  • Guitar Setups - Glasgow, Scotland

    Hey

    Can anyone tell me the best place to get a full pro setup??? I need to get some work done a bunch of guitars, so want a great place.

    I know of 2 that are highly rated..............

    Strung Out Guitars

    and Jimmy Egypt

    Anyone let me know their experience with these guys. Ideally for electrical, refrets and fret dress.

    Any help much appreciated

    Cheers

          Are all techs in Glasgow called Jimmy?

                considering the quality of the acoustics that Moon makes, I'd be tempted to go there, although I know a few people who have been to Jimmy Egypt and were pleased - does he still work out of Otago Street?

                  Jimmy Moon would be my first pick, although I shouldn't think his work comes too cheap.

                    I was hoping to find someone who had tried Strung Out Guitars. They let me borrow an amp once very kindly, but I'd rather find someone who'd used them

                    Moon guitars are great, but I didn't know he did repairs. I live really close to there, so that would be good.

                    A few people have said they use Jimmy Egypt and I've only heard good things

                    Strung Out Guitars are by far the newest on the block, but have a pretty impressive client list.

                    Just wish I could find someone who's had a full pro setup

                    Everyone in Glasgow is called Jimmy. Even the ladies

                    Cheers

                      And I think he's still based out of the old CC Music

                            I guess give him a bell and ask him. The one good thing about using real pros for basic work is that you can learn a lot from them, they'll often spot stuff that you don't and improve aspects you hadn't thought of and theyre excellent people to know when you come to buy a special guitar.

                            I'd say definitely give him a bell

                              I had my LP refretted and completely (re)setup - including new Bare Knuckle pickups by Jimmy Egypt.

                              It was a brilliant job, even down to replacing the fret binding. Looking at it, there's no way you can tell it's been refretted.

                              Another place to consider is the tech at Guitar Guitar, Trongate. I can't remember his name though.
