Dan's new 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.
