Drop Filling 'How To' Video

Post by Barry on Thu Sep 27, 2012 11:42 am

Stewart MacDonald tends to evoke strong reaction. People seem to either love 'em or hate 'em, and nearly everyone agrees they ain't cheap.
Still, they do carry an amazing range of excellent products for guitar enthusiasts, and, they do offer a lot of useful information for free. They also have Dan Erlewine, perhaps the best known luthier on the planet. And he's been doing it, it seems, forever.

The subject of drop filling has come up here from time to time, and there have been descriptions offered in posts, including by our buddy and master restorer, Trevor, over at the Mats forum: Trevor Link

I just received this nice little video of Erlewine's which very succinctly outlines how to do a drop fill. I thought it might be of interest to the general membership and of particular help to those attempting to do it for the first time: Drop Fill Video Link

Nice one Barry.

Particularly like the "strip sanding" technique and will have to try it.
