Just a line to say thanks for fitting the new pickups to my 18 year old Les Paul last week. With the re-fret you did previously its now sounding and playing better than it ever did from new.

I won't use anyone else now - and am recommending him to all my guitarist chums.
Jim Hindhaugh, Darlington
Fraser you're the man, thank you!
Chris Steenson, Bradford
Fraser has not only impeccably setting up my strat more time than I can count, he's also responsible for the success of the mods, including and especially some very nifty wiring mods. I couldn't recommend him and his skills highly enough
Cheers Fraser, and keep up the good work!
Stefano Guidicelli, Leeds
Just had 3 of my guitars set up through Fraser. He did a top job on all of them at a very reasonable price and they all play exactly as I like them.
I have been using Fraser's service for over 2 years now and he is my first port of call when any work needs doing. I would recommend him to anyone without a second thought.
Thanks for your service ;)
Sorted my guitar out beautifully and saved me a lot of money on what I thought needed doing.
My guitar plays better than it has done in years and I haven't had this much fun in playing in about as long!
Thanks muchly! =D

Fraser worked miracles with a Westfield SR383WR that had a neck like a twisted banana. It now plays great and I use it as my back-up guitar. Now sending my old Yamaha electro-acoustic for a service. This luthier knows his onions!
James Adsetts, Bradford
Fraser is the only guy that I will take my guitars to. In the last few years, he has had my everything from my PRS McCarty to Gibson Les Paul to my 90's Fenix Strat copy and did a cracking job of every single one. Top bloke who looks after his customers.
Simon Roe, Leeds
Fantastic job of setting up my Squier telecaster, followed by immaculate repair work & great friendly after sales service. Not to mention ridiculously cheap - massive thanks Fraser!
Simon King, Leeds
Just a note to say my 25year old Yamaha RGX feels and plays better than it ever has.... I'm loving it!! Thanks
Justin Barnes, Horsforth
Fraser has recently upgraded the pickups on my Les Paul and the professionalism he shows in both his manner and work is second to none.
In the past he has set up my Epiphone, flipped the magnet to create the 'out of phase' tone. He has also set up and levelled the frets on my Gibson.
Many thanks Fraser for helping me chase the 'Peter Green' tone!!
John Mac, Leeds
Fraser, I have been meaning to pass on my thanks for the great set up you did on both my electric (SG) and acoustic (PR5-E) epiphones.
The sound and action is so much better on the acoustic, so much so my brother now wants it back as he prefers it to the one he is using for gigging. And my guitar teacher also keeps finding any excuse to give it a play.
The electric sounds so much brighter and clearer - and they both look spanking new.
Nathan Jones, Leeds
Just a quick thanks for setting up my new Ibanez, and for sorting out the action when it was just slightly too low. Great service will definitely use again!!!!!!
Julian Braithwaite, Leeds
I'm really blown away with your repair of my Kramer broken headstock. You exceeded anything I could have hoped for to put this right. When I first brought it to you I'd have settled for just being able to play it again, but what you've achieved cosmetically is outstanding - it's as good as new. Thanks again for a great job.
Dean Money, Thackley
Thank you for restringing for a left hander and tuning the guitar. It looks and sounds better now.It was a pleasure to deal with someone who knows his trade and has the time to discuss and explain to a complete novice without making you feel like a pratt. Your work and attitude is top class. I would not hesitate to recommend you. Kind regards
Al Perry, Leeds
Fraser has worked on my last 6 guitars and I trust his expertise implicitly. If you want top quality work done in good time and at very reasonable rates then he is the go to guy.
Hugh Davies, Wakefield
Just wanted you to know how pleased I am with my Nashville guitar after the repair. The neck had been snapped in half when our cats knocked it over, smacking against the edge of a table. The instrument, now 32 years old sounds sweeter than ever and the action is just right.
I'll make a point of recommending you to as many people as possible.
Bob Naylor, Leeds
Fraser has setup my 5 American Strats and a PRS, all with trems, over the last 4 years. I owned an Ovation which had been virtually unplayable and stored for 10 years. Fraser did a superb job and needless to say it is now used regularly. He has turned instruments, some copies of teles etc. into highly playable units for my friends.
Having played strats for over 40 years, I am pretty good at setting them up, but nowhere in the league of Fraser Callum - he is superb. An artist in his work, who is a gentleman and a provider of an excellent service - all at a reasonable price. My Les Paul is the next on my to do list. Give him a try - you will not be disappointed in any respect. Even if your instrument plays OK, you will be amazed at the difference a setup by Fraser will achieve.
Bob Plews, Huddersfield
Hi Fraser - just a big thank you for your work on my Fender Custom Shop Jazz Bass. As soon as I picked it up it felt somehow 'right' and that was before I'd even played a note! The action is just great exactly as I like it and the pick-ups are now properly balanced and the guitar sounds and feels great - can't put it down. Most certainly will consult you again and you have my highest recommendation - Thanks again.
Marcus Mitchell, Leeds
I've taken my US Tele to Fraser twice now for set-up, new strings and general TLC. Not only is Fraser clearly an expert in is field but he combines this with an approach to customer service and going the extra mile which is second to none. I'm far from a professional guitarist and Fraser does a geat job in making you feel welcome and taking his time to explain things. The biggest compliment I can give is that he will treat your guitar like it was his own.
Sean Pattison, Leeds
Fraser has always provided me with an impeccable service. From setting up my Ibanez 7-String(w/trem) amazingly to fitting new pick-ups on my Tele and rewiring it to the utterly amazing job he did building me a custom guitar. From the wood choices, hardware, pick-ups and construction it is one of the best guitars I have ever played and will ever own.
Just want to say a massive thanks to Fraser
Jake Mulhern, Leeds
I had an awful incident where I dropped my very expensive and rare Dean guitar, causing the headstock to snap in the most awkward of places. I took it in to Fraser, and he fixed it so perfect, you can't even tell it has been broken, he really worked a miracle. All the set ups he has done on my Dean guitars have been fantastic, they play so well because of it!
Thanks a lot Fraser!
Adam Newsome, Leeds
I brought my ibanez to fraser for a fret recrown and set up. And its never played so good the action is LOW my fingers fly across the fret board and tremalo works better than ever. FIRST CLASS JOB! went to his workshop told him what i wanted and he did EXACTLY what i wanted simple as that. THANKS Fraser great guy and even greater tech.
Rob McDonald, Leeds
Just a quick note to say thanks for doing such a good job on my LP. I've had a proper chance to play it now and it absolutely flies. So much so that i've been using it to record stuff my 'shred' Chravel can't do - you've really transformed it to its full potential. I know it must've taken you a long time to do and i can see that you've paid loads of attention to detail with everything you've done.
I will probably be bringing the Charvel in now for you to give that the treatment before I go out on tour in October (though the radius difference between the eBay floyd and the neck may be causing the problems - I anticipate saddle shims made out of Coke can being the only solution!)

Tony Armitage, Leeds
I brought my Warwick bass into P.M.T. Leeds on Saturday, and after you had worked your magic on the trussrod it now plays like a different guitar. Once again thank you very much. I am, also, in no doubt that I would recommend your service to any musician - amateur, professional young or old!
Lee Jeffrey, Leeds
Hi mate, well I used the 72 Custom Tele you sorted out for me last night. Used it all night and I have to say you have worked miracles.
What a first class job you've done.
I can't thank you enough mate,
Graham Ford, York
The set up on the Faith was brilliant, after two failed attempts by someone else. The Guitar sings and my daughter says it is her very favourite thing!Graham
Martin Sowerby, Barnsley
I have had 3 top end Fenders either set up, re fretted, or built by Fraser and every one of them was finished to the very highest of standards. The Telecaster that Fraser built for me was recently played by a very high profile session player, and 80's signed recording artist who said it was the best sounding and playing Tele he had ever used, and he has played an awful lot of Telecasters.
The rates and service are both reasonable and friendly, with a good turn around time, and as I stated the guitars play fantastic. My son recently passed his grade 8 Rock School exam with distinction using the Telecaster Fraser built.
Christophe Notebaert, Sowerby Bridge
Thank you Fraser.
I found again my guitar (30 years with this old lady, you start to know each other); the sound and the sustain are better.It sings again.
Kamil Lowczynski, Leeds
I've picked up my Schecter C7 Hellraiser from you today. I'm never doing any setup myself again. This is totally amazing. Guitar feels so much better. I'm playing and laughing it just so good I feel like I've bought top shelf guitar today.
You have done a great job. I'm going to give you another one to setup next week.
Shaun Bell, Leeds
I'm sure he swapped my old poorly looked after Gordon Smith for a new one. Top quality job as always. Cheers my man.
Daniel Beugel, Leeds
A little note to say how pleased I am with the setup and fret work you performed on my Ibanez! It sounds so much better higher up the neck and the action is spot on mate! Professional service, great bloke and good value for money.
Maybe when I crack House of the rising sun and Smoke on the water we can fire in some 'proper' 9v pick ups haha! ;)Thanks again
Paul Tasker, Horsforth, Leeds
Just a quickie to say a huge thank you for the set up on my Crafter D6. It is as if I you had given me a brand new instrument, one which is now very playable. I am really looking forward to 'getting to know' this guitar. You have lowered the action superbly so I can now enjoy how this instrument feels as I play it. I would recommend anyone to have you set up a guitar since the difference it makes is astounding.
Jeremy Howden, Leeds
Second guitar Fraser has worked on for me, the latest being a Fender Telecaster JD. All I can say is great work. Fraser is such a nice guy to work with, as he has a genuine interest in the customer's requirements.
I've just dropped another guitar off with Fraser and just know it will come back playing superb. Can't wait.
A really talented gentleman.
Thanks very much.
Dave Atha, Horsforth, Leeds
I recently acquired a 20 year old Music Man Silhouette that had been sat in its case, virtually unplayed, for all that time.
There were some tuning issues and fret buzz, both of which have been completely cured by Fraser. The guitar now plays as well as any I have owned (many!) and holds its tuning, despite some hefty bending. All this at an exceptional price.
I have a couple of other old guitars and these will certainly be making their way to Fraser's workshop in the not too distant future.
John Plygawko, Leeds
Just a quick email to say thanks for doing such an AMAZING job on my new tele! Now that I've had the chance to play it properly, I can honestly say that you've transformed a pretty good guitar into a true Rock 'n' Roll Machine! Played it through the Bassman yesterday afternoon and it sounded ace.
Action and intonation are spot-on, no rattles or buzzes anywhere. The top E stays firmly on the fretboard, and those new saddles sustain forever!
Many, many thanks.
PS Black plate is behaving so far.... fingers crossed.
Thanks for your excellent service last week in fixing the switch on my Squier Tele whilst I waited, I really appreciated your service.
All is good with the switch and it's great to hear the tones coming from the bridge pick up in that position again.
I'll probably give you a shout in the new year to get the guitar set up correctly.
James Wilson, Halifax
Fraser made my Ibanez 7-string much more fun to play! The man knows his guitars inside and out and discussed fully with me everything I wanted and explained anything I didn't understand. He even sorted out the pickup mounting that a cowboy from a guitar shop had botched up previously.
I was very impressed with his knowledge and honesty - he will tell you if you don't need to pay to have something done. He would be the first person I would call for anything guitar related.
Scott Leyson, Wakefield
Just a quick note to say the strat is superb !! It plays like a different guitar, another quality job !!
Many thanks again, all the best.
Scott Leyson, Wakefield
Firstly I would like to second what Keith has already stated. As you know my Les Paul is my pride and joy and more precious than the wife ( HA HA !! ) .
I have received it back in better condition than when I first purchased it back in 2001. The craftsmanship and professionalism you have displayed is first class.
I would also like to thank you for the extra time and effort you took without additional charge to complete the set up I requested which I know from speaking to Keith was most time consuming and tedious.
Keith Gribbin, Wakefield
Fraser, just a quick email to thank you once again, for the American Fender Strat Guitar set up. It plays just awesome and was set up perfectly to my specification!!
You have offered a quality service, displaying professionalism and technical ability, which I recognise and appreciate.
You have also taken great care of my guitar whilst in your possession and I have no hesitancy in highly recommending you to my friends, colleagues or anyone else requiring your services! Thanks again.
I know Scott will be contacting you in due course, as he too is highly delighted (and relieved!) to have had his guitar serviced to the highest order.
Kamil Lowczynski, Leeds
After 1 or 1 and a half year of neglect (due to having Schecter C7 Hellraiser) I've decided to resurrect my Ibanez rg370dx. I have left it with Fraser to get it hard tailed, get action lowered, level the frets and get it restrung. I always thought that ibanez is inferior to my schecter. Now I have a dilemma which guitar to play. Fraser has done a brilliant job just like with C7.
Highly recommended to anyone especially someone having second thoughts about his guitar.
Dave Darwell, Leeds
Just like to thank you again for the work that you have done to my Epi LP, It now plays better than I ever thought it would.
I'll certainly recommend your services to other guitarists.
Should you require any customer feedback posting, then please let me know where and I will be only too happy to do so.
Based on how the Epi LP now plays I'm looking for another, so you can expect my custom again.
