So called "luthier's" sa fb
« on: March 17, 2018, 05:42:35 AM »
One saturday, I removed the pickups on my strat plus deluxe and just got the replacement dimarzio's for it. I was far from a soldering iron so I decided to look around sa FB for someone na pwede mag install, Iam near monumento area and needed my guitar that same day for our church rehearsals...
I saw this MG1 guitar clinic near MCU and I said "Yes" malapit lang, contacted the guy via PM and went to his shop... I had the 1st doubt when he saw the roller nut on my guitar, ang sabi ano'ng technology daw yun... hmmm medyo nag duda ako konti... pero dahil I need the guitar, it outweighed my doubts.. so he soldered, while tending to his sari-sari store..sometimes, sir paki hawak sandali, may bili lang ng yosi, or mag papaload :-) ... cut the story.. nahinang nya yung pickups..nahirapan ibalik yung pickguard dahil sa wire... then testing.. yung neck and bridge napaka nipis ng tunog, while yung middle sobrang lakas.. yun na..sabi ko ok na to kesa pag experimentuhan pa gitara ko..alis ako for rehearsal can't bear the tunog...went to mang max the next day...ayun. mali-mali ang wiring...haay!
sad experience..

Hirap mag take ng risk sa ganyan, dun pa rin ako sa tiwala ako - sir Mike Sison. Referral din ng mga friends kung magtry ng iba.

HAHAHAHAHA yang luthier term kasi gets tossed around hahaha sa luthier talk, I solely recommend going to reputable ones. and ask your very close friends and industry names on who's their best guy.

so far, Mike Sison really takes the cake. both in reputation and outputs.
hahaha ako binibiyak ko muna yung wetpaks para makita kung may yellow thingy hahahaha

^labo nyan kung wiring at simpleng setup lang wag na gagamitin yung luthier na term to describe their job. unless they have built a guitar from the ground up at lagpas singkwenta na ang guaranteed service nila sa mga maintenance ng gitara.

ang tanong kay TS: magkano binayad mo?

Given your situation it was best to go to someone who already knows how to do it but I guess it's not bad to invest on yourself as well. I suggest to try DIY next time.
I don't know any guitar tech/luthier here in UAE so I am forced to teach myself how to do the setup and mods since I have 4 guitars

Agreed. Soldering is useful for so many things outside repairing guitar electronics. It's a handy skill.

Pickup got "out-of-phase" due to wrong wiring. Tried that before when I started out learning how to install a pickup. Learned from it.

As for the "luthier daw", it doesn't make him a lesser person kung nag google for the wiring diagram.  :-D

So much fail.....

Very unprofessional na pinuputol yung trabaho sa harap ng client para tauhan yung ibang business niya.

Obviously there is lack of knowledge in the part of the "luthier" daw. We dont know if there is also a lack of skill dahil nahinang naman...mali nga lang

If luthier talaga yan dapat may tester yan. Tester pa lang alam mo na kagad pano iwire yung pickups kahit anong brand pa yan. Malalaman mo na din kagad kung sira yan or hinde ... kaya maling mali na sabihin niya na baka sira ang pixkups mo....... btw napansin mo ba na may tester siya sa shop/sarisari store niya

Pag nagpapahinang ako ng pickup i study the wirings myself. I make sure na tama ang diagram sa gusto kong wiring.

Don't let a stranger work on your precious guitar... unless nirecommend siya ng kakilala mo.
