October? Already?

Where is this year disappearing to? It only seems like last week it was Christmas and now we'll soon be having to start thinking about the festive season all over again. Hey ho (rather than Ho Ho).

It's been a busy few weeks here at the Tonefinder workshop and I thought it would be a good opportunity to write a blog article regarding a very popular modification that I perform on Boss DS-1 pedals. You can read that article here where I go into detail about repairing a broken DS-1 and then the steps I take to modify it. It's well worth a read.

And I've also been asked quite a few times about how I go about making replacement bone saddles and nuts. As it happens, I've had a couple of acoustics in this week that required new saddles so I've written a blog post about that too. You can read all about carving bone saddles here and at some point, I'll write one about making a bone nut too.

I've got some really interesting projects in at the moment. One is a Gibson Les Paul Studio that sustained a headstock breakage which wasn't fixed properly by a previous luthier. I've also got an Epiphone Wildkat with some interesting pickup issues which are causing some head scratching but I think I should have that one cracked in the next day or so. I do enjoy a challenge.

The festive season is fast approaching and for many of my clients, it's their busiest time of year. With the nights drawing in and the ambient temperature falling now is the time to get your gear serviced ready for the upcoming merriment. Please reply to this email or contact me here to get your amp or guitar (or both) booked in.

Hope to speak to you soon. Stay frosty, folks.
