    Fairclough Acoustic Star 
This belongs to John who wanted this finely tuning to get the frets levelled and the intonation sorted.

I checked it over with a fret rocker and there were unlevel frets all along the neck. There was plenty of fall-away in fret height after the 12th fret, so I opted to set the neck straight with the truss rod and then level 1 -12, the truss rod having little to no affect on the neck past the body joint anyway.

I removed the nut to carry out the fret level.  The recrown and polish was fairly straightforward after this.

It arrived missing a bridge pin, so a full new set in ebony was ordered. When it came time to restring they were a little oversized for the bridge holes, so I just eased them open a little more with a tapered reamer.  Fit lovely now.

So with neck relief set, the action was already nice, so no saddle shaving required today 😊. It’s got a lovely tone to it and I believe John is using it to record with once he gets hold of it again......I’m sure he’ll be over the moon at the result 🤘

    DIY - Gibson ABR bridge retaining wire with an old wound guitar string. Use the natural curve of the string to push the saddles.

DIY - Alambre de retencion de las selletas de un puente Gibson ABR con una cuerda entorchada. La curva natural de la cuerda hacia abajo, para empujar las selletas.

    Yamaha Pacifica PA1611MS Mike Stern Signature. Aquí un fan de las guitarras Yamaha hechas en Japón, por su Standard de calidad, construcción impecable, atención al detalle, pero sobre todo por su impresionante sonido! Ejemplo de eso es esta Mike Stern, que toma el clásico estilo Telecaster refinando algunos detalles y customizándola a las specs del Maestro. El modelo 1611 es la última versión de este Signature, que ahora tiene un proceso de secado en las maderas llamado IRA (Initial Response Aceleration) el resultado es una mejor resonancia en el cuerpo en menor tiempo de lo que tardaría normalmente un instrumento nuevo.  Cuerpo de Swamp Ash, brazo de una sola pieza de maple y cargada con Seymour Duncan '59 y Hot Rails en el bridge, esta guitarra bien podría ser la Signature de un guitarrista de rock o metal. Si, una pastilla high output, se puede usar para tocar Jazz, así lo hace el Maestro Mike Stern y próximamente veremos cómo suena en todos los estilos que domina el Maestro @jeanpaulbideau .

    Took this last night before the last show of the tour. I walk by it everyday like it’s normal..but I know it’s not. So many @prsguitars guitars to make this happen every night & they don’t tune, set up, clean & fix themselves...Feeling very blessed and grateful to be out here doing this music thing...and doing it with some of the best human beings on the planet. A MASSIVE thanks to our amazing dude @birdjerm (Jeremy “Frosty” Frost) for always going above and beyond. Not just for us, but for everyone..every single day! Love you buddy! You are one of a kind. AWW YEAH! I KNOW!!

    Oh - and I set this up too. Wow. Sure plays and sounds better after a fret level and crowning, new nut, and bridge tweak. Definitely the most modern thing my bench has seen in a long long time. The pick up supposedly sounds amazing but I don’t have an amp...
