For want of a nail....

The gentleman who owns this pretty vintage Gibson Hummingbird choose to upgrade and repair the guitar with a neck reset, a refret, a new rosewood bridge as well as a new bone saddle and bone nut. This complete and necessary refurbishing yielded excellent results except for one little problem. An intermittent buzz/rattle, only at certain times and only on certain notes, often not repeatable and, ultimately, very frustrating. Until Gary, nosing around with the instrument in his lap, solved the mystery. He tightened the strap button.
