Every serious guitarist learns to set up, repair, and maybe even customize their own instruments. It’s economical and fun and gives players insight into how and why their instruments sound the way they do, and how to make them sound better. Some amateur luthiers will even build their own instruments, at least those not famous enough to have custom guitars built for them by famous makers, an honor—maybe not unlike a basketball player having their own shoes—that tells the world they’re at ...

Suhr Guitar Talk :: What if I don't like the neck on my custom Suhr? Cost?

Author: brokeguitar Subject: What if I don't like the neck on my custom Suhr? Cost? Posted: Thu Sep 28, 2017 1:40 am (GMT -7) Topic Replies: 0 I ordered a Suhr awhile back and am expecting it to probably be finished in November or December. I ordered it with a straight 9.5" radius. I chose that radius because I didn't want to stray to far from the YJM Fender guitar I had.

Too Old to Rock ‘n’ Roll #2: Gear

(Previous.) Valentine’s Day weekend 2016 It’s a gray and frigid morning, a couple of weeks before my 49th birthday, and I am standing with my wife in a strip-mall Guitar Center. It’s a Saturday, and the place is crawling with kids too young even to be teenage dirtbags — tweeners, packs of them, whose mothers have dropped them here unattended while they go to browse the tchotchkes at the Christmas Tree Shops. The kids are not there to buy, or even to shop seriously; they are killing time, noodli...
