Its Not Always A Happy Ending
One of my favorite adverts was one by Honda which said at Honda they don't use the word "OK" and instead they use the phrase "What If". I LOVED that advert and found it so inspiring. This is the premise of every guitar setup we undertake. If that means rejecting guitars and starting again - that is exactly what we do.
No Time To Watch the Videos? Here Is the Summary...
If you have bought a guitar before you will know all too well that not every guitar feels or plays the same. You may also know that due to the nature of the major component of the guitar (wood) that they can feel great one moment and awful the next (say for example after traveling half way around the globe on a boat - from some factory in the far east to the UK!)
Richards Guitars offers a unique service offering the more discerning/knowledgeable buyer a host of "players benefits" which will ensure that ANY guitar purchased will give you years of enjoyment - regardless of the price paid. I can demonstrate that a guitar purchased from Richards Guitars will...

Over the past 20 years I have worked hand in hand with suppliers, reporting back with fault "trends" and ways to improve products supplied to us. Companys I have dealt with have been listening intently over the years and we know what value our input has brought to their brands.
To summarise, a guitar supplied by Richards Guitars will not just feel like a new guitar, it will feel like YOUR guitar.
* Due to the need to check your intonation & adjust accordingly you must bring in your guitar with BRAND NEW strings fitted (original guage as setup when sold) OR pay our technician to remove your old strings and fit new ones - guide price £16 including strings. It is impossible to check intonation accurately with old strings.

The Vintage ProShop Unique V100PU1600 Nebula, is a unique instrument, built by the UK ProShop team and showcasing their talents to the full and also features the work of acclaimed British pickup maestro Tim Mills and his fanatical team at Bare Knuckle Pickups.
Guardians of the gorgeous and outrageous finish, the ProShop team have created a bespoke coruscating ‘burst of multiple colours, brilliant, ever shifting, and reflective of the depths of the universe from whence comes we know not what…
With a Mahogany body providing signature resonance, tone, ‘correct weight’ and comfort, Nebula is beautified with a stellar burst of the three fundamental colours, red, green, and blue in metallic gloss to create a galactic panorama, interspersed with dappled stars, all contained within a black hole edging and solid cream binding.
With a matching matt finish headstock and Pickguard, Nebula is one of the most unique pieces the UK ProShop has created.
The Vintage ProShop Nebula features the Vintage evolutionary V100 body shape, with a graceful descending bass side shoulder and an ingeniously-designed offset heel providing improved access to the upper reaches of the fretboard.
Wilkinson T.O.M. enables fine-tuning of each string for superb intonation all over the fretboard.
A set of the truly outstanding Bare Knuckle “The Mule” pickups takes Nebula into warp space in an instant. With classic 'Patent Applied For' vintage tone, and exceptionally balanced frequency response and power enough for super expressive playing. Built and voiced as faithful reproductions of the best sounding late '59 PAFs with a differing number of turns of vintage correct 42 AWG plain enamel wire on each coil, The Mule exhibits outstanding clarity and huge dynamic range. Solid nickel silver baseplate and covers, butyrate bobbins, maple spacers, nickel-plated slugs and Fillister no.5 pole screws, with sand cast Alnico IV magnets all give The Mule faster response in the bass, fuller mids and better control of the highs. Even at low levels of gain, smooth harmonic feedback which is full of overtones is possible, while clean sounds have depth and unmistakable vintage character, resulting in an expressive, clear tone which will drive amps commandingly into overdrive when required.
Nebula would not be complete without her unique Vintage designed, Bare Knuckle phaser engraved, “Burnt Chrome” solid nickel silver pickup covers depicting the anonymous and enigmatic language of the crop circle, the message from Nebula is that she rocks
Twin master Volume and Tone controls with three-way pickup selector switch.
Grover® tulip machine heads provide simple, effective action for maximum tuning stability.
One piece Mahogany with classic Vintage ‘soft C’ profile for instant comfort, speed, accuracy, and great feel.
Rosewood for outstanding tonal transfer, responsiveness, and durability with a traditional 12" radius for superb playability and feel.
24.75" / 628mm.
22 Medium Jumbo profile frets add to comfort, accuracy, and overall positive feel of the Vintage V100M.
