"I’m about 10 tops into a stack of 40 cedar tops I got from you, and whenever I want to start a new guitar, I just walk over and pick a top off the stack, and start building.
They are all that great! I don’t have to dink around with the pattern, or select the “best" one: I just start building. I love that!  I just wanted to let you know how much I appreciate your high standards, and what a pleasure it is to do business with you!"


Fret Dolly

Here's another great tool from the workbench of Frank Ford. Frank was looking for a way to install frets over the guitar body without resorting to heavy and cumbersome tools or bags of buckshot. He designed the simple yet very effective tool pictured here. The Fret Dolly can be held by the handle as shown, or you can reach in the soundhole and support it from beneath. The head is reversible to enable you to work around braces and support the area right under the fret you're working on.
