Watch how furniture restorer restores a guitar
This guitar was made by Olbrei & Co, in Tallinn, somewhere between 1907-1940. Restoring a guitar was quite a challenge for me. In this video you will see, did I succeed or not.

In the guitar world often less is more. Making it playable with minimal refinishing would probably have been preferable for most collectors/musicians.

@Grargle Jobber Yeah 54 strats have bolt on necks too. Care to price on of those? Screw on necks were popular on European guitars in this period because they could be adjusted for correct action. C.F. Martin also used a similar construction when he worked in Europe. The idea has come back into fashion with Taylor starting to use bolt on construction and many factories and luthiers following their lead. What you also see on this guitar is first class tone wood, a lovely bridge with mother of pearl inlay and very elaborate binding and purfling. Not a cheap guitar at all.

@Grargle Jobber Yes, it's totally subjective as far as tone goes. Speaking only for myself, I haven't heard anything in a guitar with a fitted neck that makes me prefer them categorically to bolt-ons. I have a Martin Authentic OM (dovetail) and a Collings OM (bolt-on), both with mahogany back and sides and Adirondack spruce tops, both with similar light bracing modeled after Martin's thirties guitars. Both sound very nice but I prefer the crispness and clarity of the Collings for the stuff I play (mostly fingerpicked blues and ragtime). But someone else (a singer/songwriter for example) well might prefer the somewhat mellower tone of the Martin. Most non-players wouldn't really notice any difference.

@Bob DeVellis It seems like you know enough to weigh in, so I guess we'll just have to disagree. Once you get to this sort of argument, playing what you think sounds better side by side with what you think sounds worse, it becomes really difficult to moderate.

@Grargle Jobber I'm not familiar with the current Baby Taylor's but those of a few years ago had bolt- on as do Taylor's higher end models. Plus lots of boutique guitars have a bolt-on neck Martin's better guitars have always had fitted necks and that company's status has fostered the belief that only a dovetail neck joint is suitable for a good guitar. Many new builders have proven otherwise. Even guitars with no wood-to-wood contact between neck and body (like Rick Turner's Howe-Orme which I was fortunate enough to have my hands on briefly) can sound fantastic. Not a thing wrong with bolt-on necks. Some still prefer dovetails as a symbol of old time craftsmanship and I can appreciate that sentiment. But for tone, bolt-ons are every bit as good as dovetails and offer a host of practical advantages.

@Bob DeVellis I'm pretty sure Taylor's entry-level big baby doesn't have a bolt-on neck.

Using heat when disassembling will soften the glue. The frets should probably be replaced, and the neck angle adjusted to compensate for how much a ladder-braced guitar is going to "fold up" under string tension. Also, attention should be shown to the bridge and bridge plate. I don't think many Luthiers would have stripped the old finish. But, it's an interesting guitar.

@Kenz Not really. The basic principles are the same whether you are restoring an instrument, a painting, antique furniture or any other kind of art. Restoration should not damage the object you are trying to restore and everything you do should be reversible. Perhaps in a few years the market will decide that this instrument is worth a massive amount of money in original condition. In that case the owner just lost a massive amount of money, and paid for the privilege. It would not be the first time this has happened.

@Adamfront Restoring what? It depends, doesn't it?
Adamfront 22 gün önce
@Kenz It's more about the culture of restoration. The idea is to preserve as much as possible. This instrument told a story of how the original craftsmen worked, the tools and materials they used. That story is gone now.

It's really interesting to see what another style of woodworker thinks is important when restoring and instrument. There's some overlap like fixing the cracks and filing off the end of the frets, but a luthier would have ignored the finish entirely to focus on the braces, neck, nut, bridge and saddle. Gotta say, it looked fantastic in the end.

I'm amazed that the frets were still in such good condition. I recently worked on a 1946 Dutch made guitar restoration project. the thing that wasn't salvageable were the frets. They are manufactured from brass which has corroded, become soft and brittle. The one decision I am faced with is whether or not I try and salvage the original frets or have it fitted with new fret wire. Thanks for the interesting video. I would call it more of a rebuild than a restoration, but you did a great job. Well done.

@Robert Davidson I've never made the connection between the word fret, as in guitar frets and the verb " to fret over something". Strange. Fret is also a word used to describe something being worn away, I think, hence fret wire, wire that helps to avoid the fret board being worn away by the strings. That's a whole lot of frets right there. Cheers.

I love so many of the design details, the binding and sound hole rosette, the shape of the bridge, the way the fretboard end is shaped, the headstock ... I wonder why modern guitar manufacturers don't recreate these appointments. I guess Martin just set "new" standards that became the only desirable look, and the most other makers do is create slight variations. But I'd buy a new guitar that looks like this one in a heartbeat.

Outstanding job. Loved your solution to resolving the size of the back once it’s taken off and the sides of the guitar spread -that worked great. The figuring on the back and sides is stunning. I’l not seen the bracing reattached that way before and your solution to clamping for reattaching the back is excellent. Superb result in the end. The only other thing I would have done was to have levelled and polished the frets. I enjoyed that video immensely. Cheers 👍

Okay, so I guess it depends on what the goal was. if it was to make an old guitar a prettier object, then it was an unqualified success. But it wasn't what anyone with knowledge of musical instruments would call a guitar restoration. First, restoration implies getting something back to what it was. This was more -- and less -- than that. He's a skilled craftsman to be sure but his unfamiliarity with guitars is very evident. I don't think that this was ever a superb instrument. But it could have been restored more thoughtfully. Some of the things it most needed (like replacing the block under the bridge and dressing the frets) weren't done. It would also have been advisable to check the neck angle rather than assuming (as he apparently did) that just reattaching the neck at its pre-dsassembly angle was sufficient. Some other things that it didn't need (like having the original finish sanded off and replaced) were. When the knife wouldn't easily separate the top from the ribs, some moist heat likely would have done the job more effciently and safely than further prying. It might have been a good idea to take the back off to get to the innards while leaving the top in place. The soundboard and its bracing are the soul of a guitar and messing with it as little as possible has the advantage of doing minimal damage to tone and integrity (although the tone may not have been spectacular on this particular instrument to start with). A careful internal inspection before any disassembly might have given some guidance as to what needed to be done and how it could be approached. Perhaps this was done. I'm confident that this guy is a very capable woodworker and furniture restorer. He has great tools and knows how to use them. But if you go to any site that shows how a luthier restores an old guitar, I think you'll see that it's a task that requires a very different approach than a piece of furniture does. But, if the owner was happy with the result and the intent was more cosmetic than functional and more about beautifying than restoring to optimal playability and tone, then it's all good. Those are perfectly legitimate goals. I just hope no one mimics this approach on a valuable old guitar worthy of true restoration.

I worked in picture framing and did furniture restoration for 45 years. You can never have enough clamps:) or variety of glues. You have really beautiful equipment in your shop, we had good stuff, but I would liked to have gotten my hands on yours. The right equipment makes all the difference and I'm still amazed at what those 16,17 and 18th century craftsmen were able to achieve. I remember restoring a table and harp back chairs, It took forever to sand the chairs, I had to create all kinds of minnie tools to get in the grooves with sandpaper, talk about labor intensive! Finally, I REALLY like how you retained the old look while restoring the sound. Your show is lots of memories for me. Cheers, Frederick "Rik" Spector

For the people who are freaking out, keep in mind that old parlor guitar were anyway not super high quality instruments, so it's not like if he had committed a crime.

Nice renovation! After seeing the interior bracing pattern, I recommend switching to nylon strings. Guitars of this era weren't designed for the tension of steel strings. 🙂
antônio Faria
antônio Faria 28 gün önce
@Professional Procrastinator actually no, you can even find nylon strings with pegs (not sure if this is the name in english but, i am talking about that end part of the steel string) in it, nylon would just be better in my opinion. Actually the bridge probably can't take the tension of a normal steel string, this guitar is maybe built even before the development of steel strings, but either way the guitar is very old and apparently very fragile as well, the steel strings with normal tension can probably break the guitar in a couple years. I had seen a lot of guitars that had the top ripped of by the bridge because of string tension. And the sound with nylon would be SOOO much better, really this is one of the worst sounding guitar that i've ever heard, and these strings just make it worst.

It's rare to see a time honored instrument like this in such good overall shape. Nice video! Oh, and that was a two piece, book matched back to begin with. That's why it cracked straight down the middle the way it did. The repair was perfect.

Well, I read all the comments and many good points were made. It was good work and enjoyable video so I was happy. I would assume some research was done being it still had its makers mark and a relative value figured out before this work was done. If the customer was happy it’s a win. A thing belongs to the owner and they could have made a flower planter from it if they liked. I’m currently doing repairs on a 6string acoustic with a value of $300 and I have nearly 40hours in it! Obviously feelings not logic is the motivation for something like that. It belonged to her deceased father and was almost hopelessly shattered in an accident. I’ve lost count of the glue ups and I work it in my “spare time”.

The woodworking was absolutely incredible and I was in awe with the quilted figure in the back. It would be great to have a follow up video of this instrument being setup by a guitar luthier and see it grow to its full potential as well!

I'm not a luthier nor a woodworker but the outcome looks and sounds fine. If the owner is pleased then it is a success.

I enjoyed this video, I guess there are two schools of thought on refinishing, to me, "refinishing" is a complete job, "refurbish" is what was presented here. I, personally would have refinished the front as well...others like the distressed look...I would want to create the look of a brand new piece...just like it came from the store...before being abused/loved. good job!

NICE to add life back into a guitar. Much more studier and playable. Looks still vintage but newer. GREAT.

Conservation, preservation, and restoration are all distinctly different approaches to managing things from the past.

Fascinating. Satisfying. I can watch stuff like this all day long. That guitar obviously was well loved in it's day, and it's so cool that you brought it back from the edge of oblivion.

Many years ago my stepfather revarnished my Dad’s vintage Harmony Cremona 1940’s guitar with a rosewood tailpiece and it now needs to go to a luthier as any tension on the strings and you can see and hear the problems. He didn’t glue it back together correctly. So now it’ll be about $500 to get it done properly.
