Malcolm: Copy the text and paste it into the address/browzer/whatever it's called line at the top of your screen.<br /> <br /> FYI: It's 9:30 long and is on the "double cutaway Tele", the one that someone "modified" with a swa.<br />

Send it to me - I play lefty. I'll play it the way it was "repurposed" by the owner "post" Michael Bloomfield.

Ya gotta love Dan!<br /> <br /> "How to Make Your Electric Guitar Play Great" was what got me to try doing my own set ups and mods.<br /> <br /> The good folks here have got me even further, but I still refer to Dan's book from time to time.<br /> <br /> Thanks for posting that henry!<br />

I've seen this video before now. I love to watch and hear Dan do his repairs on guitars. He is a master.

GREAT story with that guitar. <br /> <br /> One goofy thing he says re: the grooves in the end of the rosewood fingerboard behind the nut.<br /> <br /> They're not from string wear, they're from sloppy tech work with nut files. The strings don't make that much of an angle over the nut to even come close to wearing against the wood like that.<br /> <br /> "It plays like a million bucks, and would probably sell for a lot more." <br /> <br /> Yup!

It’s got great spank and snap in GE’s hands.

Geez--it makes me want to send my Tele up to him for a set up. I've never had a professional set up to any of my guitars but I'm thinking on this.

larryguitar19, a setup is The Best Thing you can do for any guitar. It's better than new tuners, new pickups, etc.<br /> <br /> The $50-$75 cost is CHEAP--relative to the quantum improvement in ease of play and good tone that results from some experienced TLC.<br /> <br /> You'll beat yourself up for not having done it sooner.

"The $50-$75 cost is CHEAP--relative to the quantum improvement in ease of play and good tone that results from some experienced TLC.<br /> <br /> You'll beat yourself up for not having done it sooner."<br /> <br /> I used to have all of my guitars set up by the techs at Mandolin Brothers here on Staten Island...I never once bought a guitar there but their techs were great. As I kept going to the same tech, he started to know exactly how I liked things and I could get a perfect set up to my preference just about every time, and if not, he'd tweak it while I was standing there. It was well worth the money. <br /> <br /> They have closed and I don't know where any of those techs are now. I need a new nut on my '78 Strat and I just have no confidence in anyone local doing it right.
