Learn Guitar Repair on DVD


Dan Erlewine’s DVD library is a guitar repair school in eleven volumes.

“Back in 1984 I started teaching guitar repair on videotape. In the decades since, I’m amazed by how many luthiers tell me they got started in the business with the help of these lessons. It’s the greatest feeling to hear that!

“Those old tapes have been replaced by new and better information, and it’s all on DVD now. The newest addition is ‘Bridge Repairs.’

“All my DVDs are sold on my video page at StewMac.com, where you’ll find lots more information, including preview images.”
