Our Quality Commitment

Our standard guitar setup is designed to give you low action (easy fretting) through the length of the neck. If you require higher action (e.g. for 'cowboy chord' play or heavy-hitting) please advise our staff at time of check-in. We guarantee the best possible setup to suit your needs, and within a week, if you need a follow-up adjustment to get it just right, please bring it back in. We will tweak it for no extra charge.
