Quigtone Music has received the honor of best of the rim music store for the fourth year in a row! We would like to thank our customers and students for their continued support and choosing to shop local!
Including today (November 15th), there are only 40 days until Christmas. Here at Quigtone Music we have been getting in what we can to help with your shopping needs. Supply chains are very limited and we are fortunate to have gotten in some acoustic and electric guitars, along with some accessories and amps. So now is the perfect time to stop by and get those musicians on your list something very cool!
In my repair shop, I am often asked how often a “truss rod” should be adjusted. Unfortunately, there is no clear response for this question. The truss rod is in place in case it is needed, not because it is needed. In an ideal world, your truss rod would never require an adjustment unless your instrument has a flexible neck and you are changing string gauges. In fact, older guitars did not have these rods, and the curvature of the neck was adjusted using different methods of fretting and re-fretting the instrument.
