Give vin­taGe Gui­tars ex­tra road-proof­inG

Guitarist - - Feature -

Gui­tar tech Chris Lawson, who’s worked with ev­ery­one from Robert Plant to Peter Gabriel, says, “It’s nice to use vin­tage gear but you have to get clas­sic gui­tars gig-ready be­cause old stuff will wear out and break. Do­ing things like chang­ing the ma­chine-heads is a com­mon one. Keep the orig­i­nals, ob­vi­ously, so you can put them back on, but if you’re chang­ing strings ev­ery day those beau­ti­ful orig­i­nal Klu­sons, or what­ever they are, don’t like it and they’re usu­ally worn any­way. So my ad­vice would be to change them out for a tour and then put the orig­i­nal ones back in at the end. That kind of thing makes a lot of sense.”
