Dan Erlewine: I'm wiring up a Les Paul here and it gives me a chance to show you these combination cutters and strippers all-in-one tool. That's pretty convenient to be able to just flip it over like that and move on to the next one.

This little wiring jig is a cool thing that Eric Coleman gave me. It takes a tuner box and drills it for the pattern of the guitar he's working on. This is a Les Paul. He keeps all the parts for that model in the box. These are a short shaft, so he marks it Les Paul short shaft, and he's got them for 335s, SGs, long shaft Les Pauls, you name it, and it saves him a lot of time.
