Movie Reviews

Good video, good price
Steven Berry | 04/25/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This video gets it done. A no-nonsense run through of electric guitar construction, basic care, upgrades and repair. Good info about when to repair and when to take it to a professional. Excellent soldering instruction. Less material for acoustics, but most acoustic repairs are best left to the pros. If you're an electric guitar tinkerer, this is indespensible information. Why aren't there more videos like this? Fabulous price too; video quality is about on a par with your local PBS channel programming, very acceptable."
Weak Training

"This video was somewhat informative but they never did show you the actual maintenance or repairs being done. They talk about alot of maintenance and setup information but never come through with a visual of what they are explaining. If all your looking for is general guitar care and repair information and not "How To" instructions, then this is the DVD for you. I hate to say but I will be tossing this video. I did get a good one that John Carruthers (Carruthers Gutars) is on and he shows you what he is talking about and how to do most everything he is addressing on the video. See the reviews on "Alfred's Teach Yourself Guitar Repair and Maintenance"."

"This poorly produced "home video" may be helpful for those who really only need the introductory information. However, when advanced topics arise, the two hosts simply tell the viewer to "consult with your local luthier..." I purchased this video to avoid paying my local luthier! Lastly, many of the camera angles are so poor that you literally cannot see some of the repairs. Oh well, at least it was under ten bucks!"
