Dan Erlewine went to the Columbus Guitar Show to sell some fixer-uppers. Nobody bought this beautiful 1930s Kay Deluxe; its neck joint problem must have seemed like too much work. The guitar came back home and volunteered for this Trade Secret about making a tiny saw for cleaning old glue joints!

About the guitar in this video: This 1930s Kay Deluxe has an usual design for an adjustable neck angle. Dan shows how it works on this video.
