When dealing with an acoustic guitar electronics problem, we’ll need to know if it has an onboard EQ. This will bring three key components into play: the battery, pickup and the volume knob.

Have you ever heard a guitar and thought “that doesn’t sound right but I’m not sure why?” Have you ever watched all guitarist tune to the
same tuner but one guitar just doesn’t sound right? It’s an “Intonation” issue. Could be old strings but doubtful. No worries, we’ll check and adjust it for you as well as any other problems with the bridge, truss rod, tuners, nut and frets.

We’ll get everything working together just right for you. Remember: your guitar needs to be in perfect tune when you’re going to perform with others.
