High string height " Action "
It's the most common problem with the guitars that come through my door. Makes
the guitar difficult, if not impossible to play.
High action, or high string height is caused by four things normally.
1-Too much relief in the neck. " too much concave bow."
2-The cuts or notches in the nut are not deep enough, " mostly on new guitars
3-The saddle needs to be reduced in height. " easy fix "
4-Or over time , the top has bellied. " risen up "
These issues can all be fixed.
Lowering the action is achieved by addressing a combination of these issues.
It will feel and play like a different guitar with the action set properly.
If you would like me to look at your guitar. And discuss what needs to be done
to get it playing properly again.
bring it by anytime. NO COST to look at it.

The best Klon Centaur Professional Overdrive clone that's out there - the
StewMac Ghost Drive Pedal. These pedals are only available as kits, but you can
get one now that has been built and tested by an experienced Technician. This
pedal is modeled after the legendary, and outrageously expensive, Klon Centaur
Professional Overdrive. This is what StewMac says about their pedal kit:
"More than a "klone"—it's the closest we've ever seen to the real thing! Few
pedals reach mythical status like the Klon Centaur Professional Overdrive. We
scoured the world for the EXACT right components to recreate this "holy grail"
circuit. We dug deep to find the identical pair of 1N34A germanium diodes just
like the original. Many claim these diodes were the heart of the original Klon
and why so many of the imitators fall short.
Considered the finest transparent overdrive ever, the original Klon is
shrouded in mystery, epoxy, and hype—but amazingly, it delivers. It's a guitar
player's dream come true: saturated tube tone from your amp at a reasonable
volume. It doesn't change the character of your amp, you get just the right
amount of overdrive without losing your unique tone. It's relied on by
countless players like Joe Perry, Mike McCready, Joe Bonamassa, John Mayer,
Nels Cline and more.
This pedal is extremely easy to use: just gain, treble, and output. The gain
is where the magic is by adding sweet saturation and harmonics while retaining
the character of your amp. The treble acts as a boost or cut, allowing you to
dial in the perfect mid-range for your tone."
Check out reviews here:
Included with each pedal is a new D'Addario 9-Volt DC 500mA Adaptor and an
Outlaw Effects 5-Way Daisy Chain Extension Cable, so you can run your new Ghost
Drive, and 4 other pedals, battery free. Price is $250.
