Q: Can I try before I buy?
A: The custom refurbish range are available to view and try at our Creature Custom shop in Tredegar *subject to Covid 19 restrictions. The production range does sell out quite quickly but if we have one built and in store you are more than welcome subject to Covid restrictions
Q: What about quality control?
A: Because our guitars are hand crafted by our luthiers and not factory reproductions. We can ensure that everything has been tried tested and measured until it is perfect even though every guitar will have it's own unique character. Our luthiers take great pride in their work and if its not right they'd rather put it down and start again, than pass it to a customer as defective piece. We also store the wood in a controlled environment and use top of the range moisture meters throughout the process to ensure your body and neck will not be prone to, bending, splits or cracks.
Q Do you provide guitar repair and setups?
A: Absolutely! Guitar repairs need to be diagnosed individually so give us and email and we'll call you back. Are standard cleaning and setup fees are £40.
