Thought a few of you might get a giggle out of this, check out the 3rd photo, which way do you turn the nut to adjust that truss rod, or is this what they mean by neck bending?

Now i KNOW why I gave up any idea at all of getting into gtr repair..
42 degrees elevation,67% longitude and a bowl of broken soup for the truss rod.

Should be compulsory for all people aobut to embark on their own repairs. Did you see the one where someone had replaced the tuners on a Guild Steel Strung guitar with Classical machine heads, therefore having to cut through the headstock so that the tuners would work? Why, oh why, would someone do that?

Oh my god, that's the kind of stuff that makes me sure that some people have too much money, too much time on their hands, and absolutely NO TASTE and common sense. The art work on the Martin was just as ugly as it gets...

LOL I think my favourite is the 'Iron Maiden' guitar case! This stuff proves that foolproofing will always be stymied by really determined idiots!

Did you see though, that the case actually worked? That was the funniest thing, the fact that the padding went out far enough to protect the guitar from the screws. Talk about serenditpity. But oyu're right, the more fool proof you make something, the more foolish people become in order to "beat the system" as it were.

Oh the twisted mind of man, they say that Necessity is the Mother of invention, sometimes it's probaly best to leave that mother alone

I made a fretless guitar outta my dad's Levin acoustic jazz guitar, following the old Jaco Pastorious recipe (pliers and epoxy glue). Cool for eastern stuff, though.

Sounds cool to me, hope your Dad didn't mind, my kids have modified a few of my guitars, but only with chips, dents, dings and a broken lock nut, maybe I should hide the pliers!
