At Wood Bros. Music, we can take any guitar and make it better.  We can hot-rod your axe to be the best playing, best sounding guitar - specifically tuned and perfected to your needs and dreams.  Our creative team can recommend the best options for upgrading a guitar that has grown stale to you, and are capable perfectionists that are trained and skilled for transforming your guitar from 'basic' to 'incredible'  Some common upgrades are:

-Installation of great new pickups from Seymour Duncan, EMG,

    Fender, Dimarzio, T.V. Jones or other top name brands.

 

-Changing out machines to great locking tuners from Schaller,

   Planet Waves, Fender, Grover...and more

 

-Install special switching to maximize the tone options from your guitar,

   with push pull pots, rotary tone switches, 4-way Tele conversions,

   mini switches, paddle shift switches and more...

 

-Pin bridges on hollow body guitars esp. Gretsch to prevent bridge

   slipping during playing.

 

-Jack's special 'knop.' knob that scoops out the mid's on your guitar to

   make a better fingerpicking tone...

 

-Tremolo stabilizing systems that can 'block' or 'dive-only' your bridge

   to aid with tuning stability.  The trem-el-no can even be turned on and

   off to 'block' only when you are changing tuning... so nice...

 

-Paul install's railroad spikes into banjo fingerboards to aid with capoing
