About This Project

Tip of the day– don’t forget to bring extra strings and string changing tools to practice and gigs. The one time you forget you will undoubtedly break a string! Likewise for tube amplifiers, never forget to bring back up vacuum tubes, or a backup amplifier.

Tip of the day – every few string changes be sure to use fretboard conditioner such as hydrate or guitar honey on the unfinished parts of your acoustic guitar. The fretboard and bridge will dry out causing loose frets and cracked bridges.

Tip of the day – if you’re going to put your guitar in storage for an extended period of time don’t forget to loosen the strings! And an attic in Florida does not qualify as a place to store your instrument.
