Dan Erlewine's Nut Making Step-By-Step

About This Item

Make a new nut like a pro! Dan's DVD makes a tricky job much easier. You'll see how to do professional work on Gibsons, Fenders and Martins, three very different types of nut work.

This video lesson covers all of the information you'd get if you could train personally with Dan Erlewine in his repair shop. Nut making is bread-and-butter work for the professional shop, and getting it right makes your customers happy. Every bit as important as neck adjustments and fret work, it's a key part of every guitar setup.

The whole process is presented: removing the old nut, making a top-quality replacement nut, and final shaping, polishing and installation.

Adjusting the neck Tapping out the nut Scribing/heating/cutting the finish Analyzing and preparing the nut slot Choosing a nut blank Fitting a nut blank: techniques for Fender, Gibson and Martin Laying out the string spacing Lowering the slots Shaping, sanding and polishing Gluing the nut Finishing.

This DVD shows a lot of information about nut-making! I have books about it, but it is nice to see the actual procedure in a video. For someone just getting started in this field, this and other videos you carry, really show how its done and have boosted my confidence in attempting this delicate work! Cheers!

What can you say. All of these DVDs should be viewed by every shop or guitar player that wants to do his/her own guitar work. Finally being able to watch a Pro do these jobs makes doing the job so much easier. Awesome awesome work for making these DVDs Dan Erlewine. You truely are a genius.

GOOD START!

I usually pay $250 for a bone bridge and $150 for a bone saddle. Now I do it myself. This video is excellent to get started. Just remember Dan has been making these for a long time and makes it look easy, don't do your first one on your Martin! Well worth the money just to learn what they do with your guitar!
