Re: Spanish style building repair?

Thanks a lot Joshua. Well, it has been a long time since i saw Frank Ford's neck reset. I have known that site, may be for 20 years. And i'm sorry, but i won't do this. I don't care about refinish. That is not a problem with french polish. The guitar is all assembled with titebond. The purflings are...

Spanish style building repair?

Hi everybody. One of the guitars i made at the guitarmaking school has serious problems. https://scontent-mrs2-1.xx.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-9/119066401_10207901070482070_5889839120882395758_o.jpg?_nc_cat=111&_nc_sid=730e14&_nc_ohc=c43nM7kOck0AX8gvmZK&_nc_ht=scontent-mrs2-1.xx&oh=81cc86dbc49ba2f18afb508c4a1...

Re: This got me mad!

As for the other video.

Nope, you don't expect to sell a 35000 dollars guitar, with the strings dangling on the back of the bridge.

Re: This got me mad!

Ryan, i have done it. Left a comment on his video. And this is no playground shaming methods. I tell you straight. With a modern instrument, factory built mainstream thing, he can do whatever he wants. With a 50+ years old Brazilian rosewood back and side set, from a renowned maker like gibson. Even...

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fixMWe-O5u4 At 3 minutes onwards. You want to sell a 50 thousand dollars guitar with strings attached to the bridge that way? Not even trimmed?

Hey guys. Cool to see you're still here. Clay, i'm sorry, but that's a bodger's job. Raising the fingerboard, with crap wood, to accomodate for the new top. :roll: Chuck, sorry, that name doesn't even ring a bell to me. But zillion liters of beer have down my guts since the original mimf. Hello Jim!...

Re: What is the bassier resonator guitar.

Thanks a lot Brian. That has been a while since i heart that name Paul Beard. I don't know how his instruments sound. Really, i've spent a fair while on youtube, and mostly, what i hear, as bassier, is biscuit cone guitars. Even more the latest lighter gauge metal bodies. I have a cheapo spider one....

Re: Mario Proulx's filter?

Hi Jim!

Well, sure it's been a long time. I have to concentrate on my day jobs (roofing/timberframing, exept in the winter, when i'm on the chairlifts) I hope all the ones i know over here on the forum are all right.

That's the one. Perfect! Thanks a lot.

Mario Proulx's filter?

Hi everybody. Well, some might remember me. I'm most certainly unknown to most :mrgreen: I've searched through the library for sure, and can't find anything on Mario's old closet filter for airborne dust. Any lead for me? Mario, if you pop around. I'd love a link, for a badly coughing friend. Thanks...
