Personalised multi-point setup included

Before dispatch, your instrument will be treated to a full setup. That's not a quick tweak, but a full multi-point setup by an experienced guitar technician who will check and adjust every single thing on your guitar, bass, ukulele or banjo to ensure it is performing at its absolute best.

This is not a quick process but we believe every instrument should go through our process to acheive an exacting standard of playability.


We start with the frets on your instrument. All guitar necks move and change over time so we will make sure that your frets are nice and flat as we go up the neck. We don't want any high or low spots as this will mean your guitar will need a higher than optimum action and potentially suffer with fret buzz.

We check and properly profile the playing surface of the frets and then make sure the fret ends are finished off properly. The fret is then polished to ensure smooth string bending.

Truss Rod

Then it's on to the truss rod. This metal rod differs from guitar to guitar (some guitars such as classical guitars don't usually have a truss rod!) and basically controls the "relief" or curve of the neck. Not enough relief and your strings won't have enough clearance over the other frets when playing. Too much relief and you'll have a high action which gets worse as you go up the neck.

The heavier the strings then the more the truss rod needs to work. Proper adjustment in the workshop means that the action will be just right for the strings fitted to your guitar.

Top Nut

The top nut is super important and is one of the two open contact points of your guitar. The technician will check and cut each slot to make sure the strings both run freely but are not sitting in a slot that's too big.

The top nut also plays a big part in the action of your guitar so we'll hit that sweet spot between too low and too high.


Another really important part of your guitar!

On an acoustic, the saddle is cut to the correct height making sure the bottom is 100% flat and straight. This means the string can transfer its vibration properly into the body of your guitar.

For electric guitars, the saddles are adjusted to ensure your intonation is perfect. We will also match the saddles to the radius of your fretboard.

Bridge / Tremolo

The bridge affects the break angle and string height of your guitar and is also responsible for holding your saddles.

For a guitar with a Floyd Rose tremolo system or similar, the spring tension has to be just right to allow the tremolo to return to its "zero point" and keep everything in tune.

For guitars with standard tremolos, we can set it to float and be used both up or down like a true tremolo or we can lock the trem block back so the tremolo will only go downwards.... the choice is yours!


Intonation is the measure of how in-tune the guitar string is across the length of the fretboard and a guitar with badly set intonation will get more and more out of tune as the string is shortened when you play.

Tiny adjustments are made to each string where applicable to adjust its length and ensure that the intonation is set just right.

Overall Action

Once all the above has been completed, the guitar is checked for playability and fine adjustments are made. This step brings everything together and means your guitar will be set up optimally.

Machine Heads

Every machine head is operated and checked for function. We need to ensure that the machine heads operate smoothly.


All the functions of your guitar are checked to ensure everything is working as intended.

For acoustic guitars we will check the functions of the EQ system and controls as weel as check the internal cabling and jack socket.

For electric guitars, all the pickups are checked for function and tonal response. All controls and switches are operated to ensure they are functioning properly. The jack socket is checked.

Other Parts

All other parts such as strap pins, bushings, tuning buttons etc are fully checked.


All our instruments get the same premium treatment wether you purchase online or instore.

If you have purchased online, your guitar will be carefully packed ready for dispatch. You will receive a tracking link via email.

Happy playing :)

The Ibanez AS93FM Semi Acoustic Guitar is a guitar designed for semi-hollow lovers that will rival the big boys head on. The Ibanez AS93FM represents outstanding quality for your money with a great spec and classy features that you can't ignore.

For the AS93FM, Ibanez have selected Maple as the tonewood of choice for the double cutaway body, with a centre block running down the middle to reduce unwanted feedback and increase sustain. The set neck has also been married to the body resulting in a 24.7" scale instrument with a beautiful look and feel. 

This model gets the comfortable AS Expressionist neck profile treatment as well as an Ebony fingerboard which has been bound and decorated with stylish block inlays alongside medium sized frets. This 21st century take on a vintage instrument's playing surface brings a new edge to the design and with it provides easy string bends that won't choke out during those intricate blues licks or fat rock solos! 

Mounted using a sustain block for less unwanted feedback are a set of Super 58 custom humbucking pickups. This dynamic, responsive duo are designed to offer up a powerful yet versatile sonic arsenal to draw all manner of tones from. 

Rounding off this impressive spec list Ibanez have selected gold hardware as standard with this model for a polished, alternative touch. Boasting a hardware package that would rival guitars with a much larger pricetag, AS93FM owners can rely on an Gibraltar Performer bridge, a QUIK change III tailpiece, sure grip III control knobs and Ibanez's own robust tuners in any playing scenario.

Hello Your website states that the neck is made of mahogany yet the Ibanez website claims it is made of maple. Which is it? Is your stock a different batch than advertised on the Ibanez website? I look forward to hearing from you. Kind regards Steve

Steven Blakeborough

The mahogany neck mention looks like an old specification. The neck is made from Nyatoh and Maple. Nyatoh is an Indonesian hard wood.
