AxeKool Updates…

September 2023
We will be opening our “Axekool You Tube Channel” shortly with loads of support videos of guitar problem solving and tips and our guitar wiring harnesses being fitted in a step by step guide – plus loads of other fun guitar stuff…

August 2023
We are soon to completely refurbishing the AxeKool workshop. Its all looking tired now and we need to use the space more efficiently. So we have designed our own units and workbenches. The units will be interchangeable and can hold 4 different draw sizes which are also interchangeable. Photos to follow later in the year.

July 2023
Has been a record breaking month for interesting guitar projects in the workshop. This 1974 Gibson Les Paul with electrical issues was top of the list. We got it all sorted and what an amazing instrument it is!
