This vintage Martin was picked up this morning after having it's bridge reglued, a couple loose back brace ends secured and an overall cleaning. The owner's mother purchased this guitar for her brand new in 1961 for $160! After 55 years together, she is looking to sell it so please feel free to contact me if you are interested.

A vintage Martin classical came in with it's bridge removed. I cleaned up the mating surfaces, made a few custom clamping cauls (one internal, three external) and reglued the bridge with hot hide glue.
This M-20 has been in the shop multiple times now for bridge reglues. Seems it likes to fail yearly most likely due to the fact it is so thin in the wings. I am trying to hold off on replacing the bridge until the guitar needs a neck reset. But really I think the guitar is pissed I did this to it's brother.
