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.

Ukulele Camp 2018 for Kids AGES 5-11 July 16-20 8am-noon daily. Sponsored by Island Guitar Music lessons ,sales, service & rental shop in Key West www.ukulelecamp.com

Ukulele Camp 2018 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 2018!

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 every child to try several different instruments before spending all of their time with one.

Our goal is to provide a professional musical learning environment through special tools, equipment, experience, knowledge, live examples, performances and guest speakers. These guided hands-on experiences help campers discover new likes and hidden talents while building the best summer camp experience ever.
