Professional Guitar Repair Items

What guitar maintenance should I leave to the professionals? 

Even professionals that have played for decades require the professional services of a dedicated, committed, and passionate Guitar Technologist to service their precious “children”.

Every touring band, whether a rising star band or an arena band has someone with the dedicated responsibility of ensuring that all the stringed instruments will perform as needed for every show.
