Fingerboard extension top crack splint :: 2007 Pavan TP-30 [3.9 lbs]
This classical has a nasty crack in the top that runs along the bass side of the fingerboard clean into the sound hole. The crack had loosened the fingerboard brace so that was addressed first. Two cleats were then fit and glued to support the break (one along the fingerboard, one just inside the sound hole). This crack was far too open to just glue up (even with humidifying), so a thin spruce splint was fit, glued and trimmed into the crack with a minor color touch up to better match the top.
