Open Mic: Tell Us How You Set Up and Maintain Your Guitar


Guitarists have a lot of tricks to get the best sound out of their instrument? What are your favorites?

Each Tuesday we open our mic to readers and lurkers alike to come out of the woodwork and tell us your thoughts and opinion, your experiences and mistakes, what you love and what you hate. We want to hear from you, and here’s your chance.

How do you set up your guitar to get the best sound out of it? Do you aim for a different sound when recording than you do for playing live? What are the biggest mistakes people use when setting up a guitar? What advice would you give a beginner?

Do you have a maintenance routine to keep your guitar in top condition? Do you have it professionally serviced? How often?

Please clarify whether your tips are for acoustic or electric guitar.
