The Recaster


I've been buying, selling, fixing and customising guitars since 2012. From a vintage shop (So Last Century) in Afflecks, in Manchester's Northern Quarter came Recaster Guitar Service. I decided to focus on selling guitars online and offer a repair and modification service at my workshop on the outskirts of Manchester (ATELIER SK14). I have been selling online since the turn of the century so this was an obvious step.

When it comes to guitars I'm self taught. I got my first electric guitar in 1982. It was awful and really hindered my playing. I learnt to do set-ups and repairs out of a desire to offer an exceptional product at a fair price. I now sell a range of quality used guitars that I can be proud of, 'attic find' project guitars and a range of new and used parts as well as the occasional parts-caster.

An expanding range of parts hand relict in my workshop. I offer 'off-the-shelf' parts and a relicing service for anything from a strap button to a complete guitar overhaul. I work on metal, plastic and wood with projects ranging from historic and mild to impossibly rusty. Because everything is done by hand, every Recaster product is a total one-off.
