Professional Guitar Services and Custom Builds
Glenn has a fantastic attitude towards his work and is a meticulous and knowledgeable craftsman. He treats all instruments with care, as if they were his own and goes to great lengths to ensure the job is always done properly, to the highest standards.
He has worked on several of my guitars over the years including a Strat which required a custom re-wire and more recently, my Les Paul Black Beauty which was in need of full set-up. The Gibson was returned very quickly and now looks, feels and sounds like a brand new instrument. The highly detailed technical report and thorough guitar history he supplied has also added to its re-sale value, which is a massive bonus.
I would definitely recommend Newtech Guitar Services to any musician.

Glenn’s looked after all my gear for about 5 years, i wouldn’t trust anyone else to keep my gear going. From setups to building custom equipment Glenn’s the man. 100% recommended!
STEPHEN HIGGINSON – Solsbury Hill / Double Trouble
Glenn has worked on a few of mine and my son James’s basses, he always does a first rate job and at a reasonable price too, and if you know how fussy James and me are this is no mean feat ! Thoroughly recommend Newtech Guitar Services, you get what you pay for and more.
Glenn knows how guitars work. He just loves his subject, is always happy to share his encyclopedic knowledge of guitar types, how they were made, how to improve them, how to maintain them. I had absolutely no idea about setting pickups up at the correct heights (I’d never even HEARD of that!), or how to get the frets and board working nicely. I had trems that refused to balance and guitars I loved but were near the brink of death. What’s going on with this crazy 70s finish?? None of it was a problem for someone with Glenn’s levels of skill, a simple setup or a full rebuild get the same meticulous approach to quality of work and the difference it makes to the way the thing looks and plays was the biggest surprise I’ve had in 30 years…

After having Glenn work on several of my guitars, I simply wouldnt trust
anyone else to set up, repair, or mod my gear. Honest, good value, professional
and quick. Glenn is your man!

Glenn has done some work on my Bass collection Bass.. Mainly the electrics, but also set it back up for me.
He is also restoring a 1962 Burns Bison Bass guitar which is very precious to me as it belonged to my late father. Over the years. Dad applied many different coats of Dulux to it so it was looking very sorry for itself.
There is only one man I would trust to undertake this restoration and that is Glenn Newton.
