Not a tute, but one I restored recently. Customer appeared happy :D
He got mugged and used his guitar to defend himself, this was a back burner job,
Iike a paint shop with a car in the corner, i do these occasionally way cheaper to make sure work is always in the shop

Thanks Steve. Love that warning sticker stuck in the truss rod adjuster....should be mandatory on all guitars.

Hey Steve the tutes are always a welcome resource and that restoration is something else!
Without deviation progress is not possible.

Cool cool, thanks

Some of the tutes are a bit of a waste of time IMO, but I try to show different aspects of how I do my repairs from simple to complicated

Steve,
I don't think your tutes are a waste of time; far from it! I learn a lot from them.

I agree with Ken. They've got me out of more than one pickle.
