Meet the Person Behind

String GuruHi! I’m Sumanta Halder, the owner of this site, and I have a well respected family business called Halder & Co which was established in 1910 and has been passed down to me. Apart from my passion for guitars I’m a graduate (and post graduate) from Intercollege, Cyprus and I am also a highly educated and successful businessman.

I was born into a family of musical instrument manufacturers and merchants and since early childhood, have had a lifelong fascination and passion for guitars. At a very young age I started learning Spanish Guitar, and still love playing it when I have some spare time. This is also a reason why I’m extremely familiar with guitars of all makes and types.

A truly accomplished musician understands that a bond between instrument and musician is vital to making beautiful music. To play music well goes beyond just the talent of the musician. A musician needs to have an instrument that is perfect for them, just like a beautiful painting depends upon a careful selection of brushes by the artist.  In a sense a musician develops a deep emotional attachment to their instrument as it is the vessel that can express the music from the musician’s soul. A musician is incomplete until he bonds with his instrument. I was able to choose the best guitar for myself at such a young age because I had my elders who already knew so much, to guide me. They knew my potential and comfort.

Being a guitarist and luthier, I am well acquainted with each and every part of a guitar. I have long standing expertise regarding the detailed specifications of every significant guitar brand. Every guitar has a perfect matching player. My passion is in matching the guitarist with the perfect guitar for them.

Now that you’re here, I’m quite sure that you either want to know more about guitars or maybe you’re interested in buying one, probably online. Allow me to help you make the best choice as I have a wealth of information to share. My many years of guitar knowledge has come about through helping many novices in my shop who have trusted my expertise in assisting them find their perfect choice in guitars. Now I am able to pass this onto you!

  1. Good day, Sumanta.  I noted that in your Yamaha CG122MCH review you said, “…could have been improved with the addition of a truss rod which could adjust the action of the guitar” and “…adjust the guitar for a higher action (although this is more difficult without the truss).”  One does not adjust the action with the truss rod, but instead alters the neck relief, a very, very slight forward bow.  One adjusts the action by lowering (by sanding) or raising (by shimming) the saddle.

    A truss rod, if present, sets the fretboard to nearly flat — just enough bow to reduce fret buzz, particularly at the lowest frets.  A straightedge extending over the 1st and 11th (or 14th) frets should clear the 6th (or 7th) fret by only 0.2mm or so.  Relief may need to be adjusted with seasonal weather changes, or if a different gauge of strings is installed.

    The very first time a guitar is set up, typically the nut slots are deepened (with special tools and great precision) to optimize string heights over the first fret
