this mod can be applied in any number of configurations and is most commonly achieved via installation of a supplied push/pull pot or micro switch depending on your preference. Service includes supply of aforementioned components and wiring work.
