LIVE DEMO: The fruits of my labor…

Please check out this video of me playing a newly fixed stratocaster. It needed a lot of love when it came into Guitarley’s! It received some neck repair, fret work, full set up, new bone nut, and a new set of pickups from Seymour Duncan ( http://www.seymourduncan.com ). The “Everything Axe Set” sound outstanding! You can check this link out directly to my youtube page or you can visit and ‘like’ my shop’s Facebook page and see this job and lot’s more!

Fretless Bass Conversion

Fretless Bass Conversion

This was my big project for last week! A new customer brought in his USA Fender Jazz Bass (5 string) that was difficult to play due to a strange warp in the neck. He also wanted a fretless bass to add to his arsenal and already enjoyed his other fretted guitars. So it was decided to convert this guitar, sanding out the warp in the process. I removed the plastic factory nut and frets, filled fret slots with ebony, sanded everything nice and smooth, did a custom bone nut, threw on some nice flat wounds, and set it up nice! The guitar looks and plays great now and finally has a purpose for its owner. For more photos of the bass before and after, and other projects, check out my Facebook page by clicking on the photo.
