Keith Holland of Keith Holland Guitars in Los Gatos California continues his talk on custom guitars.

First he show us an Aged New Stock guitars. This guitar looks like it’s been on the road for a long time — but it’s really new. Keith is the Michellango of guitars and he artfully ages the guitars so it looks like a comfortable old friend (and plays like one too).

Then we see a new guitar with a beautiful black body with highlighted white grain. Then he shows us a real custom, a semi-hollow solid body guitar. So if you are shopping for a custom guitar, try out these samples Keith’s wall.

Keith Holland of Keith Holand Guitars in Los Gatos California discusses things to keep in mind when considering a getting a custom guitar. First and formost is the body shape. Do you want a Stratocaster type 3 pickup or a Telecaster two pickup guitar.

Then there are necks to choose from — from fret board to neck material. Keith has standard tuners and tail pieces but you can certainly order different ones.

After filming this, I wanted to order my own Keith Holland Guitar :-)

Part 1

Part 2

Keith Holland from Keith Holland Guitars and Guitar Hospital shows us 3 different Tele bridges, some vintage, some not so vintage. But since the bridge is one of three places where strings touch the guitar, it pays to understand what works best for your guitar. Note that the Tele bridge is somewhat simpler than a tremelo Strat Bridge.

Part 2 shows a close up look.

Jack Van Breen continues changing the strings on a Fender Strat with a floating tremelo. He then shows how to setup the tremelo action. Pretty easy. Then he sets the intonation with a quick neck adjustment.

Jack Van Breen from Guitar Showcase changes strings on a Fender Stratocaster with a floating Tremelo. This guitar is on of Jack’s and it’s a beautiful white Fender Custom Shop Strat. With a floating tremelo, you have to tune the strings and then tune them about 2 more times. Then you are good to go.
