Here are links to 31 of my short free troubleshooting and repair videos on YouTube. You can see them by clicking the links below.
These videos are as a courtesy to help you. Please watch any and all relevant to your situation.
Don’t email or call with any followup questions, please. Don’t post comments in the videos or here, I won’t respond. I have made these videos to answer your questions, and to make my work life easier, not harder!
If you can’t get it right, don’t have the proper tools, or can’t figure it out with all this free help available, then it is best to just send in the components or headstock for me to service.
Also, there are 8 other Pro Tips YouTube repair videos I have published exclusively as bonuses for customers buying the related parts from me. Parts customers need to give me their email address so I can send you the links to the appropriate videos.
