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.

I needed to fabricate a couple custom screw extractors to cleanly remove two broken strap button screws.  The extractors are made from stainless steel tubing sized to fit over the screw with teeth cut into the end.  I sourced the tubing from McMaster-Carr.  The extractors are run counterclockwise in a drill to not risk driving the screw deeper if it grabs.  The broken screws can be seen here.

Look for a blog post coming soon with more details on this guitar.
