Pete's 1963 Martin 0018 Restoration
Neck reset, refret, new nut and saddle

Saddle cut way too low due to forward neck angle
High action with buzzy sitar like tone due to no break angle

Steaming neck off

Hide glue needs to be removed

Cleaned and prepped

Cutting the new neck angle

Repairing the top cracks near the pickguard
Cleat added to prevent the pickguard from lifting and opening cracks

The taller saddle and greater string break angle transmits more energy into the top
