We will always try and accommodate the exact build that you want but we are limited either by time or availability, with enough lead time there is a possibility to be able to deliver for example whatever colour choices you choose but this does cost extra and can not be guaranteed, if we have a couple of preferred custom choices then this greatly improves the chances of getting your custom build right, please feel free to email or call us with your suggestions or questions about what looks right etc and we will happily advise as best we can.

As much as we would like to honour every whim the course is as much about the learning as well as the aesthetics.

You are welcome to bring a guitar, once we have worked on the workshop guitars we can use your guitars for reference and assessment, we would prefer with the skills that you would have learnt to make any adjustments to the setup after the course in your own time.

The course fees are payable ideally by BACS (online bank payment) or PayPal (fees/charges will apply) with a 50% deposit to confirm the booking a minimum of 30 days before the course date with the balance due 14 days prior to the course. Invoices will be raised once confirmed and 7 days before they are due, bank details supplied on the Invoice. (Ideally we would confirm your booking at least 6 weeks in advance to ensure all the parts are available)

Breaks will usually consist of tea or coffee and an also provide an oppurtunity to answer any further questions or discussions. Lunch is not provided, we have good kitchen facilities so please do bring your own food to either store or to prepare. The build course offers some opportunity to head over the road to the Pub maybe on the Saturday or Sunday but best to play that by ear!

We usually take 2 20 min breaks and a 1 hour lunch.

Tea and coffee provided. All you can drink

All students who complete either the Pro Setup Course or the Custom Build course will get a Certificate of achievement. We are also more than happy to offer a written or verbal referral for either higher education or for employment.
