Gibson J-100 Re-Neck

TK Smith

I’m getting close to finishing a new neck for this J-100. The guitar was damaged in hurricane Katrina. The body was stripped and refinished by the customer and then sent to me for a neck, C.A.R. pickup mounted in the sound hole and a pick guard. I’ll post more pictures next week.

Inspiration for the week from João Erbetta

Here’s a little Monday morning inspiration. João is working on a new recording using his Tele with some of my early aluminum pickups.  Here’s video we posted a few years ago of him playing the same guitar here. Thanks João, you sound great!

Three Recent TK Smith Pickup Demos

Rodney Gene Jr. posted this inspiring clip last week. He mounted a pair of my Summertone pickups on an Eastwood baritone. I love the results. Check out Rodney’s website here, lot’s of great gear videos and tutorials. He also gives lessons.

And here’s a couple from Travis picker extraordinaire Matt Codina. Matt get’s a great sound from his Tele with C.A.R. pickups. He makes it look so effortless.
