ENDPINS

Our brass buttons hold the strap and come in:

  • Black
  • Gold
  • Silver

FRETBOARD & BRIDGE

We clean and recondition the frets, fingerboard & bridge so that:

  • Strings last longer
  • Looks new again
  • Darkens the wood
  • Leaves a smooth feel
  • No dirt or residue buildup
  • Helps prevent fretboard shrinkage

HEAD, NECK & BODY

We do the following to keep your instrument in good playing condition: 

  • Clean & polish the body
  • Lubricate nut & saddle
  • Lubricate gears
  • Adjust - saddle and pickup height
  • Deoxidize - selector switch & knobs as needed
  • Tighten - nuts, screws, knobs, end pins and cable jack
  • Adjust the neck angle (1) to prevent cracks at the bridge, neck and top (2) to straighten the neck making the strings closer to the fretboard and easier to play.

HUMIDITY & TEMPERATURE

Our humidifiers and sensors maintain 45% humidity and 65 degree temperature to prevent:

  • Cracks
  • String buzz
  • Finish checking
  • Going out of tune
  • Permanent damage

INTONATION

Keeps your instrument in tune all the way up the neck by adjusting:

  • neck allignment
  • each individual saddle to it's proper distance

RESTRINGING

What deadens strings? Dirt, oil & sweat oxidizes strings after 15 hours of play therefore:

  • Wash hands before play
  • Wipe strings after play
  • Change strings frequently
  • Consider coated strings that last 4 X's longer

Properly installed new strings improve your:

  • Feel
  • Tone
  • Tuning
  • Sustain
  • String life
