We know it’s tough to pay bills and exist at the moment and we don’t believe anyone who isn’t Filthy Rich doesn’t feel the pinch of inflation. Let’s hope that wages raise to ease the pain of insane rates of inflation asap…
The Wet Season has truly arrived here in the Far North of Queensland and it is normal for Musical Instruments to Swell Up, Buzz, Belly and Warp with all the moisture available in the current weather patterns! We can setup the Instrument for Wet Season but once the Winter arrives you may find it may need another Setup due to changing humidity levels throughout the Year.
It is not uncommon for Acoustic and Electric Instrument Electronics to play up/fail with the current weather also. We offer an Electronics Cleanout Service but more commonly preamps fail up here in the Far North due to Humidity/Corrosion/ Salt Air and Battery Acid Seepage etc. It is reasonable to expect to replace Preamps more often in the Tropics. Otherwise your onboard electronics will ultimately be unreliable even after replacing parts or components.
As always we endeavour to complete work on your Instrument as we run down the que after the Instrument has been dropped off at our Workshop. That can be 2- 5 Working Days depending on current workloads. We will always give a Completeion Estimate when gear is being dropped off. We do not offer same day Service (rushjobs) under any circumstances.
Check out the Pictures of what’s been happening in the Workshop over the last couple of months!
Thanks for reading and Happy New Year from Reuben’s Guitar Repairs.
