Virtuoso Guitar Polish and Cleaner available online

I'm very happy to announce that Virtuoso Premium Polish and Virtuoso Premium Cleaner are now available from our website:

You can chose either of the Virtuoso Premium products there or buy one of each and save some money!

I've noticed that just about every single Gibson that comes into the workshop gets a polish with this stuff, sometimes just the back of the neck - and the reaction from customers is always confusion..."How did you clean the neck - it feels amazing!"


Humidity and Temperature controlled workshop

The workshop is now humidity and temperature controlled.

Humidity isn't often a major problem in the UK as its fairly stable (unlike parts of the US where it can be a real issue) but its something worth having as I have more 'scratch build' wood in storage nowadays.

The extra heating is appreciated at the moment too!

Here's a beautiful SG, great to play - typical big warm tone of an SG.

It came into the workshop recently for a re-spray, but it needed a good bit more than that! It's had an interesting history, owned by Jonny Marr originally, then by Haven in the nineties, and found its way to its current owner through friends. It was painted white with Dulux gloss (ouch) on top of a nasty layer of silver on top of the original cherry. There was a huge break across the control cavity that had been filled with epoxy many moons ago and a headstock break t' boot!

Its looking sweet now though, and its ready for the next adventure! Ka-Pow!
