You can now pre-order my newest book. A pocket guide for setting up all types of guitars and basses!
Comes with a FREE 64th Metal ruler needed for all proper setup steps throughout this book! A $20 value!
Instruments can not be setup by “feel” or by “eye”, there are too many optical illusions created and inconsistencies using those methods. Instruments are best set up using math, hence the ruler. This
book has all measurements listed for each part of your instrument. You can use this book to get every guitar or bass you own to play amazing!
