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!

Avon and Somerset Constabulary

We’ve recovered a violin after searching a vehicle in Cheddar this week. A male and female were arrested for theft of other items.

It’s fairly distinctive and seems to have been well-loved by somebody. We’d like to get it back to them. Can you help? 👮🎻

Do you recognise this instrument ?

Recognise it? Call us on 101 and give the reference 5217156731.
