Welcome to guitarless
You can’t always have your guitar with you. Oh sure, you’ll do your best – perhaps, even though you’re frantically tapping away on the Internet, you’ve also got a guitar in your hands like some sort of crazy, axe-wielding octobot – but, for most of us, there are times when we simply have no axe to wield.
That’s where we come in.
Maybe you’re in work, avoiding the boss. Maybe you’re surfing while your significant other glances grumpily from their soap operas. Whatever – for all the times you’ve no guitar there’s guitarless
We’re a guitar blog with a bit of a difference. Sure, we’ll have the usual news, reviews, opinion and general ramblings. Yes, we’ll throw in some solid advice and how-to articles to help keep your guitar or bass in tip-top shape.
Not content with that, however, we’ll also bring you articles from a real – jobbing – guitar repair workshop.
Our main contributor, Gerry Hayes, has been building custom guitars and repairing all sorts of stringed things since his belly was thinner and his hair thicker. Gerry runs Haze Guitars and is lucky enough to get to work on (and have a sneaky play of) plenty of great guitars. When he gets something interesting into the workshop, he’ll post a walk-through here. You can get to see how to perform repairs, from minor tweaking to full-on axe-surgery.
We might even throw in a couple of surprises along the way. Who knows.
We, sincerely, hope you enjoy the site and would love to hear from you if you have questions, comments, or suggestions. Pop over to the Contact page and raise your hand.
Remember, never go guitarless
