Even between two Gibson LP models of the same year (1992) the differences are well noted. The guitar care is important, let’s see why.
Setting up regularly is perhaps the most important variable, to have a performance guitar or bass that does not lose value over time
These two Gibsons have been changed the frets (the same dimensions for both) we reviewed the setups pretty much the same, but the playability of the instruments is still very different. The non-care of an instrument leads to make it less efficient at the fingerboard, neck and timbre.
A neck left untouched over time, can become very tenacious, but in the wrong position (upbow, backbow, or worst). Wood, by its nature, can bend in various points and can twist itself. The pickups can be demagnetized or broken. The metal parts (bridge and tuners) can oxidize to the point where they can no longer be used. And we could go on like this, listing other degenerative possibilities.
The conclusion is, let yourself be seen occasionally by a luthier. Spending 50 dollars for a setup is an insurance, as well as a professional intervention.

Today I removed all the frets from this EKO guitar n. 100, vintage semi acoustic from the 70s, Italian factory production (Recanati).
Removing the frets is usually a necessary operation on all vintage guitars, which have not had special care over time.
The frets needed to be changed with the use of the guitar, being composed of relatively soft metal material (18% nickel). Only a few recent models mount hard stainless steel frets, which last longer, but unfortunately make various complications during their mounting on fretboard.
When only the first frets getting used, it often means that the instrument played with a wrong setup.
Alborosie comes back to Jamaica with a little gift!
The sound of this guitar (Eko, artisan production), which mounts the C-Big Beat (Cesarini Pickups) seems to have impressed him. Valter Vincenti, his guitarist and our dear friend, should have finished the tour with this guitar, but we will find a solution for him!
These are things that can not be predicted … he told me he felt in love!
We took a picture togheter in Bologna, both for the memory and for the satisfaction. See you soon Alborosie!
I have recommended the C-Big Beat for Valter Vincenti new EKOendorsement, which will play during the 2016 tour of Alborosie. To be mounted on the eko “Aqua” model.
Today, a day to find the “voice” of Valter Vincenti. We found something at the end! Our relationship is consolidated, after having met us in the laboratory for a simple maintenance, a musical collaboration is tightened.
In the meanwhile we are thinking about the now ready C-MOP lp vintage series ’70 guitar, for Alborosie 2017 tour. Valter definetely likes italian guitars.
I want to remind myself that the endorsers are very useful to makers, not so much for the commercial promotion of the product (through clinic or video), but more than anything else to understand the timbric tastes of the period and to test the instruments.
The exasperated marketing of the products, through a musician who often does not even know the subject well or who in any case does not really feel a feeling with what he is playing, has always turned out to be sterile. Another thing is the test of a musician who knows the instrument, has played it, brought it in the tuor. It is possible to listen to Valter in Cesarini Jam Session 4.2, where he plays with C-Big Beat, Cesarini Pickups.
