New strings on this acoustic rental guitar & a small neck adjustment to lower the action and now it plays and sounds great!

After picking up one of our rental guitars from one of the most popular Key West resorts on my way home from our family music store, Island Guitar (home of the Bone Island Music Crew) I decided to give this baby a little attention and some periodic love and affection.

So I headed to my work bench and took the old strings off. I cleaned then conditioned the fretboard before putting on the new strings. (It’s much easier and you’ll do a much better job while the strings are off!)

Then I gave the entire guitar a good cleaning and polish front and back.

Now it sounds so much better with the new strings it’s unbelievable. Dead strings can really kill a guitar’s tone, sustain, and intonation. Dead strings sound BAD. Not only playing hours count towards a string’s death – but also time alone makes them die. Strings have a shelf life once strung. Period.

KIds Ukulele Summer Camp Key West 2017 for Kids 4-9

Kids Ukulele Summer Camp 2017 is at the Key West Tropical Forest & Botanical Garden located at 5210 College Rd, Key West, FL 33040 on Stock Island.  

We are excited to be planning the best music summer camp experience ever for 2017!  

By popular demand, everyone will focus on the ukulele as the main camp instrument but we will explore electric and acoustic guitar, bass, keyboards, drums and steel pans.  We encourage each child to try each instrument before spending all of their time with one. 

Our goal is to provide a professional musical environment through special tools, equipment, experience, knowledge and live examples, performances and guest speakers, where guided hands on experiences can be created along side and along with with peers in their age group, where that they can discover new likes and hidden talents while building a better more meaningful summer camp experience. 

Ages 4-9  Monday July 24th to Friday July 28th 8AM to NOON.

Camp admission is $200 for first child and $150 per sibling
