DIY Self-gratifying Guitar & Bass thread

Hi ,
I'm John Lau from PJ . After soooo many months on twiddling around Low yet net , I decided well.. maybe its time I gain up some guts and share some of my
personal knowledge over the years . For some who already know who I am and visited my workshop , thank you . For those who dont , I operate a guitar repair workshop in PJ SS2 , I also conduct several guitar servicing workshop a year in music institutions for the past 4 years , these info are for sharing . Many times people ask "why you sharing? you not cari makan with this meh ? "  , My answer is .. Not all work you need to send to a pro , many times , you can do a better job cuz no one knows your playing style better then you do . Every guitar is different , you like it or not.. I dont know if anyone's gonna read this long winded thread , but I guess its an OK attempt .. I'll try update this thread as much as my time may allow . I do have  a FB page which constantly have free tutorias , feel free to add me @ JohnLau guitar repair center . For those who would like to share , MOST welcome . I'm still on a constant learning progress , would love to also hear some insights and comments or even ways to improve the DIY services . Please note also , NO SALES PITCH PLEASE This is FREE INFO for sharing . Thanks in advance. For those who have questions or discussions , feel free to contact me @ 012-2666450 or my shop line @  03-78650722 .. But please be considerate... dun la call me after 11pm... tongue.gif

It's more likely that your bass requires a setup. If you'd like to DIY, or you'd like to understand the instrument, read: http://www.studybass.com/gear/bass-setup/

Hey guys, I was planning to start playing a guitar. Since I am new here and still planning to buy a guitar I might need some help to decide which brand to buy since I am also thinking about the budget. I have been searching online and found several reviews like this one, https://musicadvisor.com/best-guitar-brands/

I am open to any suggestions and I would love to hear some of your opinions on this one:) Thanks

I don't know anything about playing guitar, just a bit of the electronics.

I can't exactly remember, but I think I used the harmonics method to intonate my friend"s Ibanez decades ago.

Half an hour job.
