Best Place to Get Your Guitar Fixed if You're Prone to Panic Attacks (2008)

Dan's Chelsea Guitars Inc.

I was only a week into another psychotropic-fueled attempt to rein in my brain when my world came crumbling down at my feet. While leisurely plucking along to a Sonny Sharrock record, I made the startling discovery that my G note didn't match Sonny's. "It's 5:30 p.m. No repair shop will be open now," I whimpered, grinding my teeth. Frothing over, I called Dan's Chelsea Guitars Inc. "Can you help me????????," I choked, pounding walls and chewing on my fingers. Amid all the dangerous excitement, the gentleman over the phone diagnosed my guitar as having intonation problems and walked me through the process of fixing it. And in the end, he didn't even call the men in white suits like my mother once did.
