A bolt on Epi Les Paul with a few high frets in for a setup. After addressing the problematic frets, the rest of the setup was fairly straightforward. But a bolt on Les Paul just feels wrong ...

The fret ends all along the fret ends were loose and lifting so I hammered them back down. This fret was stubborn and would just pop back up like a diving board so it needed to be glued and clamped into submission.
Pre-tour tune up :: 2001 Gibson SG [7.3 lbs]
Jonathon of Tigerman WOAH dropped by to have his SG checked out for an upcoming run down to Nashville, TN. Those who have been following the shop for some time will recognize this well-played workhorse. It's been in for a broken control cavity, broken headstock, broken strap button screws, etc. This time it was in for a high fret. Check out the vlog to see the problem fret addressed.
New nut, high fret & top crack :: Giannini GWNC1/7 7-string classical [4.3 lbs]
A seven string classical with the low string tuned to A came in for some buzzes and a small top crack repair. There was a high fret that needed to be ground down and blended in with the others along with a fresh bone nut to address some open string buzzes. While replacing the nut I had to do quite a bit of work to true up the nut slot as the original nut was poorly seated and gaps filled with glue. This guy sounds like a monster in the right hands!
