It doesn't matter how long you have been playing the guitar, if it has been 2 months, 2 years or 20 years. What matters is, if it is still FUN!
A guitar is designed and built with precision, exacting tolerances. Fret height, fingerboard radius, scale length, string height, neck angle, etc. all these things contribute to the "playability" of the instrument. When these components get out of adjustment or just plain worn out, it is hard to play, it doesen't sound good-its just not fun anymore.
So the question is: Don’t you hate it when your guitar is “resisting’ you? You know what I mean, it is not responsive to your input. Maybe the tone is kind of shallow or it could be that some notes just “fret out” or are dull, they don’t sing, they don’t ring. Its not how a guitar should act!!
I am here to help.
My name is Hector Trevino and I am “the guitar guy”, guitar tech, luthier, whatever you want to call me, I just love to make guitars sing!
I care about your guitar as much, if not more than you do!
Maybe its time for some minor maintenence like adjusting the neck relief (truss rod) or a noisy tone pot, or maybe the repair is more involved, like leveling and dressing the frets, whatever it may need; I can assure you of this:
When you bring your instrument to The Guitar Workshop, You will not be leaving your guitar with a salesman who will put a note on it for the guitar tech, no, you will be talking TO the guitar tech.
I will ask you questions about the problem. I will carefully examine and evaluate the guitar. I may suggest options for you to consider.
I want your guitar to play well, as much as you want it to!
