Just taken my acoustic guitar for Tito to look at as the A and D strings sounded ‘dead’ about the 7th fret. He diagnosed and fixed the problem (bridge slightly raised in saddle) whilst I waited, at no charge. Highly recommend him. Thanks very much!

Hi Tito

Simply wanted to thankyou for setting up my guitar, as newbie into the world of guitar playing I trusted my first guitar to Tito, it's hard for someone in my position to assess the differences that a set up can make, however, I found that following Tito's work on the guitar it definitely felt different in the best possible way and the sound quality had taken huge steps forwards,I knew that trusting my instrument to Tito was one of my better decisions. Tito's passion and skill came across the first time we met, he is a genuinely nice person and offers an excellent service turning around my guitar within days of leaving it with him and offering excellent value for his time and knowledge, based on my personal experience I can heartily recommend his technical services, many thanks and hope to have the opportunity to use your services in the future as I progress with my newly found passion.

Kind Regards


Hi Tito,
Just wanted to reach out personally and thank you for the service provided a couple of weeks ago. I've never played an acoustic with such perfect action before!
This was my first expensive instrument, and the first time I'd ever bothered to get a professional setup done.
I've been struggling to put it down, since.
Thanks again, I will definitely be reaching out to you next time I buy a guitar, and will reccommend you to my circle of guitar enthusiasts.

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.

I just wanted to say how Tito transformed my guitar.  Though I’m an eternal beginner even I could tell the ‘out of the box’ sound was dull and muted. Suffice it to say after Tito’s set up treatment,  this instrument sings.

David Curtis


thankyou for your work 100% happy . you have transformed the bass and both fenders feel superb .

tito the magician have a great christmas love and peace phil

Pick Happy

Thank you so much for bringing my acoustic to life. I thought it was too far gone and a poor purchase on my part, but Wow you have transformed it into the guitar reviews claimed it to be and more. I feel like I've got a new high end guitar. My fingers are literally singing, I've never played so well

Mark Berwick

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 

Aaron Hill-Southern

'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.' 

Harold Bradley 

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 

Tony Emmerton

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!

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++++ 

John Hardy

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!

Simon Goulding

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. 


Nigel Bethwaite

  Cracked neck on my Gibson Flying V. Superb repair you can not tell. Perfect paint match, and still plays the same 👍👍👍

Mark Thompson

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

Barry McLaughlin

Just a line to thank you for the great job youve done on my guitar. Its a pleasure to play now, with a far more friendly action, particularly on the higher frets, and youve even managed to remove the sleeve-stain from the body!

Bill Coulshed 

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!

David Dawson

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

Jake Heaton

This guy is so good, does everything I need with no problems!


John Prescott

Having bought a new Tokai Breezysoun d Tele copy recently- I had wondered why it felt so bad to play; so I took it to Tito. The frets were all over the place apparently with highs & lows everywhere , in fact he said it was unplayable . After being in his expert hands he has sorted it out good and proper and the guitar plays a dream and is now a pleasure to play. I would recommend Dalmedo Guitars to any musician who wants his guitar "sorted out " Very reasonable prices too. He will even build you one if you want too. Many thanks. Til next time then ...

Liam Blake

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!

Jeff Ascough

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!!

Andy Dawson

Totally transformed my Squire Strat. Thank you

Ahmed AbdelMaksoud

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.

Joe Briscoe

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 !


Brilliant Repair

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

Alex wilkins

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.

Highly recommended.

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!

Steve Clarke

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.
Great job
Many thanks


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.

Guitar Setups

  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!

I'm looking forward to you sorting the Breedlove out now and I'll probably drop the RG2550 off with you when I pick that one up funds allowing.
Many thanks

Hi Tito
Just a note to thank you again for your work on my guitars: the Strat has never played better, and looks new, and I've no idea how you fixed up the acoustic. Amazing!
Be in touch soon.

  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 .

Steve Turner 

   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.

Steve Hesketh

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.

Simon Guest

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.

Phillip Lord

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!! 

Damian Phillips

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.

Hofner Archtop

A truly awesome job, thanks it plays like a dream

Justin Divine

Superb setup

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
thanks again 


Hi Tito

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

Best regards

Si swarbrick

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! 


Hi Tito
 The Les Paul is out of this world - the other band members could not believe the sound I was getting when put through my valve amp. Truely amazing.
 Now a thought - can you do the same on single coils. The same power and clarity ?
 Let me know
Cheers John :-))


Hi Tito,
  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 

(excuse the terrible pun!). I have used it at venues up and down the countries
and even had my drummer use it instead of his bass drum for his kit at
a recent outdoor festivals. The feedback/response for general pubic
has been amazing with it and Im so pleased to be using it.
 Kind Regards,
Cole Stacey

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! 

CheersKev 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.

Marcus Remnant 

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  

Donna Marie

 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 :)

Mark Humphreys 

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!

Quintessential Records  

Hi Tito
The stomp box is great..took a while to get used to but now I wouldnt be without it now

Martyn Joseph

 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.
Frank Turner

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:)
