October 16th, our luthier Sam Stewart (@youngesteban) will be hosting a setup seminar at the shop from 4-6(ish)! Sam will walk through an electric guitar setup start to finish, leaving no stone unturned. Topics covered will include:
Parts of the guitar
How to change strings
Becoming comfortable with the truss rod
Action adjustments at the bridge/nut
Proper cleaning technique and products
Pickup adjustment and cleaning electronics
Questions are welcome and encouraged so come ready to learn!
Class format will be lecture style, with the setup presented via a document cam so everyone can get a clear view. Class size will be limited to ensure everyone can get the most out of their time in the seminar. Ticket price is $75 and will include a generously offered discount code from our friends at @stewmac to purchase the tools talked about in class. Your ticket purchase will also gain you discounted access to future, hands-on repair classes to be announced in the coming months. Every ticket purchase will also enter you into a raffle for a Strum swag pack! Come have a beer and learn a little (or a lot) about something!
