Bad news: the binding on this old Gibson is crumbling to bits. Worse news:that binding is the only thing holding the body together!
Dan Erlewine's plan is to replace the binding bit-by-bit, so the top doesn't fall off. By grinding a new edge on a razor file, he creates a tool for cutting crisp square binding channels without a router.

About the guitar in this video: This Gibson L-4 from 1951 appears to have seen years of playing in Nashville honky tonks. The top has gold stick-on letters that spell "LEFTY LEE."
