How to love your guitar longer

A guitar will last you at least a lifetime. And maybe even outlive you. That is, if you love it. For most of us the reality is that we fall in love with a new guitar. And then we love that one. Until we fall in love again…. We all know this feeling, the excitement of “new guitar day”. And it is a lot of fun. Getting inspired by an artist you saw perform and who had this awesome sound. Searching on Youtube for that guitar. Getting distracted by other guitars that appears on your screen and deep diving into those. Writing down the specs of you new dream guitar. Visiting stores online and browsing their catalog. Figuring out how we are going to finance it and thinking about how to sell the idea of yet another guitar it to your other half. Been there? So, it is fair to say that a guitar may physically last you a lifetime, it probably will not last that long in your collection. Unless…

Try not to fall out of love

If you take good care of your guitar it will play better, sound better and look better. Keep it at fairly constant temperature and humidity. Change the strings regularly. Have it checked and setup by a professional once a year or maybe do it yourself, if you are able.

Fix it when needed

A guitar may last a long time, but occasionally it will need a repair. It might have crackling tone pots or string buzz, the playability is now what it used to be. The good news is that most issues can be fixed at a fairly low cost.

Is my guitar worth the cost of the repair or upgrade?

Well, there are two ways to answer this question. If you look at it from an economical point of view there are a few points to be made. First of all your guitar will in most cases not be worth more because of the repairs or upgrades. In case of the repairs that is obvious, if you sell the guitar your buyer will expect a function instrument. The fact that it is actually function will not increase its value. With upgrades more often than not the guitar will also not increase in value. It is easier to sell the guitar in its original state then with the upgrades as many buyers will be unsure of what to expect of the upgraded and would rather trust the manufactures original specs. So we always advise clients to hold on to the replaced parts so they have the option of going back to the original. And then sell the guitar in its original state and the upgrade parts seperately. If you want to know if a repair or upgrade makes sense from an economical stand point, do ask your trusted guitar retailer what he thinks. They will have a pretty good understanding of the market value of your planned upgrade. But fortunately, it is not all about economics. If you are not planning to sell your guitar anytime soon but intend to hold on to it, then all that matters is whether you think it is worth it.

Is my guitar worth the cost of the repair or upgrade?

We believe every guitar needs attention and is worth some love. But if you arn’t sure, get in touch so we can give you some advice.
