"It'll probably be until the weekend before i get to play these guitars as much as i want to, but i can already tell you that the money spent on the set up for my acrylic is possibly the best $60 I've ever spent. i've had that guitar for years now, and pretty much never played it 'cause it was so terrible. It just sat in the corner for looks, and I hated that that's all it was good for. It's awesome beyond words that it's now actually a viable option when i want to play. And again, super excited to get a few hours on that tom delonge strat this weekend as well. I gotta tell you THE reason i bought that explorer was playability. and sure it's a great guitar, but having my eyes opened to how important proper action is, and that i can get that kind of low smooth action on a guitar a quarter of that price, i'll almost certainly be selling it off. it is incredible how much a proper set up matters. and honestly it's hard to get over the fact that my acrylic guitar is giving me the same feeling as the first time i played my explorer in the store. i never dreamed that guitar would play that well. no chance. it's so nice. Anyway, if i EVER need anything guitar related, any future guitars i own, they're getting set up by you. and i will be referring my friends and everyone i know that plays guitar in this area as strongly as i can about the importance of a professional set up, and how knowledgeable, informative, and talented you are in that area. thanks again. (NEXT DAY:) Hey Morgan. The difference on the acrylic is incredible. I went back and forth with songs with my acrylic and my explorer last night for almost 2 hours and the more playable more comfortable of the 2 is very clearly the acrylic. Again, it is the coolest thing ever that a guitar I made myself from scratch is now my best playing guitar." - tom w.
"I recently found a vintage Silvertone guitar online-- the very same model I owned and played in garage bands in my teens. They're quite rare; this instrument is 42 years old! I wanted to be sure it was in absolutely optimum shape. The vibe I got from Morgan as I described my concerns to him made me feel instantly comfortable. 30 years of musicianship and technical acumen from a player and craftsman who'll treat your instrument like one of his own? That's what I want, exactly! Morgan gave it a thorough once-over, set it up, cleaned and re-strung it, made a couple of nearly invisible modifications (adding a set of Strap-Loks, too) and I had the guitar of my youth once more! I am completely delighted with his work, his range of knowledge, and his obvious enthusiasm for what he does, and I recommend him to you unreservedly. He's getting all *my* future business!"--Jef H
"I love my GMPElite guitar mostly because of the action. The sound is great, but it is a typical dual humbucker sound - nice and fat, sweet. I've been lusting after a Strat or Tele for a change of pace - the single coil pick up sound. Morgan suggested coil splitting the humbuckers and using push- pull pots to control both pickups in either humbucker or single coil mode. Bottom line was selectable single coil sound without changing the appearance, no major surgery, and modest cost. I am happy. The guitar was done on time and works great!"- D. Miller
"Thanks for the excellent work on my basses! They're both DREAMY now, the upright actually plays better now than when I bought it!! You got them done quickly and at a great price...I will highly recommend your services!!"

"Morgan, your handy work with the nut on my Warmoth neck is absolutely professional. My Line 6 Variax never sounded better. Thanks for the quick turn! It's working out great!"
"My band is playing almost every weekend lately, and I mostly use my trusty white Strat with the Barden pickups on stage, this is the guitar that you set up for me. Still plays and sounds like a dream! - Peter B, Badlands
I love the job you did on both guitars. I was really surprised at how a big a difference the tone caps made. Every note just pops soo much more now and the setup is very versatile and suits my playing style well. The resonator is much more playable now and sounds sweet. Thanks again. - James
