Instruments are fragile and do break. It happens to the best of us. Many times, these issues can be repaired.Through my years playing and teaching, I have fixed many guitar related problems for myself, my students, and fellow musicians. Here are a few common problems that I am experienced with repairing, but not limited to:
electronics on many guitars and basses often leave a little something to
be desired. Luckily, there are many options available for players today.
Active or Passive, Alnico or Ceramic choices are nearly endless for pickups.
But the components are only a fraction of the equation. Electronic devices
need to be installed. Due to the delicate materials and multitude of configurations,
electronic work is best left to an experienced repairman.
I have used and installed pickups from every manufacturer and have a great knowledge of what is available. I have helped to guide my customers to products that would suit them when they are unsure what to get. I believe the electronics of your instrument are probably the most critical factor to your sound and playing feel (aside from setup, of course).
I have done many complex schematics on my own guitars and customer's as well. I understand coil tapping, series-parallel connection, and can offer creative solutions to wiring dilemmas. Simple or complex, I know you will be satisfied with my work and competitive pricing. Feel free to contact me for help with any component decisions.
doesn't matter what guitar you have, if it's not in tune, it won't sound
good. The same goes for setup.
A great guitar that is not setup just won't play well. The sad truth is that even some of the best guitar manufacturers don't spend enough time setting up thier instruments. By the time your guitar or bass is recieved by the vendor it has probably experienced temperature changes that will affect it's playability. Unfortunately, the salesmen at guitar stores lack the time and often experience to correct or recognize these issues.
String gauge changes, tuning changes, weather, and curious guitarists (You know who you are, hahaha) can all put a guitar's setup out of whack. Some of the cheapest guitars will play well due to a good setup. Great guitars play amazingly after a propper setup. Neck relief, action, intonation, pickup height, and tremolo float are all critical to ensuring that your instrument is all that it was designed to be.
I can help you determine what string gauge you need for your tuning, style of music, and playing preference. I have a lot of experience adjusting instruments. If you think your guitar or bass is not performing to it's abilities, send it on over for a complete setup.
