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.
Top Crack Repair
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!
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.
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.
