Alright, I know it's been quite a while since I've posted, and I basically went dark for a bit.
I've finally finished up my degree and have a 'real' job, and moved out of Indy for the time being, however, I am still available for setups and repairs, and have been doing pickups and drop offs for customers in the downtown Indy area at no additional cost!
You'll find all the service information in the new Services section!

I'm playing with Current Situation tonight at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway American Legion Post 500! We take the stage at 9, so come out and say hi!


One month of offering Reville guitars for sale and 4 have been purchased! Thank you all so much for the support and ideas for the future. I know that Reville has appreciated the input and I've appreciated talking with so many of you about what you'd like to see in the future!


Added today is the link to my page, where you can find all of the guitars shown here and purchase them!
Thank you so much for all of your support!


4 new Reville models coming at you before New Year's!


Two guitars sold so far!


Huge news! Precision Setups is now a Revv (soon to be Reville) Guitars dealer! This is a drop-ship business model, and I'll be posting pictures of different offered models and pricing this weekend!


Some big news coming down the pipeline soon!
Stay tuned for details!


Thank you so much to everyone who came out to the Indiana Guitar Show yesterday and stopped by and talked with my wife and I! It was fantastic meeting everyone, getting to talk shop with some of you, and meeting the other vendors!



Thank you all so much for the support! 100 likes! Hopefully after this weekend I can make it over 200!


Installed a set of Buddha Pickups P90's today in a Gibson LP.
Install went as smooth as silk.
Pickups were custom wound, Alnico 2 magnets, windings designed to match a particular British pickup maker's spec, and ended up saving the customer around $80 per pickup!

Since the Gibson had 500k pots and a .022uf cap, chances are we'll need to drop a set of 300k pots in with the .033uf cap I put in to tame the bridge pickup, but man do they sound fantastic!


Back from vacation this week! Time to finish up a 120th anniversary LP.


So, first set of Buddha's are in! Working on homework and studying for my finals which are next week, then will get them installed. Probably will get them in on Monday, hopefully!
I'm also going to try to do before/after pics and sound clips of the Gretsch.
I can officially say that I've never been this excited about doing work before!


Anyone looking for new pickups?
Let me know what you're looking for, and I will coordinate with Tim at Buddha Pickups and see what we can get cooked up for your guitar! He hand-winds to whatever specifications and tone you're looking for, and has incredible quality.
Humbucker sets run around $120 + shipping, which is cheaper than most Duncan pickups!
Have the shipped to me, and I'll do the install for $20 if we use the existing electronics. That's $146 (shipping is usually around $6) for a set of custom wound, hand-made humbuckers INSTALLED!


So close to 100 likes! Thank you all so much!
Still would love to see more customers through the shop! Please pass the word on to any guitar or bass players you know, or even friends that don't play and might know some musicians! As I've heard from more than one satisfied customer, my rates are unreal and the quality is outstanding!
Don't believe me? Message me for a quote, take a look at the work I've done and posted on here, and bring your instrument by for a quick setup. For hardtail guitars and basses, a setup is $20 plus the cost of strings, and that includes a front to back, top to bottom cleaning, polishing, and inspection. Plus, I tighten anything that's loose, and get the action down as low as possible.


Out of curiousity, if I could offer J and P style basses, with a choice of pickup route (MM, J, P, and most combinations of the above), a handful of finish choices (Trans green, blue, purple, or 2 tone sunburst (Ash body); quilted cherryburst or coral blue burst (Mahogany body); solid black, daphne blue, or surf green (Alder body), maple or rosewood fretboard options in P or J necks, as well as choice of hardware color, would anyone be interested?

Prices would start at $500 (Passive J/J, single P, or single MM), and go up from there depending on options and upgrades.

Been working on my 5 string that I picked up on craigslist. Flat-spotted fret ends in several spots, which is making crowning the frets a pain. Probably going to end up leveling the neck a 2nd time to make sure the first crowning didn't over do it.


Got my personal new bass prepped for when parts come in for the wiring.
Original preamp was wired Volume/Blend/Bass/Mid/Treble w/ an active/passive switch. I ordered a linear 25k volume push/pull pot to combine the active/passive switch and volume k**b. Where the original active/passive switch went, I'm putting a 3-way on-on-on switch to alternate the MM pickup between split/series/parallel.

And these are just some of the fun things I could do with YOUR instrument!


Waiting for new customers, trying to think of avenues for advertising that would actually bring in new customers.


Not much changed on the Masterbuilt, just strings, truss rod adjustment, cleaned and tuned. Also filed down the edges of the nut, as they were sharp enough to break the skin.


Potential future designs. Input?


The new bridge and nut are in for the Les Paul Jr on the bench. Strings are off and lemon oil is saturating the fretboard (it was really dry). Will take before and after pics, though I forgot to take a picture of the fretboard first.



Steadily growing! Thanks for all the likes so far!


57 likes! Wow! So excited to keep this growing and earn new customers' business!


1 away from 50!


Price list updated! New, lower prices for guitarists! $25 setups for hardtail, 6-string guitars and $35 setups for bigsby, floyd, trem, 6-string guitars!

New prices are thanks to Sweetwater Music getting me better prices for strings!


Two basses finished up today.
Bass one had new pickups, wiring harness, and bridge installed.
Bass two had a new nut, new screws, and some electrical repair done.


Just ordered a replacement nut for a customer's brand-new-to-him bass. My how I love the 2 day shipping of Amazon Prime.
