We visited our friend John Hall at Blues Creek Guitars in Hegins, PA and he walked us through the entire process of a neck reset. In part 1, John shows us how you can diagnose your guitar to see if it needs a neck reset. Please feel free to post your comments and questions below. Please click here to view Part 2.
hey, very interesting video but where's the rest of it?
where he reinstalls the neck.
i've always wondered why a guitar would need a neck reset.

The guitar changes shape over time. The neck block will rotate and the top will dip , this allows the neck to change position and the fret plane drops too low to allow action adjustment by the saddle. Resetting the neck will bring back this geometry and restore the guitars tone.
