Thanks Dan. Also looking forward to it. My only very minor suggestion is to put all the vid's somewhere (your web site?) where they can be referenced and looked at in sequence or individually.

I'm looking forward to seeing how you deal with this one.

Definitely a worthwhile project. Can't wait to see the outcome.

Regarding hack work - folks with an eye for detail and the desire to do things right are far too careful to ever produce hack work, regardless of their level of experience. Hopefully some people matching that description will learn from this thread. Those who are prone to hackery lack the patience to learn to do something right or think things through, and therefore will remain hacks. We can't save the world. The best we can hope for is to save a few guitars.

Awesome mud dauber wasp nest in there. Nothing like a wasps nest to give it that true vintage tone. ;)

But it probably explains the customer complaint of "guitar making buzzing sound... Sounds like bees are in it....."

Nice videos. I like the old guitars where the back is already coming off, makes it easy. Of course that usually means half the braces are coming off too.

Indeed, that is the case with this one. Just about every glue joint was coming apart save for the neck. The dovetail was just just too poorly to have good glue contact. They had plenty of glue in the joint, just no wood to wood contact to make it last.

That old glue can get all crumbly (is that a word?) - a mixed blessing for sure. Thanks for the videos, I love to see how others approach things.

Is that a molded bakelite bridge I see there? Looks like ebony at first... Then I notice it is hollow and it screws to the top.... Fine quality these old guitars.... No expense spared!

;)
