  • examining a guitar for cracks 
  • examining the “true” of a neck
  • changing strings
  • cleaning the fretboard
  • input jack repair & maintenance
  • maintaining proper humidity
  • pickup adjustments
  • fret erosion and dents
  • problems associated with the nut
  • saddle adjustments
  • how to set intonation
  • tremolo-bar spring adjustments
  • fret buzz fixes
