Here’s a repair that got caught up in the lockdown. This Freshman acoustic was brought in to have it’s broken headstock repaired!
Below pictures showing the gluing process and after the gluing process the task of smoothing off the headstock and refinishing could begin.
On the front of the headstock a wood insert was made and glued into the crack on the edge. Another small insert was glued into a small chip out in the side of the neck.
The lacquer on the back of the neck was lightly polished to give a worn in played feel a look matching the rest of the guitar neck.
