    TUNING HACK ALERT!
So my #dangelicoexss has been giving me some tuning issues. Wanted to use it today on a session. Figured it was from the 3x3 tuniners...causing an angle at the nut. I recently heard about the #stringbutler. Before I ordered one, I figured I could wrap some plastic ties around the 2 pairs of strings to cause a straight path thru the nut. Yup. It works. Now do I order the string butler for 50 bucks or use these ties that cost pennies? Lol. Yeah...the butler looks prettier....but this is a great hack. Got me through the session. And keeps my punk NY attitude alive! I love this guitar!!! And yes...I'll be ordering the string butler. If it's good enough for @philx1111 ...

    Car wheels on a gravel road 
First time playing with the band! There's still so much to learn about playing with a band and being on stage. I am so grateful for this experience. Mandy is an awesome leader and isn't afraid to fix things until they are right. #tuningproblems oops😂 I just love all these women. They are so supportive and helpful. ♥️

    The guitar tech did his best but the general feeling is you can't polish a turd! Love the looks and tone of this guitar but it has the worst tremolo system I've ever used. My first plan was to put a stop tail bridge on it but that requires drilling. So instead I've bunged up the original hole where the spring goes and will fix on a bigsby at some point. Until then I've screwed on the old nut...

    Yesterday was crazy .. I think we flashed 5 trucks in total.  But this one stood out. 2010 6.0 . Client complained of poor running , poor mileage , etc.  So it was booked in for tuning.  He said it kept throwing a check engine light for lean codes.  Ok .... first things first ... let's check the trims.  Woah !! +25% ! Yea we got a problem.  So we ask the client if he wants us to look into it , as there is no point in tuning it if it runs poor.  And here is what we found. MAF sensor backwards , electrical tape to seal an ill-fitting coupler ,dryer vent adapter for MAF to intake tube , foam ear plug to seal PCV intake end , wrong routing on catch can, MAF wiring was hacked.  After this was all fixed , THEN we tuned the truck.  And it was running perfect.  These are the little things that surprise us almost daily and we need to be aware of prior to even the simplest tune. #Hptuners #albertachev #tuningproblems #gmc

    I have some time to work on my own gear and projects, so I thought I'd share my view of products I'm testing. First off is The String Butler. This device routes the strings of a guitar with 3 per side tuners with a straighter path through the nut than going off in an angle to the tuner. The idea is to stop the strings from binding and causing all kinds of tuning problems. Not to mention strings going out of tune just by bending a note. Yes I used my Gibson Les Paul that I've had a love hate relationship with. No drilling or screws needed to mount it. It uses the nuts of the two E string tuners to mount. Plastic washers under the plate prevent scratching the headstock. If your tuners have push in bushings you will have to screw the plate to the headstock. The String Butler is nothing short of amazing. I was skeptical at first, but my guitar stays in tune better than ever. Bending strings, changing to a drop D tuning and back again with no problems. I wish I had this years ago. I probably would still have many more of my old Gibson guitars. #thestringbutler #tuningproblems #rockandroll #modgarage
