Hello, my name is Andrew and I’m a guitar player, technician, and collector. If you want to know more about guitars, I’m your man.

I’ve been playing guitars for over 40 years and fixing them professionally for over 25 years. I’ve made guitars and repaired almost every kind of guitar out there, from cheap $100 guitars to custom boutique masterpieces that cost thousands of dollars.

Now, I want to share my knowledge with you. Here are some of the topics I cover:

The Strings: Learn about your strings here – how do they work? How do you change them? How long do they last? How does their gauge affect the sound?

The Neck: From frets to truss rods to fingerboards, we’ll explore the anatomy of the neck and all of its components right here.

The Body: The body is the part of the guitar that holds everything together. Without it, you wouldn’t have an instrument! Let’s take a look at what makes up the electric guitar body – from pickguards to tremolos.

The Electronics: What makes an electric guitar “electric”? It’s all in the electronics – let’s take a look at pickups, potentiometers (volume/tone controls), switches,

Your guitar has two little switches on it. One of them is a pickup selector, and if you’re like me, you don’t even know what that does. No worries, it’s not like your guitar will explode if you leave it on the wrong setting. It does change the sound though, so let’s take a look at what these things do.

The other switch is a tone control. This one is pretty simple because it only has three settings: treble (up), normal, and bass (down). You can tell whether the tone is up or down by looking at the arrow on the switch. If it’s pointing up, then you have more highs. If it’s pointing down then you get more lows.

Hey! I’m John, a guitar player from the Netherlands. I’m passionate about guitars, music and guitar gear. On this blog I want to share my passion with you. I’ve been playing guitar for over 10 years now and that’s why I know how hard it can be to find all the right information you need to make an informed decision on your purchase.

That’s why I started Guitar Gear Finder: a website that helps you find the right gear at the right price. From my own experience, but also by helping hundreds of other guitar players to improve their skills and tone, I know what works (and what doesn’t). And that’s exactly what this blog is about: in-depth reviews, guides and tips about all things related to electric guitars.

I hope you enjoy reading these articles as much as I enjoyed writing them!

There are many different types of electric guitar bridges, and they all serve a purpose. Regardless of the type of bridge you have on your guitar, they all serve the same purpose: to allow the string vibration to be transferred to the body of the guitar. Additionally, there are different types of bridges that allow for different things; for example, some offer more sustain or others offer more adjustment for intonation and height.

The most common type of bridge found on an electric guitar is a fixed bridge. A fixed bridge is a simple bridge that is either screwed or bolted to the body of the guitar. A fixed bridge is by far the most common design because it allows for easy string changing and intonation adjustments. Generally, this type of bridge has six saddles that can be adjusted individually for each string allowing for individual string height, or action, and intonation adjustment.

Most stock guitars will come with a fixed bridge already installed on them. This allows for easy adjustment and installation of new strings. However, some players prefer not to use this style of bridge because it doesn’t allow for much in terms of sustain or tone manipulation.

The job of the guitar nut is to provide a slot for the strings to pass through. This is pretty important. Without it, you would have no way to get your strings from the tuners down to the bridge.

The most common type of nut, used on most electric guitars, is made from a piece of white plastic called “nylon”. It is an inexpensive and easy material for manufacturers to use. But one drawback of plastic nuts is that they can wear more quickly than their more expensive counterparts.

If you want your guitar to stay in tune better, you can replace the stock plastic nut with a higher quality one made from bone or graphite. Graphite nuts are usually black, while bone nuts are usually ivory-colored or tan.

A lot of people have been asking how to wire up a Tele with a 4-way switch, and/or some kind of “series-split-parallel” switch system. I’ll do my best to help you through it.

The first thing you need to remember is that a Tele is a single coil pickup guitar, and as such has a natural humbucking effect when the 2 pickups are selected together, because the 2 pickup coils are out of phase in this position, which cancels out any hum. So all we’re going to do here is wire up 2 separate volume controls for each pickup coil, and then wire up the switches so that we can choose between:

1) The Neck Pickup Alone

2) The Neck & Bridge Pickups In-Phase

3) The Bridge Pickup Alone

4) The Bridge & Neck Pickups Out-Of-Phase
