    Hi Randy
    Being spending a lot of time with your buddy Jerry Rosa** Jerry seems like he is burnt out
    and will be cutting back on his repairs**He has a lot of work to do to keep up with that large place- lot of buildings to take care of..

    Will the tite bond adhere to itself? And can you tell what kind of glue was used on that brace?

    I wonder what happened to the guitar to have all those problems? Oh, too dry! I get it now. I keep the humidity in my guitar room between 50% and 60%. Is that enough?

    I have a complaint Randy, too many smoke bubbles and no where near enough Earl and Q. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Just my 2 cents… Both raw and boiled linseed oil will work but there is a difference. Both are drying oils — they dry to a hard surface before they go rancid. The raw oil is what's squeezed right out of the flax seeds. It takes longer to dry — on the order of a week or more. The pluses are that by drying slower it helps the wood retain moisture and if used for painting lets the paint level out better. It wears better and seems the better choice for paints outdoors and fingerboards where greasy, acidic fingers are going play on it.
    Boiled oil has varnishes and dryers added to the raw oil. It isn't boiled, the varnishes are boiled to create them. It drys in 24 hours. It's better for indoor stuff like furniture. It's really the only choice for a repairman. You can't have a customer's instrument sitting around the shop for a week waiting for the oil to dry. If the fingerboard's really dried out it might be worth the additional protection of raw oil after it's rehydrated and repaired.

    Hi Randy, You can't really overshow your vids. Unlesd you are doing repair all the time you can't review this stuff too much. Now a Cue fix is different cuz we twoyuberz need it fer ser! Earl? Unless you've been out to sea for 11 years ya don't need em. Course he does remind me a bit of my exwife but she used her tounge diffetently,,,,Earl is much more quiet. Oh Raaaaandeee Raaaaaaandee! You need a tounge depressor and a damn big one at that. So Thanks for the great review. It is appreciated. I'll get on my wife's pc and get your address. I have goodies to send you and I don't want to let it go longer. I've been getting a care package together for you a good while. Hope it warmed up there some. Finally did here a bit. Almost time to air out Earl's tutu. Ooooooweeeee! Scarey! DaveyJO

    Good Ol' Linseed…
    I keep a Few $ Store Facecloths Aside that I Apply That with.
    Cloths don't leave Dust, and they seem to Spread the Oil, without taking as much Away as U Go, at a Time.
    Then I just hang 'em Outside as Is, to Dry on the Line.
    Then I Wash & Dry 'em like any other Cloth, and that way, I always have them on hand.

    Awesome work! Randy is an ebony fretboard smoother to play than rosewood? I've heard ebony is better. Thanks.

    I bet sometimes you wish the sound holes were bigger or you had smaller hands!
