    Eddie Van Halen's Guitar Tech Tom Weber Restrings and Sets Up an EVH Frankie




    Tom Weber stopped by Five Star Guitars to demonstrate the tools, techniques, and philosophies of setting up guitars for the world's biggest guitar heroes. Eddie Van Halen, C.C. DeVille, and many other six string stars have relied on Tom's expertise, consistency, and efficiency to get their instruments performance-ready while out on tour.
    In this video, Tom restrings a limited edition custom shop Frankie. Throughout the process, Tom shares his time-saving techniques and go-to tools for getting the job done quickly. He patiently explains his approach to matching an instrument's setup to the player, providing reliable intonation and playability, and goes through each part of the process in-depth.
    As Tom skillfully works through the setup, he shares his thoughts on component upgrades, tuner peg-head wrapping strategies, and even goes so far as to explain why gravity is an important consideration when tuning guitars for his artists!
    Shot from multiple angles and close-up views, this tutorial is sure to inspire you to take your setup skills to the next level.

    The main reason for me watching this was I wondered how he stretched strings and if there was a better way to do it.

    I was not disappointed.

    I just tug the shit out of new strings but if you were restringing a bunch of guitars that tool would be nice. I just went to locking tuners, a brass nut and a Wilkinson trem. Stays in tune great and is less of a pain in the ass than a Floyd.

    Yeah doing 2 or 3 guitars before a gig can be a bit sore on your fingers after a while, I've ordered the tool for about $20 from EBay.

    I have to say being a guitar tech would not appeal to me as a job that much. The amount of string changing those guys have to do on a big tour would do my head in especially if it was a floating trem guy you were working for...

    Nobody likes changing strings. It’s great to get tips from a pro though. It’s all about knowledge and tools. Fortunately a T handle hex wrench isn’t that expensive.

    Floating trems are no big deal if you stick with the same strings and tunings. The only thing bad about them is everything goes out if you break a string and if you rest your hand too hard on the bridge they can go a bit sharp. I can play a Yngwie Malmsteen Strat and not go sharp but a more heavy handed person might have a problem with the scalloped fretboard and floating trem. Some people play so hard they wear down stainless steel frets.
