Guitar Techworks Lifts the Curtain…

The best guitar and bass players make it look easy, expressing themselves through their instruments. Yet, like a race car driver relies on his mechanic, musicians rely on the skill and expertise of a professional guitar tech. Historically, only a privileged, informed few knew the nuances of making guitars feel and play as good as the pro’s. In our professional guitar tech seminars, Guitar Techworks lifts the curtain to share our time-tested techniques, tips and tricks for bringing the full potential out of any instrument.

Guitar Techworks grew out of the sweat and sawdust of the most revered guitar shops, working with some of the hardest working pro guitarists in the World. Through the speakers and guests guiding these seminars you will learn what it takes to make any guitar perform harder and better than it ever has before.
