Things I already knew, and more things that I didn't!

- On the whole informative and confidence building.
- Constant references to,"..but that is covered in (another video) so we won't show that here" a bit tiring.
- No help at all when the neck just won't budge (but then it is a video,..how could it troubleshoot for you?) A bit more info on dovetail construction details might have helped.

Nice DVD

This video gave me the confidence to proceed with my first neck reset, and to deal with the issues that came up with it. While it's a good video, it would be nice if there were some notes included, such as a list of the products used (especially the one for removing blush). Also, this is a burned dvd, not a pressed one, so the shelf life might be reduced. Ignoring these quibbles, the content is excellent, and I learned a lot.

Great resource!

I learned to reset necks from Bryan at his excellent school in Big Rapids, Michigan. (Nothing at all wrong with Dan giving Bryan's school a short plug in the video.) The video allows me to review the process and it also covers a few challenges that might arise. Well worth having.

Mr.Erlewine's books and all the free info is a large help.

A good guide for acoustic Guitars

What about Gibson set-neck electric guitars? I missed this subject completely! I actually bought this DVD because of that. All in all this DVD is helpful - but not for me...

Great Learning tool

In my opinion this is the best and easiest to understand DVD on the area of neck resets. It has helped me through about half a dozen resets, the latest as a Martin D20-12 string. Brian Galloup is a great teacher and covers all the bases to help you through it. Great product. Thanks Dan!!

Too much advertisement for a particular guitar shop

By Sylvain Chenard from Gatineau
(Customer's Reviews) Sunday, September 12, 2010

I would use another example of neck reset scenario instead of the "advertisement" of that guitar maker school in the middle of the DVD...

Besides this, it is an excellent tutorial which demystify the holy grail of neck reset
