UK Specialists

  1. Hey :),

    My Lovely darling GB needs a really good setup and general overhall fret-dressing.. trus-rod adjustments,, bridge adjustment and all the bells and whistles...

    Just wondering who Fellow UK TB'ers recommend for this :) I would send it to Bernie at GB but he is far far too busy...and I am very reluctent to send it the places like The Bass Gallery as I have my case crushed before during transit and don't want to take the rist again.... really looking for places in the north of England that I could get to on the Train..

    I would really like to support the individual specialist... you know the type ..little man in his garage sort of thing.. who do it out of the love of doing it.. there was a guy near my home town in a place called Huddersfield he was 85 and did it in his spare time...and he was amazing but he passed away last year ...

    Any info ..websites.. telephone numbers and stuff would be great.. :)...

    How about John Shuker? He's in Sheffield.

    There's also the Bass Centre in Manchester and further afield, Overwater.
     
  3. I am currently having a custom made by Jon Shuker a Elite Bolt-On 5er but he is very busy I hate to bug him further....I think I will probably use Electromusic in Doncaster...

    any more info?
