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.
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.
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!?!
