As a guitar player, there aren't many things better than having your instrument receive a professional setup. Perfect string height and intonation, fresh strings, crackle-free electronics, smooth polished frets and many other factors can all make your guitar feel like new.

At Sound Affects, we offer a a range of repair services for guitars, basses and other string instruments, all of which are carried out in-store by our own technician to a very high standard.

So if your guitar is beginning to feel tired, worn down and more difficult to play than it did when you received it, get in touch with us - A professional set up can get your guitar back to the condition you know and love.

Note - 'Elixirs' are a brand of strings that are coated to prevent corrosion from moisture in your hands and the atmosphere. They last much longer than regular strings - staying bright and responsive, and never going brittle. The coating makes the strings feel smoother and more playable beneath your fingers - They are worth your consideration when getting your instrument re-strung.
