Fret MD has teamed up with Al Markasky, a master luthier and shop owner with over thirty years of experience to produce what could be the definitive video on basic, but essential Electric Guitar and Bass setup and maintenance.

As any serious musician knows, proper setup and maintenance of an electric guitar or bass is like changing the oil in your car. If you don't do it, you won't like the results. Many professional players have their instruments professionally setup twice a year or more; and with the average setup costing from $75 to $100 the costs can add up.

Of course, you can do a setup yourself to save money, but you might not know all the techniques or in which order to do them. You might not know that doing setup steps in the wrong order could do more harm than good to your instrument and you might not know anyone with over thirty years of experience setting up electric guitars and basses who can help you. With Fret MD: Electric Guitar and Bass Setup and Maintenance with Al Markasky you'll learn the techniques you need to know in order to get the very best sound and feel out of your instrument possible. This expertly produced one of a kind DVD will allow you to tap into the knowledge of an experienced and renowned luthier who has repaired, literally thousands of instruments in his career. The video is $29.95 on Amazon.com or $24.95 on createspace.com (with fretmd.com discount code) and can be used repeatedly as a reference for doing setups anytime you need it.
