“Dear Sir,
A few months ago I placed my first order with you and built my very first guitar. Ovangkol back and sides with Sitka top.
I have been a craftsman for a number of years, rebuilding antique pianos, including making new soundboards and bridges, and decided to try my hand at guitars after buying a Taylor 814ce.
The results of my first attempt were surprising, to me and to others. Since I'm a bit "old-school" I built it entirely by hand, no table saw, router, joiner etc. (I did use a drill press!). I have already received requests for custom made guitars, and from a store interested in selling them.
It really helped to find quality supplies, all in one place, so I could start this experiment - which may just turn out to be my next and final career.
Many Thanks.
ps. I have just placed a second order so I can start making a few more......”

Jack Fishing Tool

SpecialtyJackfishingtoolinUse2EEJ450Once again, Frank Ford has come up with a great tool idea. Simply thread your jack fishing tool through the hole you have pre-drilled in your end block and up through your soundhole/f-hole. Snap your pre-wired endpin jack onto the installer pull back through the guitar. Install washers and nuts and tighten. Jack installation couldn't be easier.

Frank designed this tool in 3 configurations so it can be used in almost every type of guitar. The eighteen-inch long rod provides easy access from the outside, so you can pull the jack down through the guitar's length to position it in the endpin hole. The short rod tool is great for pulling jacks up through the face of thinner body instruments, and the flexible rod tool allows you to reach inside more complex areas and is nice for working through f-holes.
