EVH Frankenstein @shroprockdoctor for string change to 10s from the installed 9s & intonation tweek. Neck relief is minimal straight from the factory so not much to do. #guitarfx #guitar #guitarrepair  #bridgnorthbusiness  #shropshire #audiorepair #fender #squire #fenderamps #marshallamps #ibanez #Epiphone #gibson #peavey #staggguitar #marlin #westwoodguitar #Jackson #prsguitars #lagguitars #fenderguitars #electricguitar #charvel #charvelguitars #floydrose #kramer #kramerguitars […]

This one has been dropped @shroprockdoctor this evening for a string change to a set of Ernie Ball 10s from the installed 9s & a check of the setup & intonation. Everything will be as the factory put it out as the guitar was only recently purchased. #guitarfx #guitar #guitarrepair  #bridgnorthbusiness  #shropshire #audiorepair #audiorecording #fender […]

@shroprockdoctor today we have Gretsch Setzer signature model number two belonging to Mr McCreadie. This guitar unlike its partner in last week does have a decent nut installed. Brief is to clean up the frets & again investigate tuning instability when using the Bigsby. My thoughts on this issue after speaking to Dean as it […]

Ibanez @shroprockdoctor. This one is mine but for a good while has required a service with regards to its wiring. So new bourns 500k audio pots & a general tidy up of all soldered connections. In addition, as this is mine & is definitely not pristine condition I opted to lose the obscene metal mount […]

Brian Setzer Gretsch @shroprockdoctor back in its case & ready to be returned to its owner. Frets dressed & polished to remove some lower fret wear, new bone nut to replace the horrendous one that was fitted (I don’t think it was the original factory nut) & finally a new volume potentiometer. #guitarfx #guitar #guitarrepair  […]

Gretsch @shroprockdoctor gets fret damage sorted. The wear was consistent all the way up the neck but there were some nasty grooves in the first few frets. The quickest way for me to sort this properly was to do a fret dress, removing the damage to the point where there is still a slight visual […]

Someone asked me the other day how I was going to fish the new potentiometer into place on this Gretsch hollow body. Well, like this using a length of surgical tubing. The soft tubing can be fished though the F hole with needle nose pliers & then stretched over the shaft of the pot. Wiggle […]

New nut day for the Gretsch @shroprockdoctor. One of the reasons this guitar came in was tuning instability related to tremolo use. Doing a visual I decided it was most likely the piece of crap nut that was fitted. I don’t think Gretsch would have fitted that nut to a guitar of this calibre. Anyway […]

Changing the volume potentiometer on the first of the signature model Brian Setzer Gretch guitars. This single control model is currently fitted with a CTS pot 500k linear +/-20% with standard rotational torque. For anyone interested the first image is from the CTS data sheet allowing you to decipher their code stamped into the rear […]
