Guitar Setup Masterclass - With Diego Casillas

Diego has worked with bands like Underoath, Chromeo, SmashMouth or Buzzcocks, among many others, as well as with amazing producers, such as Colin Brittain.

Learn from one of the best guitar techs in the industry how to set up your guitars to make them sound, play and feel perfectly, so you can deliver the best possible performances on your next record!

If You Record Guitars Or Bass, You Need This

If you've been following The Self-Recording Band Podcast for a while, you might know Diego Casillas. He was a guest on our show (Episode  47). 

But the first thing he did on our platform was an incredible live workshop on setting up guitars, inside The Self-Recording Band Academy, our flagship recording course (Email benedikt@theselfrecordingband.com if you want access to the Academy)

He then massively overdelivered and (without us asking for it) sent us additional, bite-sized videos that he created.


An entire, detailed walkthrough of every step along the way. Covering everything he couldn't cover in full detail during his 2-hour live workshop.


In the workshop and these videos Diego was showing our Academy members exactly how to

  • choose the right strings and string gauges
  • clean and maintain your guitar
  • choose the right tuner
  • pick the right tools (you don't need much)
  • stretch the strings properly
  • check the neck relief
  • adjust the action
  • adjust the intonation

He's also covering advanced topics like repairing or replacing the nut and he's dropping many more knowledge bombs and tricks that blew our minds when we first saw or heard them.

And finally, Diego is answering questions from our community members, making it even more valuable and relevant.

It's the whole thing, start to finish.

This was never meant to be a standalone course, so it is kind of like you're in a room with Diego. It's 100% authentic, "behind the scenes", real-life material, partly filmed on an iPhone (full disclosure) - but it's SO good that we just had to make it available for everyone. This is so much more than just some "bonus" content. And you can get access now.

We know that you'll get as much value out of it as our Academy students. We know that it will help you get (and keep) your instruments in tune, as well as make them play and feel perfectly, so you can deliver the best possible performances on your next record!
