Guitar MOT – Making your guitar roadworthy
Brand new guitars (which leave the factory with only a basic setup) and older guitars will benefit greatly from a professional set-up so they perform well and allow for a better playing experience. Scoot will discuss your preferences and playing style with you prior to carrying out any work.
