Service and repairs

Here at John Douglas Music we service and repair many types of instruments including all types of guitars, violins, banjos, mandolins, keyboards, electric pianos, PA Equipment, Valve and transistor guitar amplifiers.

Bring in your item and we will assess the work involved. We are happy to give a no obligation quote before we commence any work.

Unfortunately for electronic items we have a small charge to assess the work but it will be taken off if we go ahead with the repair.

In 2012 we welcomed Alec Rafferty to our team. Alec was a time served joiner for 26 years but had a real passion for guitars.

With Alec's experience of repairing guitars we were able to offer services which previously would have to go to the "City" repairers. We are able to offer neck resets, Re-frets, Complete rewires and rebuilds.

Since being with us Alec has repaired many different instruments such as Keyboards, stage pianos, amplifiers as well as any stringed instrument you would care to mention.

In 2016 Alec built his own hand-wired valve amp using Schematics from a classic British manufacturer which he still plays through today.

Alec was given a nice piece of mahogany from a friend so during the second lockdown in 2021, he decided to diversify into the world of guitar building. He built a single cut flat top guitar which has since been completed.

A number of local musicians have shown interest in commissioning a custom guitar after playing it, with his first commission coming in 2022.

Any repairs you require please get in touch.
