Wink UK Guitar Tech, North West

Hi
Not sure how many UK people come on here but,

I've just bought a 91 777DY and although cosmetically it's stunning it certainly needs a service and set up. I'm looking for a clever guitar tech in the north west. I also need some advise on cleaning the neck.

I've not had a maple neck before so I'm caucious about what's best to use, also it's very grubby on the back of the neck and I was wondering is it possible to clean this up to some degree.

Any advise appreciated, it's my first Jem and the one I always wanted, so it's precious to say the least!!!

Best
Progs

Depends how North you are but when I think of Northwest I think Manchester area.

Sounds Great near the airport in Heald Green can plek the guitar for you and give it a proper set up.

Max Cottam at Cottam Guitars has a reputation for fantastic setups too but I don't know how active he is these days or whether he concentrates on his ebay business.

Concerning the dirty neck--there are a few great sticky threads in the tech section for maple fretboard cleaning.
