    Hey everyone,
    longtime lurker/browser, infrequent poster...

    I will be attending a three month g**tar building/repair course starting next week(actually, I'm leaving this Saturday AM). :eek: Does anyone have any suggestions for "areas" of the craft to pay extra attention to? By "area" I mean...What do you wish you would have had "pro" help with when first starting, or anything you wanted to have a better foundation in... I hope this makes sense. Maybe something like..."installing binding is a pain for me, wish I'd had paid more attention to it early on..." or "I see tons of cracked acoustic tops , that is quite common...I'd focus on top repairs", etc.
    The course covers all the facets but I thought with the combined knowledge of the TBer's, I wouldn't "miss" anything that I would smack myself for later. Sorry for the rambling. Thanks in advance for any thoughts, etc.
    I'll keep checking back for a few days...wish me luck
