Old videos

The videos are helpful but they are old. These are just a piece of the knowledge you need to start doing quality repair work. They are also expensive but worth it if they go on sale.

VOL1 review

Lots of good info and demonstration. Perfect for newbies to bridge repair. My only complaint is the price which is what holds me back from getting more of Dan's DVD's period, no matter what the subject is.

Great DVD's

I bought both of these, and learned a lot from them. The quality of DVD 2 was not the best, due to the quality of the original shots, but still acceptable.

Excellent video!

I used the information in these videos to perform a rather advanced repair on an old Gibson Hummingbird that had been damaged from previous poorly done work. The guitar needed very similar work to the old SJ that Dan repairs in the second video. I would not have had the confidence to save the Hummingbird if not for the clear and detailed instruction that Dan gives. A real home run!
