Welcome to the Family

By purchasing an Oaklyn Guitar, you have joined a tribe of passionate musicians, artists, creators, and fans who place the highest value on quality craftsmanship and individual expression. We hope that you are as proud to own and play this guitar as we are to build it.

A guitar being polished
Our instruments are meticulously designed and assembled by hand, reflecting an unyielding reverence for the craft. We use materials of the finest quality to ensure a superior instrument and rewarding playing experience.
Just as no two guitarists are the same, no two Oaklyn guitars are the same. Your guitar is one of a kind. The original artwork embedded within your instrument is an expression of individuality as unique as the grain it is painted on. Simply, this is our ode to those that play, feel and hear with passion. It is our sincere hope that this serves, in some small way, as a conduit and perhaps even an inspiration for you and those around you.
As a new Oaklyn owner, we encourage you to share your experiences with your guitar with friends, family, and social media...we are excited to follow along. Below, you can find more tips and tricks on how to get the most out of your guitar, along with a guide for maintaining its longevity.

Thank you for being part of the family. We hope that this is the beginning of a great relationship.
Oaklyn Inc.

Guitar Maintenance

Important to Note

Your guitar has been crafted and assembled with the utmost care and attention. It has been personally set-up to our factory specifications in order to provide maximum playability.

Please keep in mind that, because your instrument is made of wood, it may have experienced slight changes during the shipping process due to:

-Temperature change
-Humidity change
-Elevation change
-Time between assembly and delivery
-Method of shipment
-Other climate conditions during transit

Changing Strings

Changing your strings is a great way to keep your guitar fresh and lively. We recommend refreshing them periodically to enhance playability and performance. Your guitar comes with Ernie Ball 2221 Regular Slinky Nickel Wound Strings (.010 - .046)

Truss Rod

Tucked within the neck of your guitar, the Truss Rod counter-balances the tension caused by tightened strings and stabilizes the contour of the neck. To adjust, simply remove the Truss Rod Cover with a Phillips screwdriver and use an Allen wrench to either tighten or loosen the rod exposed underneath.

Cleaning

To prevent premature aging and to keep your guitar in top condition, we recommend cleaning the fingerboard, body, and neck regularly. For the fingerboard, use lemon oil on a lint-free cloth, allowing time to soak before wiping off. For the body and neck we recommend Dunlop 65 polish using a 100% cotton cloth.

Guitar Strap

We have added Dunlop StraploksĀ® onto your hand-stitched Oaklyn guitar strap. To attach the strap to your guitar, simply press the locking pin plunger and insert the pin into the strap button on the guitar. To release, press the locking pin plunger and pull the strap off the strap button.
