  • This Regal guitar was on its last leg. Headed for the dumpster at least twice in the last so many years. Apparently it was meant to be. I was able to fix her back up. It turned out to be a pretty decent little guitar.

    This is the first video of yours that I have discovered and watched and boy am I glad that I did. You can tell straight away that you are extremely knowledgeable and genuinely care for your craft. I came over from @twoodfrd channel and you two are the best that I've found on the YouTube .

    I wonder if you could have used a stack of bricks instead of clamps on that mahogany bridge plate?

    I just took a little nap and I woke and the wifey was watching this one. At first I wondered why someone would send this guitar to you, then she told me it was the guys dad's guitar and that it hadn't been played in 50 years. Then it all made sense. We are watching part 2 on the 65" screen. By the way, your video is coming through real clear.

    Clamp it Jed! That edge clamp you used on the crack is something. Never seen that before.

    I've redone a few Harmonys and Supertones from the 1930's. I've seen the brace go all the way across under the bridge, on Supertones. I think it was done on very thin tops to avoid trashing a production piece. Nice work!

    wouldn't that thick plate under the bridge reduces the sound board vibration ?

    Shouldn't you have clamped the center of the bracing first ? If not can you explain why ?

    Just a trick that I’ve learned in my years of restoring antique furniture as a weekend warrior. I have a hot plate that I put my thin flexible paint scrappers in and get them hot and I then start pushing it under whatever it is like your bridge plate to bring up works well because the heat loosens the glue back up and I use this on glue blocks that are attached to veneer and stuff like that. I think that’d be really useful on getting the bottom off of a guitar and would be perfect for that bridge plate.
