This is something you definitely have to check out. If your guitar has springy loose frets It needs to be fixed. Sharp fret ends, dead spots, frets buzz, loss of sustain are some of the symptoms of this illness. Check your frets and be sure that your guitar plays great. #soundcity #guitar #repair #shop #werepairguitars #luthier #loothing #whatsonyourbench #loosefrets

That's not gonna work... Gotta call an audible. . The tailpiece wouldn't accommodate the endpin jack, even if I were to have drilled it. So I had to give it a switchcraft jack and put it in like a Gibson. . #guitarshop #guitartech #guitarrepair #luthier #loothing #mandolin #silvertone #pickup #notgonnafit

Locking bridge posts get beat up from the edge of the bridge. Here’s an easy way to smooth out burrs and nicks that will stop the trem from returning to pitch. #stewmac #floydrose #whatsonyourbench #luthier #guitarrepair #guitarsofinstagram #lutherie #yql #guitar #loothing #guitardaily

This maple bridge plate was super hard and my Dremel bit was just burning its way through. Now it looks like I invited the Jamaican dope smoking team up here. . . #guitarshop #guitarrepair #luthier #guitartech #loothing #bridgeplate #dremel #stewmac

Just a little neck setting. These guys come with an archtop style saddle and the necks come in with a completely flat angle and a huge maple shim to prop the neck up. . . The shim has to be removed so you can give the neck some angle. For this one I had to chisel it away because it was glued to the rosewood too well. Then the dovetail needs to be cut so it fits down in it's home. Then you have to actually do the reset... These guys are a PITA. . . #guitarshop #luthier #guitartech #guitarrepair #neckreset #guitar #acousticguitar #kayguitar #vintageguitar #loothing

I was so so excited yesterday when I saw Barbara's insta story that she'll be doing live video for the first time here on Instagram on Wednesday for us. But this morning I've found out that it got cancelled!I'm not upset because I think Barbara and Armani beauty made the right decision to cancelled it. I think it's not the right time to do it. Especially with so many negative things that is happening around us. And I don't want my Queen to get bash by small-minded people. So for now let's just pray that everything will be okay.

"I think we should take a moment of silence for the loss of lives." I think we should take a moment of (non physical violent) noise for all the lives lost" - May 31st 2020 • I'm out of words so instead I chose to do a 2 meter limit drumming circle| performance amongst @artici.mtl - I took a moment throughout the day in solidarity with #justiceforgeorgefloyd 😤 #brionnataylor #tonymcdade #regispaquin (and for all the other people who gets murdered by the police and others each day) - playing loudly until my hands were sore on my djembe because yes I am angry. I'm not a violent person. but sometimes that is what we need to do to spark change if that's the only way the police is willing to listen. To people #loothing unnecessary companies that aren't at the top of our main problem and that has nothing to do with our cause for equal rights, justice, love, and respect.. those actions will later reflect badly and soly on the black community even though it's mainly done by white people pretending to be "allies", and this pushes the police - in places like here where #policebrutality and #racism may not be as prominent as in the states - to respond more violently then they would have if our protest - which is our right - had stayed as peaceful and as loud as it had started. | Change should be imposed through voting wisely, speaking loud and clear, listening & trying to understand eachother more when we disagree than when we agree, demanding justice, acknowledging when, where, and how we are privileged in order to realise how we can use that - through little steps each day - to help eachother move closer to fulfilling our cause. To my white friends: instead of breaking things & using moments like this to destroy more, why don't you step up each time you notice that your privilege limits ours.. In your day to day life, your career, your rewards, your promotions, your "let it slide" experiences, stoping to help somebody instead of filming it. The change starts in our actions, in understanding the problem first and foremost; taking responsibility for & being aware when a mistake is made, in order to fight for, & to apply better laws that will help, benefit the mass

Trying out the low tack tape that @stewmac_guitar sells. I learned how chippy the finish was when I was taking the binding off. . .

So far so good. A few days back my old drill press pass away. Quite unrepairable. After a lot of researches I was lucky enough to find another one from a local carpenter that loves to collect vintage woodworking machinery. (Thanks @archichat). I stayed up all night working on it, taking off all the rust and refurbishing it. it was worth it! I dig old stuff and it runs so good now. Thanks to all the people that help me to get out of this situation during the pandemic. I appreciate a lot! #soundcity #thanks #newdrillpress #woodworking #luthier #nicepeople #refurbishment #vintagewoodworkingtools #werepairguitars #backtobusiness #loothing

So several years ago I started experimenting with my own version of the old 60’s res-o-glass guitars. After many attempts I finally came up with a formula that worked, the first pic is a early prototype body that’s been cut out to show the inner construction. It consists of a one piece fiberglass body and solid pine center block. I dubbed it “tone-glass” 🤓 But the following pics are one of the guitars that I held onto from the project. It’s a tele style “tone-glass” body with top loading bridge, a single Lindy Fralin sp43 bridge pickup, Emerson esquire wiring with eldred mod, maple neck finished in amber nitro with a zero glide nut. These bodies are super light and resonant, and really have a surprisingly aggressive tone.

Here’s what I learned this weekend, my 1977 Kramer 250G was factory routed for humbuckers! I made a new pickguard for mine and installed a pair of @developing_nations distor’trons. This guitar sounds HUGE now. And I didn’t have to make any changes to the original parts. #luthier #loothing #kramer #aluminumneck #aluminumneckguitars #guitar #guitarra #handmade #diy #guitarrepair #guitarrepairtips

Said goodbye to the last 6 frets on my mandolin today. It was time. #mandolin #guitarrepair #loothing #florida #whoneedsafingerboardextension

I practiced a bit of witchcraft on one of my closet guitars today. I used the 1/16th inch heaters that @martinluthierking came up with. I still have a bit of tinkering to get everything totally dialed in, but it works great. . . The holes are tiny, which means they're nearly invisible after the new fret goes in. Forgive the chip-out on the pisswood fret removal-- it wouldn't cooperate and I didn't feel like busting out the soldering iron. . #guitarshop #guitartech #luthier #guitarrepair #loothing #guitar #acousticguitar

Frozen saddle? Here’s how to get it unstuck without stripping. Clean out the crud, get the right wrench (size it on a clean saddle) then gently back and forth until it gives. Sometimes you can also tap the bottom of the screw with a flat screwdriver. Back and forth is the key! On the bench at Lafayette Music #guitarrepair #loothing
