1. What is this Guitar Service you speak of?
A brand new guitar service centre, providing the care and expertise required for your instrument's maintenance and repair. We have also opened a brand new guitar string and accessory section in our shop.
2. Why should I get my guitar serviced?
If you strip a guitar back to its bare bones, you'll be left with nothing more than a piece of wood. A piece of wood that everything else is built up from. Bearing in mind that wood is a living organic material - fittings on your guitar will move and wear down over time due to sweat, grease and other varying factors. However general maintenance will keep it in good condition and avoid any cutting out or additional unwanted noises during your playing. Generally, you should get your guitar serviced at least once or twice a year to ensure its upkeep.
3. Why at Bell?
Here at Bell, we provide numerous services to help fellow musicians become the artists they long to be. Maintenance of your instrument is a very important factor in this.

5. What is the process if I wish to enquire?

6. What would be your number one top tip for maintaining a guitar?
Keep it clean and at a good temperature.
For example, a fretboard made of rose or general dark wood does not use lacquer but oil. If the board is not cleaned and oiled it becomes dry and can start to crack. Equally, keep your guitar in a moderate temperature, not too warm and not too cold. Keep away from radiators and do not leave it in a cold car overnight... trust us.
