Haywire Custom Guitars
I first started building guitars… because of the realization that I had a set of guitar repair skills to offer the guitar players around me who did not have those skills. When someone contacts the Haywire Custom Shop for guitar repair or have a guitar set up they’re apprehensive. It’s similar to the feeling that a surgeon has when faced with a decision to operate on his own child. Sure, it’s hard to let go of your guitar-
even for some needed repairs, updating and modifications. So, trust is the key. Once the player has faith that we care and will do a good job then the process begins in earnest.

Players are kept in the loop and informed with progress on their custom guitar all along the way. Sometimes they think of things they want to do but forgot to ask.
One of the main functions of a Custom Guitar Shop should be to hit the target the first time by building as close to a perfect instrument as possible! At Haywire our aim is getting better every day! The job is only complete when you are completely happy with your guitar because you’ll use it every day.
Sometimes a guitar setup requires more than meets the eye. Older guitars need more care because of heavy use. It may be that the frets need to be leveled. Then, after a fret leveling job your guitar frets need to be recrowned (round back the tops of frets like new). If your frets have divots (string dents from heavy handed playing) most of it can be removed when we are leveling the frets. Fully removing all divots requires fret sanding. We try and take the least invasive method to save you fret wear, and excessive fret loss. Guitar fret crowing brings back the rounded shape to the tops of all your frets. It’s truly a lot of work but very much worth it as it allows lower action with no fret buzz with better tuning and intonation results. Isn’t your old guitar worth it? We think so.
