A customer brought this newly-acquired used-guitar into my shop for a routine setup. However, one look into the sound hole of the guitar revealed a cracked back brace.
Top Crack on An Acoustic Guitar
This Martin guitar came in with a crack in its soundboard. The customer was understandably quite upset because a different tech had recently repaired a crack repaired in virtually the exact same spot!
Bridge Re-Glue Project
This nylon string guitar came in with the bridge fully off of it! More often than not this type of repair comes in with only a portion of the bridge lifted, which necessitates removal in order to repair properly.
Hand Carved Bone String Nut
Nuts! This customers Gibson Les Paul Studio came into my shop with a broken string nut. In this particular case, the instrument had taken a fall and as a result the nut broke off right at the slot for the low E string.
