My father (an experienced bassist) and I share an interest in guitar repair, maintenance and modification. That's why we set up Woodpecker Guitar Repair.


Whether your guitar or bass needs fresh strings, a full setup, hardware replaced, wiring soldered, or more, we promise to deliver with the highest of standards and care.

We both have years of experience setting up and maintaining guitars for gigging and recording and have completed an in-person course with GTC Academy under boutique luthier James Collins.


Work is carried out from our home studio. Instrument collection and/or delivery can be discussed at an extra charge within a 10 mile radius of Great Missenden, Buckinghamshire.
