Anyone have a good contact for setup in London?

  1. Anyone recommend someone to set up my P in London?

    Its funny – I’m happy changing the breaks on my car but I would rather leave my bass setup to a pro!

    Thanks folks

    Hmmm.... not London, but not too far, the tech who works for "Machinehead" in Hitchin (Nth Herts 35 miles or so from London) is one of the BEST in the business.

    I'll second that. Martin did a great job setting my Yamaha SBV500 last year - £35 (inc. a new set of strings on).
