Glenn LaSalle spent 2 days taping in my shop. We got a lot done and many videos came from your questions and ideas. We will keep you posted.
One video was a neck pull with 2 guitars to show you the similarities and differences . I pull at Stella from the 20's and a 47 Martin , then we reset the neck and strung up the Stella along with changing the nut and saddle.

A few repair videos on loose binding and side cracks so you will have a good bit to take in. We do this to pay it forward so we hope you find this helpful

Many thanks John

we got a pile
Neck reset of a stella and we put it back together so you can see the whole process even to make a nut and saddle
Pulling a martin neck and cold wet pull of bridge that you know has hot hide glue
side crack repair using super glue and epoxy
carving a neck heel
Binding repair with CA and duco
Bending technique
new product intro
Bending and explaining temps and using windex
talking about repairs and some intonation
I think we did about 14 hr of vid
and we did an unofficial beer bottle empty lesson
Glenn thinks we will have them ready to start posting in about 2 weeks
My job was easy smile and talk guitars Glenn has the hard work to edit and make sense of what I say
