Axion Custom Works
BL8 3DH UK
I have been tinkering with guitars for almost as long as I have been playing them, and started making my first instrument around 1991.
Around 2005 I decided to get some proper training from someone who really knows how to make instruments - John Marlow.
Meanwhile I had become disenchanted with the corporate world, and the scientific and engineering work I had done for almost 25 years was being reduced to a tick-box mentality. That's not me, I need stuff to think about and problems to solve.
So in 2010 I decided to go full time as a guitar repairer. The business developed, and now I not only repair guitars and other fretted instruments, I also make a wide variety of custom guitar parts. For 10 years I was the resident guitar and fretted instrument repairer at one of Manchester's biggest music shops.
I demand of myself only the highest quality work. I stick with the job until it is right, even if I have quoted a fixed fee for the work.
