Each comes with an oil tanned #Hoween leather razor strop and red plaid storage sleeve (sewn from old-stock #filson cloth). #straightrazor #wetshaving #shave #shaving #handcrafted #vintage #blade #steel #finewoodworking #tonewood #whatsonyourbench

The right @stewmac_guitar pullers and a chip guard don’t hurt either. #fender #fenderguitar #stratocaster #guitar #tone #luthier #luthier #guitarrepair #singlecoil #refretting #straightnecksandtallsaddles #heystewmac #whatsonyourbench

Don’t fret, this won’t hurt a bit...

Refretting a maple Fender neck doesn’t have to be painful. Just out of frame is my soldering station with a custom tip to heat each fret before it is delicately plucked. #fender #fenderguitar #stratocaster #guitar #tone #luthier #luthier #guitarrepair #singlecoil #refretting #straightnecksandtallsaddles #heystewmac #whatsonyourbench

Gold foil and a string-through steel—doesn’t get much finer. @ecguitars brings in the sweetest gear. #teletuesday #telecaster #slideguitar #guitar #tone #blakemills #rycooder #luthier #electricguitar #tele #singlecoil #whatsonyourbench

And time has taken its toll. As many did back then, Guild glued pickguards directly onto their unfinished guitar top, spraying lacquer overtop to seal them on. Over time the shrinking pickguard fought the movement of top leading to cracks from fingerboard to bridge. You can feel the guitar relax as soon as you set it free. #luthier #guitar #acousticguitar #guild #tone #guitarrepair #skagitvalley #finewoodworking #heystewmac #whatsonyourbench
