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.”

Olá, pessoal!

Tem entrevista nova no blog Guitarras Made In BraSil. Desta vez, um bate-papo com o luthier Rodrigo Gomes, responsável pela RGomes Brazilian Archtop (rgomes_rod ). Além de modelos archtop, ele fabrica outros modelos de guitarras, incluindo também contrabaixos, violões, cavaquinhos e ukuleles além de restaurações em instrumentos antigos.

Ao longo da conversa, ele nos contou sobre os motivos que o levaram a se tornar luthier, a experiência de estudar e trabalhar com luthieria nos EUA, o convívio e o aprendizado com a lenda Dan Erlewine (Stewmac), as características necessárias para se fazer um boa archtop, dentre outros assuntos.

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.

Very excited to receive a fresh set of nut files; they get replaced every few years. stewmac_guitar is about the best thing to happen to guitar repair since Frank Ford and Dan Erlewine discovered screwdrivers when they were four. We’re lucky to have these tools.

But as high quality as these files are, their stated thicknesses are never accurate, so if you’re loothing about make sure to measure yours up before cutting into a nut. These files would otherwise under-size your nut slots, resulting in grabby string slots that cause tuning problems!

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 ...

Just found this one on my phone. My Stewmac compadres wrestling the neck off of a ‘42 D-45, with a special Maglite assist by Steve! #guitarrepair #martind45 #1942 #vintageguitar #acousticguitar #martinguitar #stewmac #heystewmac #danerlewine #toddsams #elliotjohnconry ...

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.

Brand new 2021 Iris DE-11 Dan Erlewine signature model handmade in Burlington, Vermont. Serial #169. Dan’s first signature guitar, based on his beloved 1937 Kalamazoo KG-11, features a 1930s V-shaped neck, Rickard rear-mount banjo tuning machines, an Adirondack spruce top, a satin finish, as well as Honduran mahogany back, sides, and neck. Most intriguing, its neck extends past the nut before transitioning into the ears of the peghead, and threaded brass inserts in the fingerboard accept screw-down capos. “It’s the most musical new guitar I’ve ever owned,” says Erlewine. Satin finish with no pore filling. Bolt on Mortise and Tenon neck joint. Katalox fretboard/bridge. Adirondack spruce braces. Bone nut/saddle. Tiger stripe pickguard. Built in Capo System comes with 3 capos, 2 thumb screws, 4 torx screws, and Torx Screw Installer. 4.0” deep at end pin. TKL Hardshell case.
