Frequently asked questions

Where are you located?


I am located in Portland Works, Randall St, just outside Sheffield City Centre. You can find a map on the Contact page of this website.




Can I drop by?


Yes! But you will need to get in touch to make an appointment. Please see the Contact page and get in touch.




Do you do left handed guitars?


Absolutely yes!




What pickups do you use?


Many of them I wind myself to custom specs on my purpose built winder using only the best materials and wire. Custom orders can be placed for pickups from other winders and manufacturers and I can make recomendations. I am a big fan of Mojo pickups if leftfield is what you are after. Be aware though, many of these winders will have waiting lists of their own that may impact build time.




What hardware and parts  do you use?


I make as much as I can make myself. However, there are some bits I cannnot do. I use Gotoh tuners, Gotoh, Staytrem & Faber bridges, Bigsby vibratos, Jecar fretwire, CTS pots, Switchcraft switches & jack sockets, Gavitt cloth covered wire, vintage Russian paper-in-oil capacitors and the occasional vintage or oddball OEM part. If you have a part or specs you would like on a build, just let me know and I'll be happy to include it.




What wood is this?


I use and have in stock a large selection of timber species such as; Old stock Brazilian Mahogany FSC certified South American Mahogany Khaya Black Walnut Black Limba (Korina) Swamp Ash American alder American Hard Rock Maple Amazon/Indian/Madagascar Rosewood Cocobolo Ebony
