Haywire Custom Guitars 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. Most of all 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, we check each one thoroughly. The 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, we take great care to ensure that all wires are properly routed, spaced, and grounded to provide years of trouble free service with your gig ready guitar.

Point 5:   Level and polish the frets

We insure 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. We adjust the strings to make sure the height of each string follows the contour of the guitar neck radius.

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. 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. These focus points help your instrument as a result bring it up to specs. You’ll have a gig ready guitar.
