After chatting to James on the phone I booked a one day course to learn to re-fret my old SG.

Upon arrival, I got a brief tour round Crimson Guitars and was introduced to Chris.  Chris was extremely knowledgeable and personable and offered advice and tuition throughout the day.  I learnt a huge amount and am very pleased with the results of the refret.

Completely worth  the money and an excellent day.  I can’t reccommend this highly enough.  I will book another course in the future.  Thanks Chris!
