I thought I would drop a line to say that the work you did on my Strat is terrific, and has made much more difference than I would have thought could have been made to the guitar. All the things that I had taken as just inevitable features of the guitar’s design, the high action, occasional buzzing, the fuzzy tone and the mediocre sound high up on the fretboard, have been completely turned around. The amount of effort I have to use in my left hand is halved, and the quality of sound, and the range of different tones I can get out is massively improved. Had I known this before I would have brought it round long ago!

I cannot agree more with the other testimonials on your website. I could go on repeating the comments made (especially from Tom,The Yarbles) but would just like to add from my own experience with The Guitar Doctor, that apart from making my bass so much better in all aspects ( I thought it was good but now it’s superb!) you (Robin) were very fair with the price quoted, taking you far longer to sort the bass than originally thought. You are a true gent to deal with as well as a very talented craftsman. My recommendation will go to all I know who play.
I used the bass in first full rehearsal last night and the new set up is awesome –
I will definitely be recommending your service to everyone!
My Crafter, so much more playable than before, I would almost think it is a different guitar!!! A job very well done. Thank you very much Peter Demaine
The fret board was in terrible state and it played awful!! ……….Ater some net trawling I came across’The Guitar Doctor’ based near Nottingham. I live in Leicester but after reading the testimonials on the website left for Robin (the Doctor) I gave….him a call and took over the guitar. The location wasn’t difficult to find at all and after a very warm welcome we got down to the telecaster. We spoke about what initially had to be done to the guitar to try and decide whether itwas worth carrying out any work at all!! The neck was bent,the intonation was way out and the frets really noisy just to name a few of the problems! After a good chat Robin felt it was worth doing after all,which I was very happy about ………. I left feeling sure Robin would do his best and had no doubt if anyone coulddo this then this was the guy! I have tried many companies and independent bodies with various
guitars and have never been entirely happy with either service or prices before,but felt Robin to be genuine and certainly knowledgeable in the guitar field! A few days later,……………..I was completely astonished at the formation that had taken place! I gave it a test run and couldn’t believe it. Not a buzz,rattle or piece of dirt in sight! Everything we spoke about at the initial meeting had been completed and more!! Everything was spotlessly clean and set up to a degree only a true craftsmen could bring to fruition,and all for a very,very reasonable price! This will definitely be my guitar of choice at all our future shows and can’t wait to hear it live! It has been transformed –
Robin,a true perfectionist!!!! See you again soon. Tom (The Yarbles)
rest of my life, thereby rendering about 5 guitars almost redundant.Then I got the “White Vulture” off ebay, gave it to you to swap the pickups and generally pimp it up the way you do, and everything changed again…I was kind of worried when it arrived in the post –
spot on the neck wasn’t good, and I wasn’t holding my breath.You astounded me, in short. Your work on the neck alone makes me want to invent a medal for services to guitars and award it to you. It felt smoother, the frets were levelled, and it just LOOKED healthier. The pickup swap was again perfect, and this vulture is giving the orange Gretsch some INTENSE competition…All I can say is thank you. You have a wonderful talent for taking a guitar that is average and applying some kind of moth-
