Guitar Upgrades Cheltenham


axeKool guitars offer guitar upgrades on all types of guitar models, from Electric solid body, Electric Hollow body, Acoustic, Classic and Bass. We can recommend and advise on various specifications and provide new and vintage parts as required. We have worked on many guitar models including, almost new to custom builds and vintage guitars from the golden age of the early 50’s. The difference upgrading to a top quality wiring harness or upgrading pickups can make to a guitar, can be heard immediately.

There are of course many options depending on what you are trying to achieve or the music that you want to play. i.e. If you were wanting to play early sixties music like the Rolling Stones, then having some hot pickups would be a good idea to reach those high tones.
