The Works

Rate: $130-150

"The Works" includes a complete fret dress and leveling, fret polish, complete setup including truss rod adjustment, string height / action and intonation.  This work will minimize fret buzz, eliminate fret dents and pitting, and improve the overall tone and play-ability of the instrument.  In addition, the whole guitar will be cleaned, and all hardware and controls will be inspected and lubed.
