One of the most exciting and challenging aspects of playing steel are the endless ways you can approach the instrumant through tuning relations and copedents. We set up steels for players with a wide variety of preferences and are familiar with the most commonly used and the more unconventional. Whether you need a few fine adjustments or you would like to try that new copendent with a different raise or lower, we provide a meticulous set up service.
We have a comprehensive approach to restorations. Many times it begins with taking the instrument completely apart and rebuilding. Along the way, cleaning, buffing and polishing parts until they are like new. replacing any worn parts and reassembling with a setup that will make the guitar easier to maintain and play.
Jim Flynn is a master problem solver and his shop has been stocking NOS parts and components from most popular steels over the years. We also custom manufacture many replacement parts. Because modern pedal steel guitars have so many moving parts, there are numerous operations that suffer from neglect and can cause you problems due to wear and tear, bad alignment, dirt, linkage binding or slack.
