Look who we found at the corner of our office! If you wanna see them IRL, head to Tampines 1 today (1pm, 3pm, 5pm) where you can get a hug from them. They’ll be at Century Square at the same time tomorrow!
This gorgeous @rickenbackerofficial came in for a #protune but sadly it had some serious #issues we had to fix before we could set it up! The neck was severely bowed, and there was a buzzing rattle that was present when the guitar was played. Upon our inspection we found the treble side truss rod had broken. To safely remove the truss rod we disconnected the pick ups, removed the guards and masked off the areas. After the broken rod was removed we threaded up a new rod on our lathe. We then cut it to length, threaded the other side on our lathe, installed the truss rod and began to adjust the neck relief. Because of the drastic bow in the neck we are adjusting it in small increments for several days to give the neck a chance to return to a playable state. The goal is to get it straight as possible before restringing the guitar and then final adjusting the neck relief. Soon this beauty will be ready to go back out on the road! Do you have a fretted instrument with a broken truss rod or in need of love?! If so give us a call 410-617-0584. You can always also drop off or ship us whatever musical instrument that could use our help.
