  • After three mediocre setups by other shops I broke down and had my Les Paul Plek’d by Westwood Music. They finally were able to unlock the potential in this guitar! It now plays like a dream!

  • “I have played guitar for several years and felt like I hit a plateau in my abilities so I decided to seek out lessons. I took lessons with James at Westwood and his patience and insight into theory opened up a whole new world for me.”

    Cesar
  • “I have had my guitar setup by 2-3 different guys and none of them could figure out how to get it right. Chelsea at Westwood listened to what I needed and nailed it the first time. I will never take my guitars to anyone else.”

    Morgan
