Customer Testimonials:

Hi Andy
Just wanted to thanks for a great setup and fret Stone on my Strat. Now plays as it should!
Well done and best regards.
Stephen Mills (West Midlands) 

“Dilemma: you have a 50 year old guitar that you’ve personally owned for 45 years.  It’s a family heirloom that needs some tlc. Truss rod, fret dressing, intonation and dodgy knobs. Who do you trust to love and resurrect your ‘pride n joy’?   Andy De Looze  That’s who! Not only does he sell real high end guitars, but he treats them all like his baby’s. And he treated my guitar exactly the same. I have a guitar re-born!! Cheers mate. You’re a legend. Great doing business with you. I’ll definitely be back 👍🎸”

Rob Lloyd (West Midlands)


“Just like to thank Andy De Looze @ Really Great Guitars for doing a great professional job sorting out my Taylor Acoustic out!
A complete fret dress and set up. Guitar plays as good as when I first bought it! Also thanks for the set up of my CS Telecaster he gave the bridge the correct radius sorting out the intonation and choking up the top end of the neck when bending above a full-tone bend!

“If you want a Reliable, fast, honest, professional service – Anything guitar related, Andy’s your man. He has all spares and parts imaginable too and above all he is a top man
And thanks to his lovely wife for entertaining my daughter ! 10/10”

Craig Swift (Redditch)


“Having tried a few guitar specialists in the area, Andy was the one who provided me with the most confidence that he had the right knowledge and experience. The work was performed quickly and professionally, and I was provided with regular updates regarding progress. It was great to use the services of somebody that genuinely loves their work, and is passionate about guitars and music.”

Mick Milner (Droitwich)


“Andy, thank you so much for the work you completed on my guitar at the weekend! What a difference!
You’ve turned a good guitar into a great one! Thank you so much!”

Andy Dent (Worcester)


“I left Andy a beaten up, filthy dirty old Taylor. When I picked it up a few days later it was barely recognisable. It now plays better than at any point in its 15 years. So I left him with a pretty much unplayable Strat, which, amongst other things, was choking all over the neck. It now plays and sounds just like Leo intended.”

Mark Wasley (Redditch)
