Fender Jazzmaster Classic Player Makeover & Setup

As a Cleveland area luthier and performer, I’ve a soft spot for the Fender Jazzmaster. Here’s a video on how this Fender Jazzmaster Classic Player gets its vintage mojo back with a Jazzmaster bridge retrofit, Lindy Fralin pickups, and a personalized setup.

Damien & Dantez are Reunited

As Pablo Casals said, “Perhaps it is music that will save the world.” Music is our universal language. All of us appreciate, perform, play it. This is not much of a repair video, but please allow me to introduce you to a present and future voice for our “universal language”. Meeting artists like Damien tempers my cynicism and feeds my hope.

Harmony Monterey Archtop Crack Repair x 5

As a Cleveland-based luthier doing guitar repair and restoration, I see quite a few instruments requiring crack repair.  Instruments are allowed to dry out in the winter months or left in cars during the summer.  Car interiors can get to over 115 degrees and down to 14% humidity during the summer months!  This Harmony Monterey was an extreme case.  Five long cracks that all needed to be knitted back together.  Here’s a short video on how the repair was completed.
