Haywire 8 Point Gig Ready Guitar Process
Point 1:  4-axis alignment of the guitar neck
Each guitar neck is checked and adjusted to be sure it is true and straight to ensure proper alignment on all axis. This step ensures proper action and allows for more accurate and easier guitar tuning, playing and set-up in the following steps.
Point 2:   Inspect and lube the guitar tuning gears
Before installing the guitar tuning gears, each one is checked thoroughly. Each tuning gear is adjusted so that there is no play in the mechanism. They are then lubricated to insure smooth and even movement to make your guitar tune accurately.

Point 3:  Potting the guitar pickups
We dip the pickups in hot wax to reduce squeal and unwanted guitar feedback.
Point 4:  Prep the guitar body
Upon installing the guitar electronic components, great care is taken to ensure that all wires are properly routed, spaced, and grounded to ensure years of trouble free service with your guitar to get it Gig Ready.

Point 5:   Level and polish the frets
This insures that all of the guitar frets are level, eliminating any possibility of fret buzz due to unevenness.
Point 6:  Radius the guitar strings
Most guitar necks have a contour over the top of the neck called the radius. Furthermore, we adjust the strings to make sure the height of each string follows the contour of the guitar neck radius to get it Gig Ready.
Point 7:  Adjusting the overall guitar string height and the action
Once we set the contour and radius of the guitar strings, it’s time to adjust the overall height of the strings from the top of the frets to the bottom of the guitar strings.

Point 8:  Set the guitar intonation
This step is done twice. Most of all, the intonation is set two times with a 24 hour “seat-in” period in between to allow the guitar to properly re-seat to the new adjustments to get it Gig Ready.
