Road worn bass resurrection

Fender jazz bass set up & repair

Tom, our leader axe builder can fix and set up your bass the way you want.  

If your bass needs TLC, he's your man. 

This red Fender Jazz bass had fret buzz, a dull / muted top string and,

when it was played it just sounded out of tune, even tho the strings were tuned perfectly.

Tom prescribed truss rod adjustment, (!!!) a touch of fret re-crowning and smoothing

off the top string on the bridge saddle. When Tom stripped the bass apart,

he found dry solder joints and a load of loose scratch plate screws.  

This bass has seen some action, it was almost on its last legs, but now,

after its full overhaul, it's been resurrected.

It sounds awesome, it plays so sweet.


Axe 3 Les Paul

Axe 3 Custom Les Paul

This standard Les Paul has had a major overhaul. It's was a concept piece
to see how far we can push etching of a winder range of guitars.

This took some serious setting up, but we got there in the end.
AXE 3 now feels and plays like a quality Les Paul should. 

Fun to play and now has liquid action.


Axe 2 Stratocaster

AXE 2 Strat Custom Build

A custom build Stratocaster was a "from scratch" build. Its got a maple neck
with rosewood neck and a solid alder hardwood body, two key fundamental ingredients
to create a quality toneful guitar. Featuring a single Seymour Duncan JB humbucker in
the bridge position controlled by one volume pot, allows for the etch design to take full effect.

Tom has gigged AXE 2, he says "The hench SD-JB on a Strat style guitar
creates a huge thick tone with that classic strat twang. This axe through a 5150 amp
will shred through any mix, simple, easy, awesome". 

As a final addition to the simple wiring, this axe also features complete
internal shielding, giving perfect grounding to remove excess hum from any high gain amp.

Turn this axe up to 11 baby!


Axe 1 Fender Telecaster

The first axe

I was instantly inspired to create something cool when I saw the Laser Etcher
at Brighton Barclays Eagle Labs. My initial reaction was to get the awesome design Carl Sutton
put together for the debut Barriers ep launch.

A massive thanks to Jon at Barclays for helping me build the "Laser-Ready" files and
get them bang on. Words can't express how awesome this custom guitar design project was and
I can't wait to show it off at the next load of gigs!

PS yes you can touch the design (it's all bumpy) and it doesn't hinder
the performance or playability of the guitar.

I hope this is a first step to creating new and sick instruments using the latest technology.
