​​​​Electric Guitar Set-up


     Antonizing on Electric Instruments is the process of having Anton's Musical Instrument Repair, set your guitar up properly. On Electric guitars this process includes adjusting the nut for correct height on each slot, truss rod adjusted to correct relief, and the bridge saddles adjusted to create the absolute best action and playability. Intonation is also dialed in correct.  Intonation on most electric guitars and basses can be very accurate and is included.  New strings are installed and the fingerboard and bridge oiled, tuning machines tightened. If other problems are found ie.(a high fret or two) the customer will be contacted and options discussed. Customer can either supply their own strings or from my stock.  Any parts and materials including strings, frets, nut, saddle, are in addition to price quoted.  Shipping is not included.

The term "Antonize" or "Antonization" is a phrase. . . our customers made up.
We heard it as customers brought their instruments to be Antonized.  Word spread of the newly coined phrase and customers shared by word of mouth how well pleased they were with Anton's set-ups and new customers called to get the "Antonization" Process on their stringed instruments. 

Word of mouth has been our best advertisement. 

Thank you customers! 

Fret Level and Crown

The process of properly leveling the frets, removing any string wear and making sure the frets are all the same height. Then each fret is crowned (the edges are rolled) so the strings ring clear when played. They are then polished to mirror finish so when playing, the strings move freely as they are fretted and bends made. This process is performed on instruments that are well played and worn but also on new instruments.  Most manufacturers do not spend a significant amount of time on this process resulting in new instruments only playing okay.  Couple a fret level with the Antonizing process and it's like enhancing a Chevy to perform like a Porsche.
