5 best ways to upgrade/modify your guitar

Let’s face it; good guitars are expensive! Even if you buy something from the more reasonably priced end of the spectrum. Check out these fab Guitar options that won’t break the bank while you’re at it! At Soundbrenner, we’re nothing if not creative! That’s why we’ve compiled a list of the 5 best ways to upgrade/modify your guitar. 

5 best ways to modify your guitar/modify and shake things up!

Considering your sizeable investment in your guitar, upgrading your gear to make it your own instead of paying top dollar for a brand-new one makes more sense. Read on to see our top 5 best ways to upgrade/modify your guitar ideas:

1. Get yourself the Soundbrenner Core. Pronto 

Why did the guitarist refuse to wear a watch? Because he preferred to keep time with his fingers! That was before he knew about the Soundbrenner Core

Why settle for just one level up your guitar when the Soundbrenner Core can give it 7+ instant upgrades? It’s a contact tuner, a vibrating metronome, a decibel meter, a timer, a stopwatch, and a regular ‘ol smart watch all rolled into one. This gadget is designed with a guitarist like you in mind to help you improve your solo performances and your brand practices by linking up to five devices at once.

We recommend getting yourself (and your guitar) the Core if you want to make just one upgrade.

2. New pickups

One of the easiest, instant, and best ways to upgrade your guitar is getting yourself some new pickups. You can go as high-end or economical as you want with guitar pickups. It’s crucial to try out a few different materials and brands before you find the option best for your guitar, so don’t be afraid to experiment here. 

These Fender Original and Seymour Duncan pickups are excellent options for levelling up your pickups.

3. String her up!

The soul of your guitar is in its strings. Changing the type of strings on your gear can often give you that “oomph” effect you might be missing, both sound-wise and looks-wise. D’Addario, Elixir, Ernie Ball, and Dunlop are well-known guitar string brands for all types of coated and un-coated guitar string options. 

Bonus: updating your guitar strings can also be great for practice-sore hands and fingers!

4. Tuner knobs and buttons 

Tuner knobs are another excellent and simple modification for your equipment that would improve your guitar’s sound and aesthetics. Make sure you know the right size of tuner buttons according to your guitar type before getting a new set if you want to treat your guitar with a bit of TLC.

5. Modify the Bridge

The bridge of your guitar supports the strings and transmits vibrations to make your music sound unique. That’s why modifications to the bridge or even getting a new set of bridge pins can make a drastic difference in sound and tune.  

Show it some love by switching out the run-of-the-mill bridge your guitar probably came with with a better quality one of the same model and type. But first, ensure you understand the working of your current bridge and check if it’s the fixed or floating type
