Every instrument is different,
as indeed is every player
Should you contact The Guitar Doctor, I will always first discuss your requirements and complete a diagnosis of your instrument. I will then prepare a quote for you… and you are under no obligation to use me… I hope my high quality work and competitive rates will speak for themselves.

My philosophy is that every instrument is different, as indeed is every player and the repair man must factor all of this into every job. Instruments can be set to your own spec, the recommended factory spec or whatever is required at that specific time, seasons change and so does the wood. Sometimes, a re-setup is required and this is carried out free of charge if within 6 weeks of the initial setup.
The size of jobs range from a simple clean up and re-string to a complete neck re-set, restoration, re-fret and re-finish. To use a cliché, no job is too small. Parts are sourced nationally and internationally, replacement or upgrade – all available.
Tools and methods used are conventional and sometimes cutting edge – using only the latest, high quality tools and equipment. My workshop contains mainly Stewart Macdonald (Stewmac) tools, jigs etc, one, the ‘Jack Installation Tool’ I invented, they now sell these and mentioned me on their website and catalogue, pretty chuffed about that!
My Strat had a buzz in the studio so I took it to Julyan to take a look. After three coats of shielding and a pick-up height reset, the guitar sounds better than ever! Thanks.
I’ve been using Julyan for over 15 years, he has worked on dozens of my guitars In that time. From refrets on vintage guitars, electronic mods setups and component swaps, Great service and advice. Thanks Julyan!!
Julyan has just sorted my Reverend P390 out. Setup and fret dressing. It is now so superb. Thank you very much.
Julyan is the best! He’s taken superb care of my 1965 Martin D-28, my custom made Andy Manson guitar and the Ibanez electric I borrowed from Michael Chapman. I know they’re all in safe hands with Julyan. And he’s a lovely fellow to boot.
