Located within our Gladesville store, Vaughan Ashcroft is the man in charge of our full service tech workshop and is the only tech we trust to work on each and every one of the guitars listed on our website and hanging on our walls.

He specialises primarily in repairs, maintenance and restoration of used and vintage guitars (especially Japanese ones) but he's happy to work on just about anything. With over 15 years of repair experience, Vaughan's eye for detail and enthusiasm for guitar repairs is unrivalled. He's also the preferred Sydney area guitar tech for Harron Custom Guitars and has received extensive personal mentorship from the legendary Mick Harron himself.

Vaughan offers in-house services including (but not limited to): 

  • Basic setups and routine maintenance.
  • Truss adjustments and repairs.
  • Nut slotting, lubricating or replacement.
  • Fret levelling, crowning and polishing.
  • Re-fretting.
  • Headstock, neck and other structural repairs.
  • Pickup replacement.
  • Pot and switch replacement/repair.
  • General advice about parts/repairs.


    Unlike many other techs, Vaughan prides himself on being very reasonable with turnaround times as he knows how important it is to have your guitar in your hands rather than on a bench.

    Get in touch and let us bring your cool old guitar back to it's former glory. Either pop into the shop during Vaughan's opening hours (12-5pm Tuesday to Saturday), give Vaughan a call directly on 0450 347 804, or fill in the form below
