Sketchy Setups available now

Sketchy Setups Launches

I'm massively proud and excited to announce the new series of Sketchy Setups guides is now available. This series contains four guides, each focussed on a particular instrument type. 

  • #1: The Fender Stratocaster
  • #2: The Fender Telecaster
  • #3: The Gibson Les Paul, SG, 335, etc.
  • #4: The Fender Precision and Jazz Bass

Imagine your best friend was a setup guru…

And wrote a book just for you…

Sketchy Setups are friendly and straightforward guides to getting your guitar or bass playing its best. No need to wade through massive books, trying to find the relevant parts for your guitar. No trying to make sense of the manufacturer's vague instructions. No searching for the pearls among millions of forum posts.

Perfect if you want a great playing instrument without having to take a degree in Advanced Guitary Stuff.

Just great guitar and bass setup. Easy-peasy.


Sketchy Setups is a bit different to other setup guides. For a start, you can just get the information you want — just the info for your instrument. Why read about Gibson tailpieces when you're setting up a Jazz Bass?

And Sketchy Setups is completely hand-drawn. Even though these are digital guides, each page began as paper, pencil, and ink. This makes it easier to illustrate things that would be difficult in photographs and keeps everything nice and easy-going. Setups don't have to be chores. 


Sketchy Setups are available to buy right now. Each guide costs $5 or you can buy a bundle of all four for $15. There is a heap more information, some page-samples, and some frequently asked questions on the Sketchy Setups page. Check it out



I don't often ask for shares but it'd be massively fantastic and incredibly helpful if you could tell your friends about Sketchy Setups.
