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!
Another snowstorm, can't get to the shop. There's only so much paperwork a luthier can do working remotely. Catchin' up on my "Danification". Watching monsterfret doin' his thang courtesy of stewmac_guitar
I was gonna go outside and make a guitar shaped snowman but that almost feels like work.

Six decades after he first began working with guitars, Erlewine says the internet has changed repair tutorials exponentially. He’s hopeful about the future, too.

The let’s pretend you’re a luthier daydream continues.... again buoyed by my apparent success with projects thus far.... today I re-glued a loose brace inside my old #takamine 12 string guitar - built a few home made contraptions to push the brace back in place #imnotreallyaluthier #hillbillyscissorclamp #danerlewine...
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.

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.

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...
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!
