Murphy’s Guitars Guitar Maintenance Workshop
It seems like at least once a week someone comes into the store and says, “why don’t you guys do a guitar maintenance workshop?” Well, here goes nothing. Perhaps the most requested workshop we’ve ever done, for our 11th anniversary Murphy’s Guitars is hosting a Guitar Maintenance Workshop sponsored by D’addario and co.
What will the workshop cover?
We’ll cover everything a working musician needs to keep their guitar in good playing condition
- Restringing your guitar (multiple different methods, and how to do it fast in a pinch)
- How to do a basic setup on your guitar, and how to read factory setup specs
- Electric (and acoustic) guitar intonation
- Basic care and maintenance ranging from which cleaning products to use, how to manage your humidity, and tons of other things you might not have known about keeping your guitar in top playing condition
The workshop will largely be a lecture format with demonstartions, if you’d like to bring a guitar for demonstration you are welcome to do that, and we will try to make the workshop as “hands-on” as possibly offering people the opportunity to try a few techniques, look at measurements up close, etc.
Who is teaching it?
The workshop will be taught by Aaron Jorgensen. Aaron is the Manager and head of repairs at Murphy’s Guitars. He has been doing guitar maintenance and repairs since 2010, and recently completed the repairs course (which also featured a foucs on setups and maintenance) through the American School of Lutherie in Portland, Oregon. Aaron builds guitars, and performs on a guitar he himself made in his spare time.
How do I sign up?
This workshop will likely fill up fast, so sign up sooner rather than later. You can sign up in store at Murphy’s Guitars (133. North Main Street, Bountiful, UT), or by calling 801-298-4777
How much does it cost?
The cost of the workshop is only $10, but is free to Murphy’s All Access Pass holders. Attendees will have the opportunity to ender to win cool prizes such as humidifiers, care products, and two lucky winners will go home with D’addario’s new Instrument Care Kit, or Guitar Maintenance Kit.
