John replied to Skip Keane's discussion Need some help...? in the group Guitar Makers
"Very cool.  Pictures would be nice.  It will be interesting to see if all the parts can be made to fit together.  If there are Guild markings you may want to remove/obscure if you put something together.  Although he probably…"

John replied to Darren Forbes's discussion Repairing Nitrocellulose Lacquer in the group Guitar Makers
"If I am adding retarder to my stock for spraying I use around 3% (4oz/gal).  Consider this as part of any thinner normally added to spray stock.  You can also use a 75/25 thinner/retarder to mist spray onto a finish that has blush or mild…"

"I have thought about “sealing” the inside of an instrument but shied away so far because, in part, no historical “great” guitar or luthier employed this (to my knowledge).  I did run across this Taran…"

"Lauren ~ Just for the record, both toluene and xylene are quickly oxidized in the body and excreted in the urine.  Neither stay in your liver.  A very small amount may hang around in fatty tissue for 2 or 3 days but certainly are not there…"

"I would really recommend getting a new saddle, StewMac or LMI.  They tend to be cut a bit thick (9/32 or so) so you can sand them down to something between a press and slip fit.  My experience has been that getting a shim to fit just right…"
