Brian May and the Zero Fret Controversy

Brian May and the Zero Fret Controversy

After the last article on fret wear, I was surprised to get some responses refuting my statement that a zero fret would (all things being equal) wear more quickly than other frets. 

It seems that Brian May is partly to blame for this. Well, not quite. Check it out…

Thank you

It’s been something of a topsy-turvy few weeks for me and that’s had an impact on things at Haze Guitars. Sorry about that. 

If you’ve been good enough to accommodate me and reschedule appointments, thank you so much for your patience and understanding. And, if I’ve neglected to get back to anyone recently, I’m sorry and I’ll do my best to rectify that as things get back on an even keel around here. 

Thanks for your trust

As is (rightfully) customary for me at this time of year, I want to say a massive thank you to everyone who’s trusted me with their precious instruments over the last year. I know what that means and I really appreciate it. I say it every year, and I mean it every year, thank you. Thank you very much. 

Haze Guitars will be closed until January 3rd, 2018 and I’m looking forward to getting back to working on some guitars. 

Happy Christmas to you all. I’ll see you next year and, until then, find someone you care about and give them a hug.

How a visit to Haze Guitars works

How a visit to Haze Guitars works

Repair appointments here at Haze Guitars work a little differently than most other places. 

The very short story is: 

  • Book an appointment
  • Drop your instrument at your appointment time. 
  • Collect your instrument in a day, or maybe two.

If you want, you can stop reading here. 

However, for a little more information and context on the process, you might find the following useful.

Want some recommendations for choosing a pickup?

Obviously, as someone who installs pickups regularly, I often get asked for some recommendations. Players are considering an upgrade or swap and will hit me up for some advice on the tone of this or that pickup, or whether a particular pickup will suit the style they're going for. You know the sort of thing.
