Guitar techs in Wales (UK) ????

does anyone know of any decent guitar techs in Wales or bods that could make me a custom neck. I really don't like the idea of handing over my baby to some flat fingered oaf without any recommendations etc. cheers guys

If you're anywhere near Cardiff it might be worth asking in Gamlins or Cranes?
A bloke in Gamlins once recommended somewhere to get a saddle replaced on my old Aria Pro.

cheers. I mentioned GM music to a mate of mine and he laughed in my face. I thought cranes looked a pretty safe bet though

Not Cranes. They mis-sold an RG450 as an RG550, to the guy I bought it off. Not Speed Music (at least until they get rid of one of their techs) in Newport. If you're willing to go over the Severn, Sound Control in Bristol seems a good bet.

But where is Hitchen? I've never heard of the place.
