Our Head Technician at Sound Affects is Thomas Nilsen. Experienced luthier, guitar technician and pickup builder. During his 30+ years in the business Thomas has worked on guitars for many high profile players including Billy Gibbons with whom he still works on a regular basis.

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 technicians 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.
Here are some examples of our typical charges:
Note: Pickup Installations are guide figures due to wiring combinations varying in complexity, and are subject to a full quote. New strings may also be required and potentially a setup.
NOTE: We will install our own Cream T Pickups free of charge - on a like for like basis.
Our technician has the capacity to execute specialist repairs, subject to inspection. If your instrument has a particular issue, please contact us to discuss in depth. Specialist repairs may include:
NOTE: Guitars must be picked up within 4 weeks of notification that your work has been completed. There will be a storage charge of £5/week thereafter and the guitar will be disposed of if not collected within 6 months of the work being completed.
Please make contact for a quote. We'll only start work on your instrument once you're happy with the price agreed.
