"Building satisfied players... one Haywire guitar at a time"
Point 1: 4-axis alignment of the guitars neck Each guitars neck is checked and adjusted to be sure it is true and straight to provide a proper alignment on all axis. This step promotes even action and allows for more accurate and easier guitar tuning, playing, and set-up in the following steps.
Point 2: Inspect and lube the guitars tuning gears
Before installing the guitars tuning gears, each one is checked thoroughly. Each tuning gear is adjusted so that there is no play in the mechanism. They are each lubricated to enable smooth and even movement so your guitar will tune accurately.
Point 3: Potting the guitars pickups
We dip the pickups in hot wax to reduce squeal and unwanted guitar feedback.
Point 4: Prep the guitars body
Upon installing the guitars electronic components, great care is taken to ensure that all wires are properly routed, spaced, and grounded to enhance years of trouble-free service with your guitar.
Point 5: Level and polish the frets
This step provides assurance that all of the guitars frets are level, eliminating any possibility of fret buzz due to unevenness.
Point 6: Radius the guitars strings
Most guitar necks have a contour over the top of the neck called the radius. We adjust the strings to make sure the height of each string follows the contour of the guitars neck radius.
Point 7: Adjusting the overall guitar string height and the action
Once we set the contour and radius of the guitars strings, it’s time to adjust the overall height of the strings from the top of the frets to the bottom of the guitars strings.
Point 8: Set the guitars intonation
This step is done twice. The intonation is set two times, with a 24 hour "seat-in" period in between, to allow the guitar to properly re-seat to the new adjustments
