Snappy Fridays – Guitar Tune-up

Well…ok…I’m posting this on a Saturday… SNAPPY SATURDAY.  HAPPY?  LOL!

Several weeks ago, I got back into an old hobby of mine: cleaning and restringing guitars.  I do play a bit of guitar and tool a bit with my two (almost) 30 year-old steel-string acoustics, which I may snap later on.

Anyway, my friend’s very well used and loved guitar is pictured here. I had offered to prep it (and have it “show ready”) for his son.  This was because his son was going to use it to perform his first live performance.

If you want to see some of the “before” pics and some “after” pics, read on…

Snappy Facts: The Lisgar GO Station is found along the Transit company’s Milton Line in Mississauga, Ontario.  It was opened for service on September 4, 2007 to provide relief for the congested Meadowvale Station to the east.  The station was named for the neighbourhood it serves, the neighbourhood taking from Lord Lisgar, the second Governor General of Canada (who served from 1869-1872.)  Source: Wikipedia
