I hope this is the right forum. What are the basics i should know for basic guitar repair? Like changing strings with different kinds of bridges, a tremelo system or a floyd rose or a fixed (is that what it is called?) bridge? I need you fine people on UG to explain to me how to do the basic handy-work with guitars.

To do basic guitar maintenance, you should know how to:

- Adjust action on all the different types of bridges
- Adjust intonation on all the different types of bridges
- Adjust a truss rod
- Set pickup height
- Basic soldering/wiring skills for repairing/customizing electronics

More advanced guitar maintenance includes nut filing and fret leveling/replacement.

There is a book available that talks about pretty much all aspects of guitar maintenance. Another good resource is manufacturer websites.
