Sollophonic Guitars – Constructor, Converter, Repairer and Renovator of Electric and Acoustic Guitars.
I am a trained musical instrument repairer with years of experience. I have also a lot of experience of playing all types and styles of guitar and knowing how to get the best out of them.
I offer a wide range of repairs and services to guitarists both local and beyond.
Many new guitars do not play well “straight out of the box”. I can turn your new guitar into a highly playable, very satisfying instrument. Let me “set-up” your guitar to your requirements. I believe that many of our budget instruments are the best budget instruments that have been made. Compared to the cheap instruments of 20 years ago they are light years ahead. Their weak points are often the pick-ups and the hardware that they come with. Adding new strings, a new bone nut and new pick-ups can transform these instruments into guitars with great tones. I can do this for you.
I can also breathe new life into tired, old instruments too. Many older guitars benefit from a few simple upgrades to give them a new lease of life and make them into wonderful instruments again.
Andy Solloway- Resonator Guitar Specialist
I am a seasoned specialist in the repair, set up and optimising of resonator guitars. These guitars are different from ordinary guitars and need specialist care and attention.
Resonator guitars of all kinds benefit from specialist set-up to improve and enhance their playing and tone. Contact me and let me bring your resonator back to life. New cones, new nut, new strings and a proper set-up of these guitars can work wonders.
Many Resonator guitars need some work to optimize their play-ability and sound, and they also need specialists who know what they are doing, to do this. They are nowhere near as straightforward as electric and acoustic guitars, and replacing parts and setting-up is something that Sollophonic Guitars can do to your resophonic guitar that needs some TLC
