Musicman Axis Supersport: I had bought my dream guitar off eBay and when it arrived I realized it was a dog to play, (yet still sounded great as these guitars do). So I sent it off to my local guitar tech, who in time “set it up” for me. After playing the newly setup guitar I realized it still didn’t play anywhere like I hoped. Being disappointed with the guitar I assumed I had just bought a dog and left it to gather dust for a couple of months.
Eventually a decided to pick the guitar up again and noticed the guitar couldn’t hold it’s tune with whammy bar gentle dips. On realizing this I thought I’d give my axe one last setup attempt but with someone else. This is when I came across the Guitar Doctor. I took the guitar to him, and upon inspection he noted poorly dressed frets and buzzing straight away. I left it in his hands wondering if it could be improved upon. Having received a very comprehensive email describing the work he had undertaken I arranged to collect it. Wow, the guitar had been transformed into a highly playable dream axe. I couldn’t believe the difference. The guitar played like silk, and held it’s tune for the first time since I owned it. I now intend to take all of my guitars to the Guitar Doc.
Thank you Doc ! John W (Derbys)
Fender Bullet Deluxe: Hi Robin, You have brought this guitar back to life, and the neck plays as if it were brand-
Rickenbacker 4001 Bass
Robin did an amazing job on my beloved Rickenbacker bass. I had let it get to quite a bad state and I knew it was in desperate need of a set up, but I wanted to find someone I trusted before handing it over. When I came across Robin’s website I knew straight away he was the man for the job. After leaving it with him for a few days I went round to pick it up and could not believe how much he had improved, not only the sound but the playability…… it sounded awesome!!!!! I cannot recommend Robin highly enough, you won’t be disappointed!!! I will certainly be using him for any repairs or setups I need doing in the future.
Cheers Robin, thanks for all your help, James P.
Gordon Smith G60 Hi Robin, Just a quick note to say a huge thank you for the bridge, nut and fret board on my Gordon Smith G60. It now feels as good as it sounds and plays like an absolute dream. I also very much appreciate the fact that I was regularly informed of progress for the duration of the job –
Once again, thanks a million –
All the best. Mike W (Mansfield)
Alden Chicago This man is a genius, he turned my guitar from something I wished I’d never bought into something I will never sell. He is a perfectionist in every way, very polite and very patient. I would never go to any other after his great work. The guitar he put his magic golden touch on is a Les Paul-

Robin is a magician! He has taken my Iceni Zoot 6-

Thanks once again for the amazing job you’ve done on my guitar –
Fender Stratocaster ’70s (Black)
Hi Robin …. Hope you are well.
Firstly I must say thank you for all your positive input and advice given to me when you carried out the initial assessment. Although I have played guitar for quite a number of years – I learnt a lot about the construction and technicalities of a guitar by just listening to your obvious experience and passion. Although my ‘Stratocaster’ was purchased back in the late seventies, it has never had a ‘health check’ in nearly thirty years and during some of that time hadn’t even seen the light of day !! I have to say that I couldn’t wait to get it back and was keen to see and feel the difference …. ‘WOW!’ was an understatement !!!! Although this was a great guitar – it has now become an incredible sounding instrument – that has raised comment from fellow guitarist that have heard and played it. The action is great and easy to play … and the tone has never been as good. Its always the case that – when someone knows their job – it is always evident in the end result they produce …. I know have one hell of a ‘Strat’ that you could not buy for love nor money !!!
