Don't let your Martin's setup hinder you from being the musician you know you can be.
The information in The Unauthorized Guide to Setup Your Martin DVD equips you to identify and correct most issues of string buzz, action, and intonation affecting your Martin guitar.
Your setup is the key to achieving better and faster chops, more sustain, fuller tone, greater comfort, and greater personal satisfaction with your Martin guitar.
You can have your guitar tech perform your setups for you, but in reality one setup does not fit all. This is because of differences in playing style, string choices, string gauges, personal preferences, and more.
Learning how to perform a basic setup on your Martin guitar pays you back many times over. Even if you continue to use your guitar tech, understanding these principles helps you to better communicate your needs and desires. That is exactly what this DVD does for you.
This instructional DVD is packed with tons of foundational information. The first half covers the what and why. What is a truss rod and why is it important? What are your choices in strings and why they are different? What is intonation and why it will never be perfect? The Unauthorized Guide to Setup Your Martin seeks to answer these questions and more.
The second part of this Great Nutshell Productions DVD takes you step-by-step through a basic setup of your Martin guitar. From nut and bridge adjustment to the final intonation, this DVD shows you that most any Martin guitar plays even better when it's setup just for you, by you.
