I have been out of action gig wise for so long, I can't recall the last one before pandemic retirement. My bassist friend is coming out from Idaho in August and I need to get back in fighting trim. It also occurred to me that my guitars may not be in proper trim, either. For anyone who has had their axe in the case for more than 3 months, give 'em a little love. First dust 'em off with a soft brush. Give the strings, fretboard and neck a shot of FingerEase, follow the directions.(no it won't hurt nitro, poly or oil finishes.)Change crusty or dented strings, the whole set as needed. If an electric with accessible pots and switches, give 'em a shot of compressed air.(Don't shake the can) Tune up and check out you setup by playing from open to the last fret to check for buzzes and too high action. Check intonation, then plug in and boogie, chillen!
