Albert King V | Lucy 1

Dan Erlewine & Bryan Galloup 

In the early 70’s Dan Erlewine built custom guitars for iconic guitarist that molded the sound of American pop culture. These one of a kind instruments were made to the specifications of the performers that was unique in style and sound.

Decades later Bryan Galloup joined Dan in his shop as an apprentice and together they continued building and repairing guitars in the Erlewine tradition.

Now three decades later, Dan and Bryan have re-teamed to reproduce two of these iconic instruments, the Albert King “V” and the Jerry Garcia Stratishcaster. All tone woods are sonically tested through Bryan’s patented Instrument Making Software™ to ensure these instruments not only look the same, the player will experience the same feel, weight and response of the original instruments.”

Meeting The Godfather of American Lutherie, Dan Erlewine aka monsterfret He’s the first person to put guitar building and repair instructions on tape, making lutherie work accessible for everyone around the world, and he went on to design, prototype, build, and sell a very large portion and majority of tools I use today as a student luthier.

When I started my guitar repair journey many years ago this man monsterfret helped me and many others through his books and videos, and of course his work with stewmac_guitar . I could only dream seeing him using something I made.

Well thanks to the Patreon “Ian hates guitars” not only has my dream become a reality today, I am very humbled and honoured to be part of such a great group of people..

Va falloir que je me motive à réparer cette Chiquita. Je l'ai construite tout seul de A à Z, c'est une de mes premières guitares qui a été cassée par mon fils qui s'est pris pour yaggerdang (Pete Townshend). Vous la reconnaissez? Un modèle de Mark Erlewine, le cousin de monsterfret (Dan Erlewine) utilisé par Marty dans Retour vers le futur! #vincentbrun #luthierdebutant

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again… I love doing fret work. I especially love re-fretting a guitar you forgot actually used to shred cuz it’s been borderline unplayable for so long. Just lifeless and unenjoyable to play because you loved it too hard for so long… Frets so low you can barely bend strings, lifting/loose frets that kill sustain/tone or deep indents near the nut area from destroying parties with drunken cowboy chord covers.

I’m a fan of the sound a well seated, glued in fret offers vs one that was just hammered or pressed in raw. There is something harmonious that happens after filling every void between fret tang and slot. Here's an excerpt from a Stew-Mac "Trade Secrets" newsletter: "Try this yourself: Glue a fret or two, then tap a bone nut blank on one of them. Listen to the sound. Now tap an unglued fret. The glued frets create a fuller sound that actually vibrates through the neck. You can see how this translates to better overall tone."

Do you think gluing frets makes a difference? Do you prefer to save your glue for sniffing?? What are some good glues I should be sniffing or fretting with? Help me out here, I’m ready to party.

Three decades later, Dan monsterfret and Bryan have re-teamed to reproduce Albert King’s iconic V, “Lucy”. To ensure these instruments not only look and feel the same, Dan used the last of his original Lucy wood to build one for joebonamassa and myself. Very happy to be a part of Dan and Alberts legacy.

Here’s a fun throwback from November of 2002. This was taken after my first one-on-one weekend workshop with Dan. Little did I know at the time, my career path would change within the following year and I’d be moving to Athens. Hard to believe this was almost 19 years ago! #guitarrepair #guitarshop #tbt #stratocaster #stadiumguitar #danerlewine #stewmac #luthier #luthiery ...
