PROFESSIONAL QUALITY GUITAR REPAIRS & MAINTENANCE

perth’s most trusted repairer of your precious instruments

In addition to specialising in bespoke handcrafted guitars, Betta Guitars in Perth also provide professional quality guitar repairs on your existing instrument. Wood breathes, it moves, it rises, dips and settles. It is hydroscopic, absorbing and losing moisture from the air in differing atmospheric conditions. It is under constant string tension. Fretbuzz can occur if the frets are uneven or loose from not having been seated properly or never having a fretdress. Unfortunately it can be like this straight out of the manufacturers box. A rise in the tongue  where  the fretboard meets the body can cause the note to choke off  in the upper frets. Dents and divets in frets from playing cause fret buzz and poor intonation. These conditions can be fixed. The choice is yours whether you wish to fix them now or modify the specifications and live with a slightly reduced playability. To further illustrate, if your guitar needed a fretdress but you couldn’t afford it right now, an increase in string height can overcome a fret buzz if you’re willing to live with a slightly higher action.

Factory made guitars are made to pre-determined specifications regardless of the qualities of the individual pieces of wood, they are therefore less responsive. Luthier’s build each guitar to the potential of each piece of wood and have far greater impact in bringing out that potential than a factory assembly line worker ever could. Phone for an appointment with Ray Crotty at his personalised home-based studio in the Perth metro area, and experience the difference in sound and resonance that a handcrafted guitar delivers
