Help Finding a Guitar Site

Postby Butch Brookshier » Thu Jun 01, 2017 6:49 pm

I hope I've put this in the right place.
I'm trying to find a site I visited several years ago. I thought I had bookmarked it, but if so, I've lost it.
It was the site of a shop/repairman that had many photos of various guitars he had repaired. The things that stuck with me are his use of de-ionized water and a guitar he was repairing that had a big chunk of epoxy from some hamfisted repair in it. Many of the repairs were shown in step-by-step fashion.

It's not Hoffman guitars. I've tried some Google searches, but haven't hit on the right combination of search terms. Of course, the site may have since disappeared.

Anyone have any ideas?

That's it. For some reason my old bookmark for the site no longer functioned, but doing a Google search for the URL brought it up. And the repair pages are under the not really well named "Items for Luthiers", which sounds like a merchandize page.

In any case, thanks!
