Join the Fretboard Journal's Jason Verlinde and acclaimed luthiers Mark Stutman (Folkway Music) and TJ Thompson (Pro Luthier Tools) for this informative class on the care, feeding and collecting of vintage acoustic guitars.

Over the course of this discussion, Mark and TJ will discuss variations between pre-war and collectible Martins and Gibsons, some of the most common issues they find on their repair benches and how to avoid them. We'll talk about restoration work, neck resets, proper storage and shipping. At the end of the class, we'll field questions from the audience on the buying, selling and preserving of these unique instruments.
