pmt guitar wall

Housed in PMT Manchester, with the largest guitar wall in Europe.


The Guitar Repair Workshop is an in-house repair and restoration facility for stringed instruments.

What do we do? Pretty much everything from replacing a single string to building you any guitar you can imagine.  Most commonly we provide a range of standard set ups, fret dressing and parts upgrading service.
Although we are an authorised Gibson and Taylor Warranty Service Centre, we look after all makes of guitar and have accounts with most of the major brands including Fender, Martin, Ibanez, Ernie Ball Music Man, Warwick, etc


We  are main dealers for BareKnuckle Pick Ups and L.R Baggs Acoustic guitar pick ups

We also hold limited stock of Allparts, WD, John East, Seymour Duncan, Dimarzio and Fishman. If we don’t have it, we can usually get it for you.  What we can’t find, we can often either improvise, build from scratch or recommend an online supplier or website that might be able to help.

Although we carry out all types of guitar repairs we can also help you decide the best route for upgrading your instrument. We often help with choosing pick ups, and know the right questions to ask to help you get it right whether its an electric or acoustic as we have over 15 years experience in the field.  We think its important to make the right decision before taking the plunge and we pride ourselves on our honesty in these matters.

Why choose us to repair your guitar over the other guys?

Well, we perform repairs for many of the big stores in the UK, as well as their staff.  We’re extremely proud of our Gibson Authorisation and our Taylor Gold Standard Service certificate. We’ve had extended touring and high level studio experience but we’re just as happy putting a single string on! At the end of the day, all that really matters is the music – and we’re here to help when problems get in the way of that.
