In this week's installment of the Guitar Geek "Tweak of the Week" Chris unwraps the mystery behind the controls on our favorite Fender and Gretsch guitars.  Learn about the unique switching configuration of the Gretsch Pro-Line models, specifically the master volume and preset tone switch on a G6118T Anniversary model.  Learn about the Squier Vintage Modified Jaguar and Mustang and what all those slide switches actually do.  Take a peek at a Fender Deluxe Stratocaster with its N3 noiseless pickups and S-1 switching for double the tonal possibilities of a standard Strat.  All questions and comments are welcomed here at Briggs Music.

Briggs Music Guitar Geek Tweak of the Week #11.  Chris demonstrates the simple procedure of maintaining proper conditioning of a rosewood fingerboard on your stringed instrument.  Using a Guild CE100D Capri hollow body electric, a few drops of Dunlop 65 lemon oil, and some inexpensive supplies easily obtained at any hardware store, the Guitar Geek explains this often-overlooked step in your guitar setup routine. Also in this Tweak blog, notice how Chris uses blue painter's tape to mark the positioning of the floating bridge before removing the strings.  In doing so, proper intonation of the guitar is made much easier after re-stringing.  The Guild CE100D Capri On Sale Here!

MANUFACTURER'S NOTE:  Lemon Oil is recommended for unfinished rosewood and ebony fingerboards only.  Maple and padouk fingerboards with glossy finishes do not require oiling and can be damaged by oils and solvents.  For more questions, feel free to comment below or visit our website at http://www.Briggs-Music.com
