Customer Review

“Owen provided an excellent 1:1 day for my son to learn about guitar set-up and maintenance. He explained and demonstrated each stage clearly for my son to follow. Owen has a lovely relaxed, approachable manner and gave generous tips and support on how to edge into the music industry based on his extensive experience and contacts. Cannot recommend OVGuitars more highly!”
