Thought this would be enjoyable.
That was cool.
Dan is a genius.
I really love vids like that although I will never be some kind of luthier. I leave this stuff to more skilled people than me. Like my dear friend Malte Böwe of Hamburg.
As much as I'm not into relic'ing it was interesting to see how he went about it. Thanks for posting - I wish we could see an upclose of the plug before and after painting, to see how the grain matched up!
Thanks for sharing, really interesting!
From butchered to reliced : this tele has come a long way. Thanks for sharing!
All of his videos are great stuff. Despite their somewhat high prices, Stewmac has really good customer service, quality parts and they ship the same day. I even did the $39 'StewMax' thing to get free shipping for a year, so now I don't hesitate to order $5 worth of stuff when I need it
Yep, i've always had good dealings with them. I like the one stop shopping too.
New P.B.S series This Old Guitar. Thanks for posting.
I'd be impressed if he would have matched the end grain and finished it in a transparent color.
Nice save Dan, that guitar must mean something to someone. I wonder how much something like that would cost to do?
I had a '57 body stripped and refinned in blonde nitro with barely any relicing and it was $450.00. This was at least 10 yrs ago
I really enjoy checking out Dan's videos. Not that I'd ever be able to do anything that he does, because I'm wood shop challenged.
Awesome work. Makes me ashamed of my damp shed with its puny little hobby bandsaw
However, I'll never understand the appeal of relicing. Watching Mr Dan Erlewine dragging a valuable vintage guitar over some garden stones was downright creepy.
In this instance you can think of it more as restoration. When i did my '57 it was the same, i had very little wear on the neck so we made the body match and im sure thats what Dan's doing.
In this case, I don't think of it as relicing a vintage body...he's relicing the new paint.
I guess that really wasn't Relic ing.
Nope, I will not be moved. Dan Erlewine is scraping a '53 Tele across a rockery. My brain will not process that, I admire his work too much.
I shall repeat to myself what I suspect Dan was chanting in his head during this evil deed. The customer is always right, the customer is always right...
You have to be realistic about the guitar tho
