Hooson Guitars

Just a little note of thanks to Leigh over at Hooson Guitars. The work carried out on my D18V was nothing short of superb!

Lots of work done on the bridge, a new bone nut, frets replaced (although looking at it you would never know) and a perfect set up.

Martin D18V after having the bridge re-profiled and vintage long bone saddle created, “in the right place”.

Many thanks Leigh, It’s so good to have your guitar set up by someone who knows the genre of music and understands what is expected of the given instrument…………Perfect!

Some work in progress pic’s of Chris Elson’s lovely old D28.

Light bracing scalloping involving scalloped bass x, tapered treble x for asymmetry and a fat 50,S Martin flavour to the trebles.

  1. Great work Leigh, some well needed tlc for my old Martin has brought new life to it. Still has that bluegrass thunder bass, but now has an even sound across the mids and highs that just wasn’t there before. Playability, intonation and general set up much improved. Thank you!
