I am a 42 year veteran of the music business!I buy guitars and refurbish them to make them correct, customize them to my liking, I can't always afford "the new price"!! I also repair and refurbish for fellow musicians in my area!!! Seismic Music offers premium parts for a budget price and you don't have to wait for the music store to "get up an order " or wait for them to get your parts when they feel like it!! You order from Seismic, and they are at your doorstep within a few days!!!
