LONSDALE GARDENS, CROSBY VILLA, MARYPORT
Hi there, and a very warm welcome to my website. My name is John Forster and I teach and repair guitar's. I also repair keyboards, banjo's, mandolin's etc. I am based just outside of Maryport in Cumbria. If you are not familiar with my company and your first contact with me is online, I would be pleased to hear from you!. Please let me know what your needs or questions are and I will be more than happy to help.
If you have a problem with your guitar there is only so much you can do with Blue-tac and sticky tape so why not give me a call. (and No! this is not me in my workshop). I generally have a fast turnaround with my repairs and set-up's so you wont be without your baby for long.
Just look at the smile on this little fellow. He's just had a full set-up and now he's raring to go.
Even a new guitar has a good chance of being in need of a set-up. After it leaves the factory it could be months before it’s sold in the shop so who knows how many grubby fingers have had a little tinkle on it.
What more could you ask for, a nice day, a hammer and a guitar neck. I do have a workshop by the way but I didn't have to dust it before I took the pic.
This is me in the 'Let's make a Banjo bridge' department. Very Hi-Tech
I DO A STRAT CONVERSION THAT ENABLES YOU TO HAVE TWO EXTRA SOUNDS MAKING 7 IN TOTAL INSTEAD OF THE STANDARD 5 SELECTION. IT INVOLVES NO ROUTING OR ALTERATION TO YOUR GUITAR. EXCEPT FOR THE AWESOME NEW SOUNDS YOU GET YOU WOULDN'T NOTICE ANYTHING HAD BEEN DONE.************** GIVE ME A CALL FOR DETAILS
This is my latest creation. I don't know why I made it because I have quite a few guitars, but it's sure better than painting and decorating!!! I made the body out of Tulip wood which to be honest I'd never come across before but it was really good to work with and has a lovely feel to it. I just gave it a oil finish and it's as smooth as a baby's botty! Not that I go around rubbing baby's botty's but you know what I mean. I fitted two P90 type pick-up's with a single volume and tone control and it sound's and plays fabulous.
I ALSO HAVE A COLLECTION OF 125 SHADOWS Mp3 BACKING TRACKS FOR SALE FOR ONLY £15.00. inc, Uk Postage. PLEASE CONTACT ME FOR DETAILS.
If you have any enquiries relating to my business only, please use the form on my contact page but please don't use it to post any other links. Thanks
