You can check out all our recommendations and reviews on our Facebook Page and Google, but here are just some of the good things our customers have to say about Malone Guitars
It's very hard to find good luthiers especially in the Essex area and Malone Guitars are just that. When you get a good one it's like finding a nugget of gold.
Would recommend to anyone.
One guitar (Strat) I had in pieces which Ian completely rebuilt with a fantastic sunburst and light relic effect - looks plays and sounds fantastic.
Another was a battered vintage Kay acoustic, looking like it had been knocked around for 30 years! Ian repaired and refinished it sympathetically in keeping with the wear and tear. I now have a very tidy guitar that has kept it's great tone, and which will no longer live in the cupboard!
Huge thanks to Ian for his help.
I took my acoustic guitar there to have a pickup fitted under the body.
The service was first class and the turnaround was super fast as I needed it for a gig the next day
I would highly recommend
Top quality guitars, reliable repairs and service work, great turn around times and also been a real help with one of my latest projects. Can't recommend Malone guitars enough!
Over the years, Ian has custom built three guitars for me, a telecaster that is my default for gigs and a couple of "cigar boxes". He also serviced and set up my treasured 60 years old Hofner Congress.
In my experience, not only are his guitars both lovely to play and to look at (I've been lucky enough to try out some of his new telecaster types and very impressed), but Ian takes care to understand how you actually play (which may involve more than one style, as it did with me) and takes this into account in his work.
I wholeheartedly recommended Ian's work.
Ian has done a fantastic job of bringing my guitar to life, with a new nut, jumbo frets, resolving electrical issues, and a full set up, it now plays like a dream thanks to his very high standard of work carried out, at a reasonable price. many thanks.
Would really recommend Malone Guitars, did a fantastic job repairing my old guitar and for a very reasonable price, thank you Ian.
