Second Edition by Dan Erlewine
Dirty tuners filled with dried gunk: Dan Erlewine's working on a guitar that's been sitting untouched for over fifty years. The tuners are too stiff to use, but he gets them going again by using heat, naphtha and an injection of lubricant. He makes a nifty little tuner-holder jig, too.

About the guitar in this video: This is a 1954 Gibson ES-175. It's only had one owner; he bought it new in '54, put it in a closet for fifty years and has just gotten it out to play again!
