Guitar Magic

So, here is the story in short in case you are not interested in watching the video : : : last week my prize possession--my Gibson J200--would not play a note above the 5th or 6th fret. I took it in to have it looked at and they told me there was a BEND IN THE NECK!!!

I take great care of my guitars. I store them properly. I keep them (I thought) in the proper humidity at all times. I was a tornado of anger.

Then, Jesus sent an angel. I have known him for awhile so I guess you could say I've been entertaining angels unaware. If you think I am overreacting : : : you probably don't own a guitar.

My friend Craig at Playford Music saved the day by teaching me a remedy that I hadn't heard about in over 20 years of guitar playing (although this is my first bad neck incident).

This video teaches the remedy in detail.

Bottom line : : : my guitar is good as new. The planets have aligned.
