Rickenbacker 4003 Refinish

We picked up this poor creature off ebay for well less than $1000. It was a bit of a risk as we had no idea what it would look like under the .250 thick epoxy finish.  Fortunately it was not as bad as we feared and it looks like we have a VERY workable surface to refinish. Keep an eye on this space as we provide updates on the project.




What does it mean to have my guitar “set-up”?

Is your guitar hard to play? Are the strings high off the fretboard? Has it recently changed and become hard to play? Did you get a new guitar online and it just isn’t what you expected?

All of these issue point to a guitar needing “set-up”. Yeah but what does that mean? A set-up is making adjustments to your guitar so that it plays better. Many times it involves getting the strings closer to the frets so it’s not so hard to play. Or it could be that you are using strings that are a bigger size than what you need as a beginner and then adjusting the guitar to the newer size string with a neck adjustment.

The idea is that playing guitar should be enjoyable and if you are not enjoying it due to your equipment that is not good! I guarantee that I can make your guitar more enjoyable to play or its totally free.

Hello everyone! Hope you are safe and healthy.

Man, what a weird time to be alive eh? The good news is the guitar industry is booming with everyone staying at or working from home and we are grateful for that. We are keeping up with demand by booking appointments in 30 minute increments to insure social distancing and offering contactless drop off too.

Let us know how we can help you with your guitar or bass. Even brand new instruments can have old strings (who knows how long the guitar has been in stock?). Bring it by and we will give you a free consultation and do some measurements in order to give you an honest opinion on your guitar and if it needs any adjustments or NOT! With the liberal return policies most shops currently have, it’s totally worth it to have a professional check it out so you are not surprised!

Hey, did you know we now stock Ernie Ball strings? It’s TRUE!

Well, hang in there folks and keep safe.

Loving SoCal!
