Vintage Guild Acoustic - Nut Replacement

Happy 4th of July!

A brief article today but, appropriately, an American Classic.

This is a customer guitar that came in recently. This 1978 Guild D25CH was brought in by it's original owner. While it shows some signs of it's age, this guitar has been a great workhorse for it's whole life and still serves that roll.

Ibanez JS100 - Fret Level, Re-crown and Polish

Another fun project today, this one an Ibanez JS100 (Joe Satriani Signature) that's been thoroughly 'loved' over the last 10 or so years.

At the time it came in, the strings had been clipped off and it was sitting without them for an extended period of time. There's a lot of speculation that circulates around the dangers of leaving a guitar without strings on it for an extended period of time. The story that gets around basically says that the truss rod is tightened to counteract the tension of the strings as they try to 'bend' forward toward the bridge; when there's no strings upon it for an extended period of time, there's nothing there to couteract the tension of the truss rod, which is theorized to cause neck bending, fretboard loosening and all sorts of things.

A Visit to the Martin Guitar Factory | Nazareth, PA

This past week, I had the honor of visiting the Martin Guitar factory in Nazareth, Pennsylvania.

Kudos to the staff there for putting together a really great and informative tour. It's always nice seeing how other companies tackle the craft of guitar building, and it's especially interesting seeing an operation on this scale.

I took several pics while I was there but because of the conditions (some areas of low light, some areas where we were moving quickly), I had to use my 50mm prime lens which is manual focus; so some pictures are sharper than others. Still, there's a lot of interesting stuff to look at here, so enjoy!
