Repairs / Setups
For 2021: At this moment I can’t take new appointments for setup and maintenance services, due the waiting list and my building schedule for new guitars.
If you still got some questions you can send me a message .
Craftsmanship, precision and the feel, are important factors when it comes to maintaining a guitar. As a guitar builder and a guitarist myself, I’ve got the experience and skills to help you with the best possible setup for your guitar.
From hobby- to professional players; a good setup will give you extra playing comfort and musicality and overall enjoyment of your instrument.
Setup including leveling the frets:
- Frets: leveling
- Frets: crowning
- Frets: polishing
- Neck adjustment (incl. the neck angle - if possible)
- Bridge adjustment
- Checking the functionality of all hardware parts
- Intonation adjustment
- String height - action adjustment
- Neck cleaning and oiling the fretboard
- Cutting the nut slot grooves
The 2 main points of contact on most guitars are the bridge and nut. Therefore a good bone nut is very important for your sound and for tuning stability. The advantage of a nut made from bone versus a plastic nut is, that a bone nut is made from a harder natural material which provides more resonance, tone, sustain and overall stability.
Replacing worn out frets or a total refret job on a fingerboard is what’s called refretting.
This service includes adjustments and fret leveling according setup specs: old worn frets are being carefully removed and the neck prepared and provided with new frets.
I offer different fret heights / widths from Jescar fretwire according to your choice. The work on a Maple fingerboard or bounded fingerboard takes more time than on an unbound Rosewood fingerboard.
