Ackworth Guitar Setups is an independent top-tier guitar repair shop based in Manchester, Leeds & Huddersfield


Founded in 2012 by Tristan Johnson, we are a team of experienced guitar technicians/ luthiers who are deidcated to acheiving mastery in guitar repair. We have led the way in guitar repair in the UK for the last 10 years becoming the UK's only chain of qualified guitar and amplifier repair shops.

However, we want to push it further and aim to raise the standard in the world of guitar repair. To that end over the last few years we have worked with smaller guitar repair companies to support continued learning opportunities for other repair shops in the UK.

Ackworth Guitar Setups currently has 3 workshops offering guitar repairs and guitar setups in Manchester, Leeds and Huddersfield. We also have a number of collection/drop off points across the North of England. Our main workshop offers a 3,500 square feet fully equipped guitar repair workshop that allows us to do all manner or work from restringing to total strip down restoration. This fully humidity controlled space means that whilst in our care your guitar is kept at optimil humidity. Our fully insured workshops give you the piece of mind that your guitar is in good hands.

Our electronics workshop can do anything from guitar set ups, wiring mods, fret levelling, neck resets, building a bespoke pickup, to fixing and building valve amplifiers and pedals. With a firm eye on education and the future of the repair industry, our workshop turns into a classroom to offer students the chance to learn the skills we employ.

You can get a full list of our service and prices here. As a future customer of Ackworth Guitar Setups, we look forward to meeting you really soon.
