I think that it would be a great idea to have some "luthier lesson". For instance a lesson that explains how to welding a cable, change pickups, add a killswitch booster or similar or similar.
I scalloped my JEM freatboard and I want to do the same with my Ibanez RG 550 so I think it would be a good idea to record all this procedure and explain it in a lesson. (and I will change my pickups and add more controllers in my guitar, hehe)...

What do you think about this idea ??


And also would be awesome to have a professional luthier that show us how to do all this complicated things and to help us if we decide to aply this knowledge biggrin.gif

For me it's a good idea. Especially about a professional luthier. I don't have so many experience as luthier to do this type of lessons smile.gif

yes, the best option is to have a professional Luthier, but if we cannot have a professional one I could do some basic lessons wink.gif

The idea is great, would like to see some tips smile.gif

In the meantime, does anyone have a tip how to remove the stains on fretboard, if you check my electric guitar lessons you'll se what I mean. I tried with lemon, and with various cleaning cleaning liquids but couldn't remove it.

I do it with FastFret and cloth,isn't easiest job but is possible. smile.gif
Main thing it to remove it every time you change strings,
don't wait too long..

The stains were there when I bought the guitar in 1995, the guitar was made in 89. I don't think they are getting any worse but would like to remove them for good if possible. I'll try with fastfret, thanks for the tip wink.gif

I think that almost any music related topic would work - if produced with the students in mind. In other words it needs to be very easy to understand! smile.gif

yeah, that's the idea, students are the most important, so I think they would thank that we show how to do basic things on the guitar (not only how to change strings but also basic modifications tongue.gif)

Great idea on building the guitars, and soldering. I know how to solder, maybe some cable soldering lessons would be appropriate?
