TREAT YOUR­SELF TO A TUNE-UP

Guitarist - - Feature -

Like a car, your gui­tar won’t play to its full po­ten­tial un­less you have it reg­u­larly ser­viced. Now, while many of us are per­fectly au fait with the ‘black art’ of set­ups, many of us aren’t. Yes, we can put petrol and oil in our cars and pump up the tyres but that doesn’t make us me­chan­ics, right? So, treat your­self and your gui­tar to a pro­fes­sional set-up that will cover truss rod, nut, sad­dle and string height ad­just­ments plus you’ll have an ex­pe­ri­enced eye to in­form you on fret and fin­ger­board wear (and whether any ac­tion is nec­es­sary), not to men­tion any fail­ing elec­tri­cal com­po­nents. Like us, gui­tars wear, so an an­nual trip to your gui­tar doc is highly rec­om­mended.
