Set-up, Maintenance, & Electronics Q&A for Guitars and Basses
Anthony Wellington gets many questions from students about set-up, maintenance and electronics!
Questions about string height, neck curve, when and how to change strings, cleaning, what’s a DYI task and what really should be done by a pro, what tools should go to the gig and what tools should be on hand at home, pot problems, battery wires, jack issues, finish, woodworking…, just to name a few!
So, we decided to enlist 3 of his favorite luthiers to help answer those questions and whatever you bring to the table. Or should I say “workbench”?
- Scott Tucker, PST Guitars
- Scott Sterling, Lea Bass
- Andrew McSpadden, McSpadden Guitars
These luthiers are local to Anthony in Southern Maryland and have all done great work on his guitars and basses. And, they’re cool dudes!
We are going to have a “round table” that is really a “ ‘round the workbench” clinic.
The idea is to pick their brains and find out what they do the same and what they do differently. We want students to send questions ahead of time and ask questions impromptu during the clinic.
The luthiers will have instruments ready and on the bench to demo what they’re talking about, too.
This is gonna be a cool hang, and we can’t wait!
