JLG Guitar Tuition - Guitar Repairs

 

String "action" is the height of the strings from the fretboard. There are factory recommenstaions for most guitars i.e, Fender Stratocasters, Telecasters, Gibson SG's etc... While some people are happy to set their strings to these settings, others would prefer their guitars set up to their own specification. I can perfrom basic setups on electrics and acoustics (Acoustics especially can be hard to play if the strings are too high) and can also be adjusted making chords (Barre chords especially) a lot easier to play.)

Guitar Services Price List:
Sooner or later, your guitar needs its strings changed. Strings get worn out, start to sound "muffled" (guitars sometimes are factory fitted with much too heavy a guage) and generally after time, lose that "ping" they had when you first bought the guitar. While it may seem easy to change a string, its surprising the amount of times strings are incorrectly replaced, or wound on the tuning pegs the wrong way. This also goes for Electric and Classical guitars as well as Acoustics. I can change the strings on your guitar in a short time and perform a "checkup"/clean up of other parts just to make sure everything is okay.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Noisy "pots"/Basic rewiring/soldering/Input Jack issues- (Electrics/Bass Only)

 

 

Guitar Action (Strings lowered/adjusted) £15.00
Strings Changed (including full clean/check up) £15.00 (includes strings)
Rewiring Pots/Input Jacks/Soldering etc.. £15.00 (estimate of parts given first)

 

 

Its quite common for the "pots" i.e, Potentiometers to become "scratchy" i.e, they just crackle and pop when you turn the volume and/or tone controls. This is usually caused by a build up of dust/dirt over the years. Most pots can be cleaned and in the worst cases replaced. They are relatively inexpensive and if they need replaced I would contact you to let you know/give an estimate before any work was carried out.
Another quite common problem I see all the time is issues with the Jack input on electric and bass guitars. The wires inside a jack are quite thin and with the guitar cable being pulled in and out so often the wires can work loose and eventually may need resoldered. I have had to do this quite a lot on my own guitars in the past.
If you have any queries or questions re: any of the above or are worried about the work needing done on your guitar - please get in touch and we canb have a chat about the best way forward....
