This photo clearly shows the lifting of the bridge posts, it can happen for a few reasons, normally tremolo abuse is the main cause, but in this instance I believe the wood has slightly shrunk due to it's age.
The bridge and posts were removed, the area underneath was cleaned and the lacquer that was lifted by one of the posts was resealed back to the body.
After the bridge posts holes were cleaned, the bridge posts were glued back into place so the guitar would stay in tune so it could be setup!
It also had some wiring problems including a faulty jacksocket which was sorted before it was ready to be collected by the customer
This vintage Epiphone S300 was recently in the workshop for a setup, wiring problems and it's bridge posts needed some attention and sorting, after they had started to rise out of the guitar making it impossible to setup
