Acoustic Guitar Repairs

Acoustic guitars are fragile things, and even the most cared for instruments suffer from wear and tear due to playing.

 

Fret jobs, set ups - those things just happen.  This article is written on a basic info level - but if you happen to be in North Texas - then I've got links to a custom guitar builder and master repairman that I personally have used in the past for fret jobs and set up problems on my guitars.

The Santa Cruz Tony Rice Guitars.

I figure that everyone here knows all about Tony Rice's 1935 Martin D 28, and the history of the thing - but I wrote this article for people who might not know about it, and I hope maybe some folks here at flatpicking Guitar online will enjoy this as well.

 

It's really more about the Santa Cruz Tony Rice models though.

 

If you've never seen the super clip of Nine Pound Hammer presented here with Tony and the some of the best and most known bluegrass…

Gibson Guitars.

Of course I know that most flatpickers prefer Martin style instruments - I certainly do, but I was raised with a flatpicking grandfather that mostly played Gibson.

 

Could be that some folk's have a particular style of playing that is best represented by Gibson Dreadnoughts or Super Jumbo guitars?

 

If so - then I want to hear about it, and if possible, hear you play as well!!!

 

Anyway, Gibson still makes great guitars - and who doesn't think the J…

Easy Solution To a Common Acoustic/Electric String Problem

Found a solution to an often mentioned problem when having installed a piezo type bridge plate pickup transducer. The consensus of several Internet responders who have done this is that while the sound from strings 2 through 6 is good, the high e-string  is way too quiet with no real ring, sustain, etc. Some have suggested moving the transducer for that string away from a brace, Adding a 4th transducer, a not so easy job, etc.I recently installed a JJB pickup (jjbelectronics) in a 40 year old…See More

"Dan -- I ran out of time to say much but I want to thank you for your beginner's articles in FGM. I work them out fingerstyle on a nylon-string baritone ukulele."

FGM DGBE

I play two-thirds of a guitar. I have some wrist issues with fretting the 6th string. I enjoy finger picking but have been an avid follower of Flatpicking Guitar Magazine for about 6 years. I find Dan Huckabee's beginners arrangements great for the bari-uke. I have also found much of Adam Granger's work suits my DGBE tuning.I once took a class from Dan Miller in Palo Alto, California and he told me that his daughter was playing the baritone uke. I have e-mailed Adam about his new FGM…See More

Arthur Knowler replied to William Gray's discussion Heavy Picks Anyone?
"I have a left handed Blue Chip TAD 3R 40 pick and I find it a great pick to use, no scraping and quick on the strings. The only problem is that the tone is quite bass-y which is great for lead picking or Mandolin but not so good for rhythm…"
