Personalised multi-point setup included

Before dispatch, your instrument will be treated to a full setup. That's not a quick tweak, but a full multi-point setup by an experienced guitar technician who will check and adjust every single thing on your guitar, bass, ukulele or banjo to ensure it is performing at its absolute best.

This is not a quick process but we believe every instrument should go through our process to acheive an exacting standard of playability.

Frets

We start with the frets on your instrument. All guitar necks move and change over time so we will make sure that your frets are nice and flat as we go up the neck. We don't want any high or low spots as this will mean your guitar will need a higher than optimum action and potentially suffer with fret buzz.

We check and properly profile the playing surface of the frets and then make sure the fret ends are finished off properly. The fret is then polished to ensure smooth string bending.

Truss Rod

Then it's on to the truss rod. This metal rod differs from guitar to guitar (some guitars such as classical guitars don't usually have a truss rod!) and basically controls the "relief" or curve of the neck. Not enough relief and your strings won't have enough clearance over the other frets when playing. Too much relief and you'll have a high action which gets worse as you go up the neck.

The heavier the strings then the more the truss rod needs to work. Proper adjustment in the workshop means that the action will be just right for the strings fitted to your guitar.

Top Nut

The top nut is super important and is one of the two open contact points of your guitar. The technician will check and cut each slot to make sure the strings both run freely but are not sitting in a slot that's too big.

The top nut also plays a big part in the action of your guitar so we'll hit that sweet spot between too low and too high.

Saddle(s)

Another really important part of your guitar!

On an acoustic, the saddle is cut to the correct height making sure the bottom is 100% flat and straight. This means the string can transfer its vibration properly into the body of your guitar.

For electric guitars, the saddles are adjusted to ensure your intonation is perfect. We will also match the saddles to the radius of your fretboard.

Bridge / Tremolo

The bridge affects the break angle and string height of your guitar and is also responsible for holding your saddles.

For a guitar with a Floyd Rose tremolo system or similar, the spring tension has to be just right to allow the tremolo to return to its "zero point" and keep everything in tune.

For guitars with standard tremolos, we can set it to float and be used both up or down like a true tremolo or we can lock the trem block back so the tremolo will only go downwards.... the choice is yours!

Intonation

Intonation is the measure of how in-tune the guitar string is across the length of the fretboard and a guitar with badly set intonation will get more and more out of tune as the string is shortened when you play.

Tiny adjustments are made to each string where applicable to adjust its length and ensure that the intonation is set just right.

Overall Action

Once all the above has been completed, the guitar is checked for playability and fine adjustments are made. This step brings everything together and means your guitar will be set up optimally.

Machine Heads

Every machine head is operated and checked for function. We need to ensure that the machine heads operate smoothly.

Electrics

All the functions of your guitar are checked to ensure everything is working as intended.

For acoustic guitars we will check the functions of the EQ system and controls as weel as check the internal cabling and jack socket.

For electric guitars, all the pickups are checked for function and tonal response. All controls and switches are operated to ensure they are functioning properly. The jack socket is checked.

Other Parts

All other parts such as strap pins, bushings, tuning buttons etc are fully checked.

Dispatch

All our instruments get the same premium treatment wether you purchase online or instore.

If you have purchased online, your guitar will be carefully packed ready for dispatch. You will receive a tracking link via email.

Happy playing :)

Description

After analyzing many legendary fuzz pedals, the Waza Craft team set about making a premium pedal able to deliver all the tone, feel and vibe of classic fuzz pedal, with the pros of a modern design and high-quality appointments - welcome to the BOSS Waza Craft FZ-1W Fuzz pedal! 

Unlike previous previous Waza Craft pedals, the FZ-1W is BOSS's modern interpretation of a vintage fuzz as opposed to a modern recreation of a particular vintage fuzz unit. Many vintage fuzz pedals whilst can sound great often have there downsides - sometimes being inconsistent and having their tone affected by things such as age, battery and temperature...this is not the case with the FZ-1W! Utilizing high quality silicon transistors and with a unique circuit, the FZ-1W will deliver authentic tone time and time again, with higher gain, lower noise and deeper tone shaping on offer.

The FZ1W has a simple, yet effective control set. The 3 knobs give you control for Level, Fuzz and Tone, whilst the V/M micro switch gives you access to Vintage and Modern fuzz tones. 

The Vintage fuzz sound is raspy and assertive with more gain and a wider expression available compared to vintage fuzz pedals. It's also very dynamic, so use your guitar's volume control to go from heavy fuzz to clean tones. 

The Modern setting is a more refined sound, and more versatile, with a focused mid range and fatter tone. The gain range is wider than Vintage mode, whilst the Tone control lets you tweak the brightness whilst maintaining that all important mid-range.

If you love fuzz, and want a pedal with fuzz pedal with versatility, reliability and a great range of tones, look no further than the BOSS Waza Craft FZ-1W.

  • Premium Waza Craft pedal for the ultimate BOSS tone experience
  • Redefined fuzz sounds that combine classic tone and response with modern versatility and stability, realized through BOSS Waza innovation
