In this video, I’m going to break down the 10 must-have guitar tools every guitar geek should own. Some of them you may already have, while others you’ve just been thinking about getting. Either way, I’ll show you how to use these tools and prevent common mistakes when using these guitar maintenance tools.
In addition to talking about guitar maintenance, I’ll also introduce you to Bernie F., a TAC Family member whose progress has accelerated since he joined TAC.
As always, I’ll close out the show with some acoustic guitar weekly news. This is your chance to get caught up on the biggest headlines, album releases, and sales that are shaking up the industry!
As always, you can catch Acoustic Tuesday at 10 am every Tuesday in these four places:
How about 0000 steel wool to polish the frets (and remove some of the gunk on the fretboard rather than the razor blade)?
I use this also and here is another tip… wrap the steel wool around a magnet to use it and the magnet keeps the metal filings from building up on the guitar.
Rechargeable electric screwdriver and the Music Nomad string winder drill bit. Much better than manual winders.
Thanks for the cool tool tips, Tony! I have many of these items in my toolkit, however I discovered my Ibanez guitar doesn’t have a visible truss rod to adjust. Go figure. I’ve had it for about a year or so and never noticed. I may be a quiet guitar geek in the TAC community, but I watch you and play every day.
Tony, I have looked everywhere I can or know about to find background music for songs I want to play like Jukebox In MY mind by Alabama, etc. Do you know where I can purchased said background music for many songs please?
I’m not sure if this is something I would recommend for everyone, it has the potential to be unstable, but for me it works well. I needed a bench for minor repairs and maintenance for my guitarsenal but I have extremely limited space and I had an idea. I went to a local thrift store and picked up an ironing board for $5, made a cotton flannel cover for it, and made a neck cradle I can strap down to it. When I am done with it, I can fold it up and stand it in the corner of my closet.
Gorgomyte works great in cleaning and oiling the fretboard as well as polishing the frets. It’s a lot less messy than steelwool too.
Tony another good show Ive watched everyone so far, so when are you going to release an album?
So happy you mentioned Charley Pride. He has been a part of my life since back in the late ’60s. I have many of his albums and want to get more. I was privileged to see him in concert in Seattle one year. So sad that he passed away, but what a legacy he left. Truly one of the greats. 🙂
About 18 months ago (give or take a couple of months) you reviewed a guitar “cradle” on an Acoustic Tuesday Episode. I have tried to find that review in vain.
Do you have any recollection of this? Can you reply with the episode #?
