Absolutely delighted with the "De-Luxe Set - Up" on my beloved Fender US standard Telecaster.
It plays and sounds even better now than on the day I instantly fell in love with it when brand new 34 years ago.
Tito didn't even charge extra for his painstaking work restoring the frets and neck to just like new.
Kenny Jones - guitarist for 60 years.
Thanks very much for sorting out my well worn Telecaster! The fret re polishing job you've done is unbelievable. Also, with the new bridge fitted and pick up heights adjusted it plays and sounds better than its ever done! I'll be back soon with my acoustic
Just to say mega thanks for deluxe set up on Stratocaster and repairs to Framus Black Rose guitar. Unbelievable workmanship on electrics and guitar itself. Highly recommended. Thanks a lot. H
Pickup selector switch packed up on my Gretsch Electromatic guitar. Found Dalmedo (local) on the Internet left message.
Tito contacted me back so I left the guitar with him for repair.
Within 24 hours Tito emailed me to say the repair had been done
I collected my guitar and the selector switch worked great.
Best of all, Tito only charged me £20 for the repair!
*** HIGHLY RECOMMENDED ***
Paul Field Gibson Les Paul Deluxe Set Up Review
Wow - this is the first time I have used Tito and am absolutely blown away with the way my Les Paul plays after the set up! I couldn't bring myself to put it down - worth every penny - Fantastic work A++++
'I thought the guitar was finished after snapping the neck but just over a week after putting it in with Tito it was like a new guitar. You can't tell it's had a neck repair and the stability of the tuning is still bang on! It plays and sounds brilliant.'
Many thanks for your work on my instrument - brilliant setup, and the guitar is sounding and feeling better than ever. Will definitely be in touch again!
Another Set Up. Another outstanding job.
Tito does all my set ups and repairs. I recently took my Fender P Bass to him for a set up. Always a brilliant job. If you're unsure of this guys genius then I'd be more than happy to let you see and hear the SG Signature 6 string bass. Handcrafted by Tito. ALWAYS great work.
Epiphone Sheraton set up
Wow...This 28 year old guitar has been transformed.Having had a deluxe set up it now feels and plays like new. Thank you Tito for an amazing job. Yours gratefully Mark Thompson
Just a line to thank you for the great job you’ve done on my guitar. It’s a pleasure to play now, with a far more ‘friendly’ action, particularly on the higher frets, and you’ve even managed to remove the sleeve-stain from the body!
Custom Shop Strat
My trusty Strat had worn frets so I asked Tito to sort them out. No fuss at all: I had the guitar back the next day with perfectly levelled, crowned and polished frets, with a perfect full set up too.
The guitar's now back to its best and I can't recommend Tito's service highly enough. Thank you!
Gibson Les Paul Studio
I bought a 1995 Les Paul Studio which had a nice tone but didn't feel quite right. Tito set it up for me and i have to say its awesome, superb action and tone,whether i play it clean or cranked it rocks.
Thanks Tito, I need to get the PRS and the Gretsch to you for the same treatment. Many thanks
This guy is so good, does everything I need with no problems!
So far this week I've played two gigs with a Dalmedo custom transducer pickup system fitted to my trusty acoustic and I'm blown away! The sound is microphonic, warm, punchy and articulate and every bit as great as well known brands I've played (if not better actually). If you're a gigging acoustic musician, looking for a great live sound but not so keen on dropping mega money on a label, check out Tito's work!
Put my 1996 Strat in for some TLC with Tito after having mixed results from a high end guitar shop near to us. Fret dress, set up, neck refinishing, tone modification. It's like having a new guitar - but a much better one. It plays beautifully. Highly recommended!!
Totally transformed my Squire Strat. Thank you
This guy is a real find. You wouldn't believe how your guitar can change from a generic online bought one, to a custom made expensive guitar under his expert hand!
David Anthony Clayton
Great experience from first contact to repair completion. Fantastic resolution to an ongoing problem that nobody else was able to rectify. Would highly recommend.
Exceptional service. My guitars have never played better. I don't care if you have an Epiphone SG or a private stock PRS, Tito will improve upon it immeasurably. The only problem is that if you have a collection you will eventually have to get them all set up by Tito because once you get one done the rest will play like crap by comparison!
Fret Buzz & Pre Amp Repair & Action Sorted
No more fret buzz wiring setup pre amp working again
Makes it pleasure to play & learn on again
thanks tito great service
Fantastic job on my beloved old Yamaha, plays like a dream now and sounds just so much better.
Wish I\'d let Tito sort it sooner, thought my guitar was past it but how wrong was I, action is best it\'s ever been
Thoroughly recommended !
I took my black peavey to tito and he fixed every last error on it. I plan on taking my custom build double neck down to him very very soon for a repair
I trusted Tito with my brand new - ibanez js 1200 - as i was having problems with my personal set up after changing the string gauge up to 10\'s. It now plays like a dream with nice low action & no fret buzz.
Website : Attack With Style
Tito did a fantastic job setting up my guitars, an Epiphone Les Paul and a Fender Strat, about 6 months ago. Have just been back for a minor adjustment on the Strat which he sorted for me there and then and at no extra cost. Cheers!
Hi Tito, hope you are ok. Just a quick line to say thanks for a great job on the warwick. Looks ace with the black hardware and feels loads better now you've set it up.
Fitting LR Baggs Pick up
I first came across Tito about 15 months ago when he lowered the action on a brand new Fender 12 string acoustic I had purchased, and now it plays like a dream. He repaired the jack socket on my Fender Strat and gave my son\'s Fender bass a cracking service. Recently, he installed an LR Baggs pick up into my Yamaha acoustic, but the pick up turned out to be faulty. He liaised with LR Baggs to try and resolve the problem, but LR Baggs suggested I return the pick up and get a replacement. At no extra charge, Tito put in the replacement pick up, and everything is now working like clockwork. Tito is a true professional and I would recommend him to anyone for guitar repairs.
Tito can simply work wonders with anything that has strings on it!!
He has done quite a few set ups and adjustments for me and does a diamond job every time.
Very very highly recommended!
I passed this man a pigs ear of a guitar and he gave me back a silk purse. What he did in 48 hours is the work of a genius. Brilliant.Steve Helm
I had to drop you a quick line to thank you for doing such a superb job setting the Jem up. My son is absolutely thrilled with it. I had a go with it myself this afternoon and what a transformation!
Give tito my strat deluxe to set up , and what a great job it feels lovely and silky to play now .he also did some great wiring mods on the pickup selecton i can now have all my pickups on or just the bridge and neck pickups , aswell as the usual strat config .
Cheers tito great job hope to have you make me a guitar one day when ive got a few more pennys .
I've been playing the guitar for 48 years and soon realised that guitars needed to be set up properly by someone who knows what they are doing. I have used various luthiers over the years but after trying Dalmedo guitars it has become obvious that they are miles in front of any other luthiers. Tito looks after all of my guitars and frankly I would be terrified of leaving one of my proud possessions with any body else. He is simply the best.
Maton acoustic setup
Great service from Tito. My Maton acoustic was getting a bit tired after 10 years use. After a full setup from Tito it now plays like new. Thanks. I\'ll be back.
Guitar repair to my PRS SE Custom
Absolutely fantastic job. The headstock was broken clean off & now looks as good as new. Would recommend Tito without any hesitation.
Guitar Repairs & Set Up
I can highly recommend Tito for his services and guitar repair. After having problems with the wiring on one of my new Chinese Les Paul guitars, to another i bought recently, which i took to Tito for a full rewire & set up. I am blown away just how good the guitar plays and sounds after Tito taking a look. I would highly recommend taking it to a professional like Tito with over 20 years experience, rather than your local music store. Cheers Tito!!
Simon Goulding Custom Build
It's an absolute pleasure watching my signature model 6 string bass being built by you. The BEST possible materials being crafted by THE BEST luthier around. Always great service. Your knowledge & know-how is endless. VERY VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
A truly awesome job, thanks it plays like a dream
I have use Dalmedo Guitars many times over the years, and my guitars are always setup perfectly ,they come back with low action shiny frets and play brilliantly, I highly reccomend his services
You recently did the work on my lefty fender strat. Thankyou so much mate. I can't even begin to tell you how much of a good job you've done. It sounds amazing!! Thanx again Tito
What a great job
You have fixed my les paul amazingly and at a fantastic price if there is one person to go for guitar repairs go to him!
I've now had several of my guitars set up by Tito and I am very happy with the results! Recommendable!
I hope you are really well, I just wanted to write and say that I am
just about to release my second record after a full UK tour this year
and my Dalmedo stompbox has been with me every step of the way
Hi Tito, thanks for the great repair to my custom shop Les Paul. When the headstock broke I thought that was the end of a great guitar . 10 days after the break here i am gigging again with it and it sounds and plays exactly the same. Fantastic!
Cheers Kev Hopkinson (Styckleback)
Had a repair to les paul toggle switch fitted me in at very short notice excellent job done. Repaired a bass guitar a few years ago made an unplayable jackson sound good
mark jones professional garden maintenance
I had a guitar which had been repaired with a very bad set-up and as such I'd gotten used to playing with a very high action and had reserved that guitar for certain styles, I bought a new nut for the guitar and this highlighted the original problem to the extent that it was unplayable. I took the guitar to Tito and he commented that he didn't know how I'd managed to use it for so long. Rest assured I got the guitar back with an excellent set-up and I'm now using it for whatever I want to, rather than being restricted by a bad set-up. Great value for money and a truly professional service.
Si Plays Guitar
I purchased the 'Deluxe Guitar Setup' and received prompt, and friendly service that was excellent value for money. The job done was fantastic; my guitar plays better than ever. I had some queries about the set-up which were answered quickly and were very helpful.
Headed into the studio next Wednesday and will be using your wonderful stomp box on the new album
I shall keep ya posted
THANKS Tito x
I took my trusty 10 year old SG to Tito for a complete overhaul. When I got it back it played and sounded better than it ever had. I would have no hesitation recommending his services to anyone and will certainly be using him for an annual service from now on :)
I had new super high gauge/tension strings on my bass and needed it setting up: truss rod was adjusted, intonation was set, nut aligned, bridge corrected and the action was lowered. Sounds sweet!
The stomp box is great..took a while to get used to but now I wouldnt be without it now
I had 3 electric guitars set up professionally by Dalmedo Custom Guitars to a very high standard. The price was below all other guitar techs I used in the past and the level of service was superb. I am going to come back to Dalmedo again for minor repairs and set-ups and hopefully for a custom build guitar in the near future. If you want quality - don't go anywhere else
hey man, yeah, the Stomp box is great thanks, been using it at solo shows a-plenty, including the levellers tour in december. good stuff, thanks again.
Tito, just fitted a pair of your D.C JB-V pickups to my Jackson and it sounds superb, they really are as good as you said, I'll have to get them on all my other guitars now:)
