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.”

Check this out! You know how conventional helping hands products either have arms that are too short to allow you to work inside a control cavity, or they're too puny to hold all your parts securely?
.
Our shop supervisor, Dan Brooks came up with a great idea for a new tool that fixes all these problems. We call it the Solder Monster. It has 4 super-strong, super-long posable arms that'll reach right down into your control cavity and hold all your parts exactly where you need them. And it even attaches to your shop vac to keep all those poisonous fumes out of your face while you're working.
.
And as icing on the cake it has lots of storage room for wire, solder and your favorite tools.
.
Erick just made a new video about it. You should check it out on our YouTube channel.

The great thing about hanging out with Dan is you never know what he is going to haul out of a dusty case to show off.
.
After shooting another Trade Secrets video (By the way, are you subscribed to our YouTube channel?) He shows off not 1 but 2 mid 50's vintage Gibson Les Pauls. 🤯 .
He also shows a tip for how to get these old guitars to play in tune better.

So here's something fun...
.
The crew at the shop is working hard on getting a new tool ready to launch soon. Any guesses what this is?
.
You might not know this, but StewMac makes, modifies or assembles about 70% of everything we sell. Even "common" items you see in other places are often modified by us (or specifically for us).
.
Like you, we live in our shops too and we're constantly coming up with ideas to help make the work (and the experience) better. .
