A bit about me…
I restring, setup, modify, sell and ‘fix’ guitars and I’d love to do any and all of these for you. I’ve been doing this for 8 years now and like to think I’ve gotten ‘no bad’ at it. A quick look at my reviews happily confirms that others share my view 🙂
I can keep getting better and am currently studying Instrument Making and Repair at Glasgow Clyde College to help me to do so.
I want to make playing guitar/bass/MUSIC as easy, stress free and fun as possible so if there is anything about your instrument(s) that is giving you a spot of bother please don’t hesitate to Get In Touch
Thanks for reading!

You can be sure any and all things that we sell are an absolute steal at the asking price and will look/play/sound/feel as good as it can be 🙂
Here are some kind words from kind people that I’ve been able to help out.
Chuffed to bits with Cal Bowes Guitars. Contacted Cal yesterday on the off-chance he could restring my son’s guitar while we are in Livi. He collected at lunchtime today and dropped the restrung and serviced guitar off with us tonight. Also fixed the pickup, at a great price. Wouldn’t hesitate to recommend.

Cal is extremely knowledgeable and skilled. He came to my house to pick up 2 guitars. One acoustic with ridiculous high action that needed a lot of work to become playable and one electric with Floyd Rose that needed a good clean/polish and a restring. Cal went above and beyond and did some extra cosmetic fixes plus included a change of battery but never expected me to be charged over the initial quote. A few days later and after some great communication/updates Cal dropped off 2 instruments which felt way more expensive than what they initially were. I found it difficult to leave them aside. The acoustic guitar feels almost like an electric with a super low action. I can't but recommend Cal's work enough. If like me you have procrastinated or hesitated to contact him for one reason or another, just don't! I regret not having used his services before. Thanks for your awesome work on my guitars.

I’ve used Cals services a few times and have never, ever been disappointed! He is a really genuine guy with a wealth of knowledge and I trust him to do a fantastic job every single time. I dropped off my newest guitar and within 48 hours he had it playing and sounding like a dream, thank you man!

Had my guitar serviced by Cal and she came back looking like a brand new toy. It was cleaned, new strings placed on and the strings were realigned to sound so much better and allow me to play it without having to death grip the fret board. Cal is also a very knowledgeable and lovely guy, will collect and drop off your guitar and the price is more than reasonable. Definitely recommend his work to anyone wanting to refresh their guitar!

Couldn't recommend Cal's services enough. He took my Ibanez in at short notice for a fret level, crown and full set up. I couldn't be happier with the work, the guitar plays like a dream now and I couldn't put it down for days after receiving my guitar back. 5 star work and service i highly recommend Cal if you need work on your guitar.
