I've searched around this forum and our previous home and have come up with the following luthiers.

They have all at some time been personally recommended by forum members who have had work carried out by them.

As this is a living document, if you have any amendments / additions then post the details on the thread and I'll add it to this first post.

Cheers Hamster!

I had no idea I had a luthier near me. Do you think they'd do a setup. My friend's bass has gone seriously concave and his action is ridiculously high. Do you think they'd sort it all out and re-string?

This is like...epihpany.

Thanks again,

Paul.

Have you actually had work done on your basses by these guys, or are they just business contacts?

Hi Hamster,

Andrew Scrimshaw set up my bass and installed pickups and booster in it. Ged is already on the list. Bob is working on a guitar of mine at the moment - happy so far. I guess that leaves Simon out for the time being, hope someone else from the forum can vouch for him - I am certain that anyone here would get a great service from him if that matters.

One to add to the list!

To save me the journey of travelling up to Sheffield to see Jon Shuker for 'Doodle's first service, I have enlisted the extraordinary talents of Mr Andy Guyton, who is based in East Anglia. This chap is the very same chap employed by Brian May to build his replica 'red specials' - no, not the cheapy ones from soundcontrol.. the ones with 3 noughts after the price tag!

Well.. I figure that if Mr May can entrust his personal guitar to the man.. thats good enough for me!

Anyway.. top bloke.. check him out..

Has he done the work on your bass yet? - he seems well acquainted with those other '6-string soprano bass' things like what Mr May plays. I expect he'll be good - but at what price for a setup (if you don't mind me asking?)

He is in the process of doing the work at the moment. To be honest, the prices are reasonable. I think it would vary from job to job.. but my 7er isn't your usual 'set up' in terms of what most bass players want, so I'd expect it to cost a little more I guess. I'm not sure what the going rates around the UK are, but he's cheaper than rsome idiculous london prices!

When the 'red special' was being 'cloned' by Andy, the guitar was actually X-Ray'd in order to find out the exact size of all the acoustic compartments and and other parts of the build that couldn't be 'seen'. Now, thats attention to detail! I was amazed! Apparently, the company that Andy has used to make bespoke metal hardware uses designs with a tolerance of up to 100th of a mm!!!

A couple of new guys to watch out for are Joe and Dave @ 'Austin Guitar Shop'. They have started a new business off producing guitars (KS Guitars) but are obviously also running repairs, maintenance, custom paint and finishing. They are based in Blyth, Northumberland and at the moment are contactable via email austinguitarshop@googlemail.com or mobile +447896759715 +447918646359 They've just dressed and set up a couple of my basses and I'm well impressed, they even go to the trouble of taking every customers bass set up measurements which they keep on file for future reference. Prices are very reasonable to start with but even better as they are initially offering 10% - 12.5% off work in lieu of a favour to Basschat (for the discount mention warwickhunt when you contact them). The favour is that they intend producing a bass, they have their own stamp on what it should look like and be spec'd with but would like some feedback from bassists... watch this space.
Variously using Warwick, Musicman or Bolin basses.
Played through; Thunderfunk + TC RS210 cabs
Whilst imbibing; Fine Wine or Bottles of 'Dog'.

Jon Haire - Guitar Services - mainly setups etc - 01733 348661
Duncan Wales at Organic Guitars - again, a custom builder - http://www.organicguitars.co.uk

Ian and myself started E Basses just over 7 years ago; we parted company around 2 years ago (very amicably) after he decided to take a break from building etc but he is now producing instruments again and offers very competitive prices for all kinds of repair/setup work! Both Jon and Duncan are also very highly respected in this vicinity.

Cheers.
