We've been trading since November 2007 and have many satisfied customers. A number of customers have been in touch to tell us what they think.  Here's a selection:

I ordered some parts from Tonetech to make a cigar box guitar. When I realised I had ordered the wrong product from Tonetech, I rang them to organise an exchange. They were very helpful, organised a replacement, and then phoned me back to tell me of a more suitable product for my needs. This made the refund they offered substantially more, making it all the more impressive that they went out of their way to give me the deal that was most suitable for me. The exchange was fast and efficient, the best experience I have ever had from an online luthier service. I highly recommend Bill and his team to any and all who want an honest and hard-working service and great prices too.

I can confirm I received the guitar toggle knobs this morning,  lightening fast delivery!  I know they are only a low value item,  & you kindly sent them to me for free...But it was a very rare kind gesture of service that you very rarely get anywhere these days,  &  I am overwhelmingly impressed that you took the time to send these out free of charge specially for me,  & I genuinely thank you for this kind & ‘’thoughtful’’ gesture..

You can be re-assured your excellence of 1st class customer service in putting the customer 1st  will be a positive talking point  in my circles for some time to come..at all the future events I take part in..that’s for sure.

Well done Tone tech Luthier supplies!

Many thanks,

Kind regards,

Just got some Hosco Nut Shaping files from Tonetech. They are excellent. Easy to use and the perfect shape for the job. At first thought they seem expensive, but when using them you can tell the quality. I have a few Hosco tools and must say the quality and ease of use justify the price. Some months ago I needed a decent set of nut files so I spoke to the rep. of a very well known supplier of Luthiers tools and parts. He tried to sell me the Hosco 10 piece nut files for £148. When I discovered Tonetech I found the same set of files for £107. Some one is making some money somewhere. I have made a good few nuts with them and they are superb. I now own these Hosco tools:- 10 piece Nut File set. Set of 3 Bass Nut Files. Fret Puller. Fret End Nippers. Set of 3 Fret Crowning files. Double Fret Slot Cleaning Saw. Fret Tange Nipper. Saddle Slot File. Fret Radius Gauge and from Tonetech themselves I have a Hight Fret Finder and a Notched Straight Edge (could not live without these). Sounds expensive but cheap tools do not last, make the job harder and end up more expensive in the long term. Check out Hosco tools at Tontech they are not expensive in the long run.

Just a quick note to let you know that I got the tool today - thank you for an excellent service.
The tool is excellent quality and I can't believe I've come across a single tool with all the right sizes in one place. A 1/20" hex is hard to find on its own, let alone in a multi-tool, so I'm very happy. If you speak to a Chess representative, you might let them know that their product would be "extra awesome" if it came with a carry pouch!
Thanks again and all the best,

I received my order this morning and the indian rosewood fingerboard is amazing !, I have never seen such colour and figure before. I can't wait to see it on a finished guitar. Thank you.

 Hi Bill, We just finished building a FENDER TELECASTER ( All geniune Fender parts except for pickups which are JASON LOLLAR Vintage ). It has been re vamped to 52 specs using all your TINTS ect, and it will wipe the floor with what comes out of FENDER'S CUSTOM SHOP for £2700.00. 

Best Wishes - Rob.  Fender Telecaster Photos


just a quick message to say thanks for getting this order to me so quickly.
it arrived yesterday, and i noticed when i opened the package that there was a note apologising for the delay, and that the thinners had been upgraded and some filters and such had been added to mitigate for the delay due to the bank holiday and a slight delay with your supplier. so my particular thanks to Dan for that. it was unnecessary, but very much appreciated, as i didn't think it would arrive for a little while especially given your site suggests a five to seven day lead on these paints. once im through with these i'll certainly be placing more orders with you in future. So thank you for a service that has been better than expected, and i was already pleased to see that you not only stock these paints, but are perhaps cheaper than anywhere else..
all the best. Dominic



Thanks for your assistance, many retailers could learn a lot about customer service from yourselves.



 I received both my items this afternoon with no problems, thankyou very much for the consideration regarding the book and supplying an efficient and friendly service.

thanks again, Chris


Parts arrived this morning and guitar neck is already in construction.

Thanks again, William
