Like a child, a guitar must be given a name, cared for, and brought out at bonfires to entertain the relatives. Defend your fretted family with today's Groupon: for $25, you get a standard setup for a six-string acoustic guitar, electric guitar, or bass and a 40-point inspection at Chicago Music Exchange (a $50 value).
With more than 20 years of sound-shredding experience, Chicago Music Exchange meets the needs of veteran axe slingers and newly minted musicians. Expert technicians christen six-strings with a standard setup, restringing an electric, acoustic, or bass guitar and manicuring the minutiae that lives inside. Technicians adjust truss rods and nut height and tighten hardware before cleaning instruments of scuffs garnered during street fights with oboes. Setup includes oiling and cleaning of the fingerboard, as well as a top-to-bottom 40-point inspection. Experts pore over the fingerboard, frets, and body while also inspecting action and electronics. The sound-savvy staff at Chicago Music Exchange will ensure that wires and bridges are secure and that smooth fret ends are configured to channel the spirit of Jimi, Elvis, or Tchaikovsky's black-sheep brother, Thad.
