Hi Harrison. Was hoping you could answer a few questions i have about removing ladder bracing from an old Harmony H162 and replacing with x bracing. I would love a rundown on your complete process. As of now, I  have the neck removed and the back removed but am stumped on a way to remove the top braces in a non destructive way. Also, Love to see guitars made from white oak. I recently picked up a turn of the century parlor with white oak back and sides that sounds and looks incredible.

I desperately need one of those wrenches for adjusting the Baldwin era truss rod. Would you sell me one? Thanks, Gary

Thanks for the offer!  I'll see if I can make it out to Davis sometime.  Your website looks great, awesome stuff!  Love the rehabilitation of the cheapie classics...I'd love to hear what some of those X-brace conversions sound like.

Thanks for the offer, Harrison - I have next week off, so I'll give you a call. I also have a friend, Ray Frank, who would probably enjoy a field trip as well, if that is okay with you.
