I really donít want you to start off on the wrong foot using just any old card and then think that itís not for you. I tell you what. Just go down and get a Subway $25 gift card. Send it to me. Iíll break it in for you. Get it ready for long term use, and then Iíll mail it back. It will be good for a couple years of service.

Truely a generous offer Ryan. Would a $50 card work even better? I like quality tools.

You’re welcome John. In lutherie as in palm reading, you get what you pay for. So, of course a $50 card would be that much better and last that much longer.

Everyone doesnít use an old #4 plane? The way Steve taught me, I figured it was industry standard.

When you are doing that you must hit the top sometimes, is that OK cuz you still have to sand down the top more also? It just seems like that file would leave pretty deep grooves in an already thin top?

Tom, youíre right in that this could be a frightening proposition. Whatís hard to see from this angle is that the end of the file has a couple of wraps of tape around it. This allows is to slide free across the top without biting into the top. The goal is to just make contact with the business edge of the file at the binding. To be sure, much care is taken.

This guitar has a slot head, which makes us run the truss rod out the south end.
That groove accommodates the truss rod, and the tr nut will be accessible from the sound hole.
