“I’ve known shane for over 8 years now and his work is outstanding!!! I have took numerous guitars to him over the years, he is the only guy i trust with my instruments!!! you can take any guitar to him and he can make it into a seriously amazing customised rock n roll machine!!! He has become a good friend of mine and his guitar skills are like no one i have ever seen. I’ve nicked a few riffs and licks off him over the years.

The yorkshire music scene wouldn’t be what it is today if shane wasn’t around, a true legend!!!”

Jonny Firth (Cry Baby Cry)


“Shane is a fantastic guitar tech & all over great guy. ┬áHe’s done all my guitars & basses since I was introduced to him in the early 2000′s. Shane offers quality services, with reliable mends, & fantastic setups! There’s nobody else I’d trust to work on my guitars & basses. In fact I recommend all my students to go to him too, he’s simply that good. “

John Southerden (Professional musician & tutor)


“I took my 1960s reissue strat to Shane to have it refretted. Shane replaced the original frets with some jumbo frets.

The action on the guitar is now so low, it plays like a dream! My main influence is Mark Knopfler and the way Shane has calibrated my guitar is ideal for that style playing.

I would always have my guitars repaired by Shane as he takes such pride in his work and brings out the best in my guitars.”

Paul Harvey


“Just to say a big thank you for restoring my vintage Framus Star Bass. It has never played, looked or sounded better! Thanks Shane.”

Bob Plews (Honeybeez 168)


“Shane has setup, repaired and resprayed lots of my guitars. The result has always been exceptional. I wouldn’t trust anyone else with my guitars. He is also very lefty friendly which was also a definite plus for me and can’t be said of all luthiers.”
