Buzz Feiten Tuning System
Silesia Guitars is now an authorized retrofitter of the Buzz Feiten tuning system! Having trouble to be in tune? There might be many reasons for that, but if you have done the obvious- setup, cleaning up nut slots and are still not happy, this might be something for you.

Customer also wanted a bit taller and wider frets, and in order to accommodate the height, the nut also needed to be replaced. In addition, the bridge plate was coming off and needed to be glued down. Click through these pics to see the progress!
