When Dan's guitar shop videos first appeared in 1984, they broke new ground: for the first time, an experienced guitar repairman shared his skills and welcomed newcomers into the craft by teaching on camera.
These videos have provided valuable schooling to luthiers around the world, and have started many careers. Now Dan's videos have been more than updated: in 2001, Dan filmed a whole new series to replace his old tapes. These volumes include fresh ideas, current tools, and new techniques. Benefit from Dan's forty years of repair experience in this new series.
Dan has completed the filming, and is editing these tapes himself (maybe someday he'll make how-to tapes on making videos!).
These popular videos have been converted to DVD!:
Nut Making Step-By-Step
Maintenance & Setup for Electric Guitars and Basses
Maintenance & Setup for Steel-string Acoustic Guitars
