Mikes Music Workshop


I cannot recommend Mikes Music too highly.
He stayed open late so I could drop off my daughters clarinet which needed repairs before an upcoming exam. He turned it round very quickly and allowed me to collect it from his house very late. Thank you so much & wow what service. we are customers for life.
Great service from someone who clearly loves instruments and knows how to make them play beautifully.

New nickel nut on the Les Paul, cut perfectly! 👍🏾
If you want expert, bespoke, friendly and financially fair work done on your instruments, look no further than Mike Bosley in Bognor Regis. Mike has many years experience of building and repairing guitars, banjos, ukuleles etc. and is one of the nicest guys you could meet into the bargain (not common in most music shops!). Thanks a million Mike for all your help and great work. See you soon, Best, Doug MacGowan
Many thanks Mike for the refret job on my Strat, 1st class job and it plays like a dream.

Aria FA75


A beautiful example of a hollow body Jazz/retro guitar with Bigsby tremolo.�This guitar is in mint condition and has been played very little.�The Aria FA-75 is everything would would expect from a high quality Japanese company like Aria.�This guitar is conceived and aimed at attracting attention from players that like Gretsch and other retro feel instruments of a similar type.�The pickups and electrics are high quality as found in all Aria guitars and encourage a smooth sustain with plenty of treble and a warm bass.�This particular example has a great action and has been setup. It comes with a new set of strings of your Gauge choice and a final personal setup once these are fitted.�Contact Mike to arrange to come and view the guitar of pop in during our regular opening hours.


Some nice pre owned instruments have come in in the last few days.

Starting on Saturday January 7th January 2023, we will be running a ukulele class for children together with their parents (children can attend on their own if preferred). You do not need to have a ukulele to begin attending the class as we have some that we can lend at the session, but it is recommended to get one.

Just in - beautiful mint condition Hand wired Vox Ac 4 HW 1 valve amplifier. Amazing sound.


Night shift- tonight I’m re-fretting a classical guitar with traditional gold brass frets.


Saturday night I played with the Regis Jazz Band and Bognor Regis Concert Band in a joint Festive Charity Concert to Raise money for the local food bank and Christians Against Poverty.
If you would like to make a donation to these very worthwhile causes I have added a link in the comments below. Thank you. Mike


Almost finished ….. see post below for detailed photos of the job

Todays job: very tricky little job saxophone crook completely bent and crushed. Not possible to get a replacment.
When it comes to sax crook dents you have to be careful so as not to upset the intonation of the instrument. So as well as reforming the neck I had to pay carful attention to the diameters and taper. Would it work …. See the next post.


Night Shift - working on a Bach Strad trumpet with a nasty bend and dent in the bell pipe.


So far today has been a flute day this is the 3rd Yamaha I have had on the bench today.
Customers this time of year tend to want single issue fixes rather than full servicing and this is no exception. I must say, as an observation the older Japanese Yamaha flutes are far superior in quality to the modern recently made Indonesian ones.


Adjusting the tenon by taking a skim off the wood shoulders of a buffet E13 so it fits the socket correctly without getting stuck.

So today I made some more brass replacement inserts for the rather breakable plastic/ nylon pins they now fit to all buffet clarinets. These won’t break before a concert or exam and simply need some grease to keep them working fine. ( they always used to be metal. in the old days !

Just available - pre sales check on Yamaha YPC 62 piccolo in excellent condition available in time for Christmas!


Sophie is a teacher at the Music school next to the shop. We can offer rental instruments and a great range of new and second hand fully checked and reconditioned instruments for sale.

We’d like to introduce our woodwind tutor, Sophie, oboe aficionado and saxophone specialist who also teaches clarinet, flute and piano.

Sophie has been with us for just over a year now and absolutely loves passing on her knowledge and skill to her students. She is a member of numerous high profile orchestras and bands but still finds time to tutor the students here with us.

If you’ve ever fancied playing a woodwind instrument or are looking for a new tutor, get in touch and let Sophie guide you on your musical journey!


Whilst repairing the double bass this evening I tried out one of the new d’addario rechargeable tuners.
Absolutely brilliant!
It picks up the low e on the bass no problem at all is fast to respond bright and easy to use and charge up.
Love the way the display rotates too.
Adding this one to the work bench no more batteries to change and dispose of.

This evenings job, new double bass endpin and set up.


Night shift - this evening is a “fret job” on a Fender Strat. I have levelled frets, re profiled and polished them. Just removed all the masking they really shine just like tiny mirrors.


Workshop dinner this evening at the work bench, overhauling a clarinet.

Night shift - regulation and fixing the leaks on a lovely Keilworth SX 90 Baritone saxophone.
This is really a very nice instrument and in excellent condition. Big fat warm sound reminiscent of the Conn bari saxes of the past but with the advantage of a clear brilliant high register. ( that’s in tune !)
And the good part is it is for sale for only £4250.00 as from tomorrow. (Bargain !)

Todays job - clarinet with a broken bell tenon ring and a crack in the bell. The clarinet is also in for a full overhaul and refurbish.


It works !


Looking more tuba like….


Tuba is going in the wrong direction I have found more bad joints so now even more bits to put back together. It’s turning into a tuba kit….
