I have a golden rule that I don't reset necks on guitars that have already had neck resets. The reason is that if they used the wrong glue, I'll ruin the guitar trying to get the neck off it.
Am I being too cautious? It's annoying potential customers.
I also have a golden rule that I only do neck resets on Martins and Gibsons (I feel like you know what you are getting with these companies), but I break that golden rule all the time. Should I start breaking my other neck reset golden rule?
I feel like these rules are seriously losing value. How do you all feel about resetting necks on previously reset necks.
I should point out that the reason why I am asking this question is because a customer has asked me to perform a neck reset on a '53 Martin D-18 which is rare due to it's engelmann top. It's obviously a nice guitar, and I'd hate to discover too late that there's a bunch of epoxy in there or some such thing.
