Guitar Maintenance and Setup

Guitar Maintenance

Few things are as vital for the guitarist as the optimal MAINTENANCE and SETUP of our Electric Guitar.

To begin with, one of the best maintenance that we can do to our guitar is to avoid solar radiation, excess humidity and excessive dirt as much as possible. It is highly advisable to clean the guitar after playing, both the strings, the body and the neck.

Clean strings will prevent excessive wear on the frets and allow better gliding of the fingers. But over time the frets will inevitably end up slightly worn on the top, requiring fret crowning to be applied to the fretboard.

Below you have the links that explain how to carry out optimal Maintenance and Setup of the Electric Guitar, so that our instrument performs perfect.
