Caring For Your Instrument

Guitar //

Wipe the strings and Instrument with a soft cloth after each time you play. This helps in removing any sweat residue from strings which will speed up corrosion.
Change your strings regularly
On average strings should be replaced every 1-3 months, players that perform would normally put a fresh set on before every performance. NOTE: If changing gauge of string a neck adjustment will most likely be required, talk to us for advice.
If your instrument is an Electric or Acoustic/Eclectric check that the input jack nut is tightened regularly.
Invest in a Hard Case.
This will help protect your instrument from dings but will also help prevent the need for uneccessary adjustments and servicing. At the very least a gig bag will also provide decent protection in lighter transport situations. NOTE: If flying overseas with your instrument a hard case is a must! Talk to us for the best option.
