    Good day.

    My acoustic guitar has a fret or 2 that has worn out the paat few years. Is there ways to fix that? It mostly effects the commen D chord but as worship leaders we need it a lot.

    Hi Francois

    I got an Washburn D 10 B (not sure about the B) from a pawn shop ( I know,, I know) for Christmas, tried to adjust the neck just a little but the buzz still around on the high notes, can I bring it in for a quote. I wanted a guitar with a great action and intonation.

      Unfortunately I don’t do guitar setups anymore.

      You can take it to your nearest guitar shop like Music Mate or Music Connection in Randburg or you can ask on http://www.guitarforum.co.za.
