Fender, Gibson, Aria, Squire setups & refrets = busy

It’s been another great week so far at the Tonefinder workshop. I’ve got a lovely Gibson Les Paul Studio in for a fret level and setup, plus last night I collected a rather stunning Fender Telecaster (USA) which needs some tweaking. There’s also a lovely Aria acoustic in for a setup plus a gorgeous Squire vintage series P-bass that just needs a gentle nudge towards perfection.

Fender Squire P-Bass
The Squire Vintage series P-Bass needs a few tweeks here and there to make it a very, very playable bass guitar.

Monday evening saw me over at Eastleigh after being invited by Martin Dearlove to give a talk to the Hampshire Guitar Club about guitar maintenance and repair. It was a fantastic evening and I had the pleasure of meeting some great people and some amazing guitars. New friends were made, what more could I have asked for.

I also have another Gibson Les Paul in (a Standard this time) for a refret and setup. That’s going to be an interesting one because I suspect that when it had it’s last refret (this is a 20 year old guitar) whoever did the work used super-glue to hold the frets in. It’s a good job that I enjoy a challenge. There’s also the normal (read high) levels of setups etc in but I won’t bore you with all the details.

I’ve also taken the plunge and ordered a new camera, the one on my phone simply isn’t up to the job. Watch this space for photo updates etc. In preparation for the new photos I’ve set up a Pinterest page and a Flickr album. I’ll try and keep it all as up to date as I can.

Don’t forget you can follow Tonefinder over on Twitter and Facebook too. Isn’t social media wonderful?

Oh, and one last thing, please check out the gift vouchers page and also the refer-a-friend section. The gift vouchers would make fantastic presents (plus they’re a great way of avoiding any future price rises) and by recommending Tonefinder to others you could earn yourself some free (yes FREE) guitar work. How good is that!?!
