Amazing, friendly, cheap service!5
Couldn't recommend enough!5
The first things I noticed within moments of meeting him were his genuinely friendly manner and comfortably knowledgeable way of talking over my requirements with me. Excellent first impression.
Both of the guitars I've gotten back from him are playing better than they ever have. With the Epiphone Les Paul I just got back from him yesterday, I genuinely worried I'd messed up the truss rod nut too much for him to work with, but after a bit of research into tools he was still able to help. Been jamming away on it for hours since yesterday.
Great service, excellent quality of work, reasonable prices and turnaround time. I've really struggled to find a workshop in London where I've been consistently happy with the work but I think I've finally found my go to place. Lots of upgrades/repairs planned for the future which I will definitely be bringing to String King.
Superb guitar service5
New nut, replaced pickups, full set up with my 10-60 strings in D standard on my 2013 Gibson SG.
Its like a different beast. John really brought my guitar to life and to its full potential for my style of hard playing.
Even with a good thrashing it plays with ease and stays perfectly in tune, intonated right up to the 24th fret!
It sounds so good.
I cant reccommend String King highly enough. Amazing.
Very Highly Recommended5
He recently rebuilt a 1970 ish Avon EB0 bass for me, which entailed some major neck surgery, electrics and bridge. All i can say is wow! The bass i received back is now a tool for gigging. The attention to detail, reasonable costs and turnaround times make String King the tech to go to, if in or around London.
Very highly recommended.
