Tuning problems fixed + a guitar lesson!


Issue 294 October 19, 2017



This vintage Southern Jumbo wouldn't stay in tune, so Spencer Bohren brought it to Dan Erlewine's shop. The solution is a new set of Waverly Tuners, and Dan shows Spencer how to install them himself -- including a simple way to plug old screw holes. Spencer returns the favor by giving us a guitar lesson.
