    Hello all. Finally pulled the trigger and bought a new baja bsb. Love it. However today the lower strings started to buzz. Figure I should get it set up, but no idea where (other than big box retailers). I live in north/northeast dallas (lake highlands). Any suggestions? Didn't buzz the first few days so I'm guessing weather related?

    There are plenty of vids online, maybe YT, that show how to set up a Tele. Why waste money when u can do it yourself?

    I use a guy in haltom city. Tony's Muzik. Been using him for years. He's handled all my high end gear.

    A well setup guitar is priceless.

    The tele is easy to learn to setup yourself. After wasting money on a setup 27 years ago I learned and enjoy the process. It is pretty hard to screw up the guitar. you can usually undo anything with the twist of an allen wrench or screwdriver.

    Charley's is actually on south side of Royal Ln, just east of Denton Drive (next to Walnut Hill Paints). The techs at the GCs in Farmers Branch and Lewisville are both very good too.

    There are some really good suggestions already but I can highly recommend Dan McCarthy at Dallas Guitar Repair. The only thing is that he stays really busy so you may have a bit of wait to get your guitar back. He is very thorough and detailed in his work so not like the Guitar Center guys who do quick in and out setups.

    Dan is off of 75 just a little north of Mockinbird on Fondren Dr.
