This unusual vintage 1960's Klira acoustic was brought into the workshop after being stored in a attic for many years.
The main issues were seized machineheads with missing/fragile peg buttons and the bridge had been lost years ago. A new zero nut would also need to be made to replace the original one that was also missing.
The nut slot had been cut at an angle, which meant that the new zero nut would have to be cut, trying to hide the miss cut slot. Adjusting the nut slot would not be a good idea on a vintage instrument.
The bone nut shape was carefully calculated so the end result, there was only a small overhang on one side of the nut.
A vintage bridge was also sourced and modified to complete the restoration. The guitar was then gently cleaned and restrung to bring it back to it's former glory.
