Why should I tune up my instrument?

Musical instruments need tune-up - just like your car.

All guitars require periodic adjustments to maintain playability. The Spoke & Note is your local source for fast, efficient, and friendly repairs and advice.

Guitar necks are generally made out of wood with metal inserts known as frets. The relationship between the guitar strings and the fret is known as the “action”. Most guitar manufacturers set the action somewhere between 3/32″ and 7/64″. The higher the action, the more difficult it is to depress the guitar strings creating fatigue and poor playability.

Should the guitar neck shift, or warp due to humidity or aging of the wood, the action may become too low, creating fret buzz and fret-outs.

Due to the precise standards required for good playability and the fact that wood tends to shift & change over time, all string instruments require periodic maintenance and adjustment.

If your guitar has become difficult to play a simple “setup” may resolve the problem. Our music repair shop is open to all, even for items that were not purchased at The Spoke & Note – bring it in, we’d love to help!
