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.

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 ...

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.
