Valuation

Having built up a significant acoustic guitar collection ourselves from various sources, we feel that we are qualified to offer a valuation and appraisal service to individual C.F. Martin and Gibson Acoustic guitar owners. This might be for insurance purposes, for sale consideration or just because you want to know!

Such a written valuation will include the inspection of the guitar by a respected and qualified luthier with a wealth of experience in the acoustic guitar market. His report will be fundamental to the valuation and will identify any work that might be needed on the guitar and what affect such work might have on overall sound and tone and also on valuation.

We have designed a pre-report “template” that we would ask be completed by anyone interested in this service. Once that has been completed and returned we would be able to quote a fixed fee for the service.

Luthier Services

Through our local luthier network, we are able to facilitate all manner of repairs and adjustments to your guitar.

We can arrange a meeting where we can inspect and report “on site”, with you in attendance, giving you the chance to observe the inspection and to question the luthier… in other words, a full consultation process.

We can arrange all manner of repair-work… from basic set-up and adjustment through to re-fretting the fingerboard; nut, bridge and saddle adjustment; repairing body cracks and full neck resets… and anything else that your guitar may need!
