***TOP-NOTCH FENDER OFFSET SETUPS!***
Since acquiring my Jazzmaster and Jaguar, there have always been things about each guitar that bothered me, be it too much play in the tremolo arm, too-bright “bright” switches or simply the fretting-out of bent notes. I’ve taken months to address each of my concerns in-depth, and I feel confident in saying that I’ve mastered the quirks and cues of the Fender offset guitar! Bring in your Fender offset (Jazzmaster, Jaguar, Mustang, Bass VI, XII- you name it) for a free consultation!
***TREMOLO/VIBRATO ISSUES? WE CAN HELP!***
I used to hate vibrato units of any kind: Strats always felt far too tight, Bigsbys felt too loose, and I could never keep them in tune. Now, I can’t live without them- especially the oft-derided Gibson Maestro Vibrola.
