A Special Event Sunday 3pm!! Ian Davlin ianhatesguitars will be hosting the one and only Dan Erlewine monsterfret to talk about the greatest contraption known to the fretting universe! The Neck Jig! Dan invented the neck jig decades ago and it changed the world of fretting forever.
I've been a neck jigger for more than 30 years and I gotta tell you, I'm excited about this one. Dan's going to be covering the what, why and how of the jig and it's history. Scroll through the pictures to see some of the versions of the neck jig we've use over the years and some fun we've had with the greatest mousetrap ever created!
How can you participate? Easy, join Ian's IHG patreon group at ianhatesguitars.com to get in on the fun. Ian's group of wayward luthiers is a fantastic platform to get to know other looths, learn from one another about the craft and connect with luthierians from all over the planet. The greatest part is the "Loothalong" where twice a week you can work in your shop with dozens of other luthiers, learn from one another, ask questions, talk shop and get advice. Just this afternoon while working in my touch-up room I was hanging with Dan and Evan Gluck newyorkguitarrepair talking about jigs, frets, finishing and vises - until the conversation moved to Dan's gourmet fried sandwiches.
For less than the price of the cup of Starbucks you spilled on your bench this morning you could have been hanging out with us. Head over to ianhatesguitars.com or ianhatesguitars to sign up before the big event with Dan tomorrow.
I'll be there and participating. I'll see you there!
