Acoustic Guitar Setup & Repair by Dan Lashbrook

I began playing acoustic guitar in 1972, and came to realize there was a great need for improvement in tone, volume, ease of playing, and responsiveness. After playing for about ten years, I seriously searched for what could be done to improve guitars. There were very few set up options and in 1985 I started working at Down Home Guitars in Anchorage, Alaska. I learned and explored advanced techniques to improve guitar performance and determine which guitar attributes & adjustments provided the best gains.

Today, with over twenty-eight years setting up guitars, I apply all my experience and knowledge to each individual's unique instrument. I am committed to and thoroughly communicate with you about your instrument, the options available and the level of benefit you can expect from each setup option. You'll know what you will get out of your guitar for every investment so you can make informed decisions each step of the way.

Here's more on what I can do to really open up your guitar for its best sound ever.
