One of the cracks had previously tried to be repaired with superglue, which made the repair harder still. The top was also badly warped in the surrounding area,
We first glued back the lifting top, then repaired the side damage and rebuilt the edge binding. We then built up layers of nitrocellulose lacquer to even out the top and protect the repaired breaks!
Although the customer wasn’t concerned about aesthetics, we wanted to blend the repair the best we could!
At the same time the frets were recrowned and hand polished, along with a setup and a K&K pure mini pickup fitted!
