2014 Martin Custom X Series D :: high pressure laminate explosion

This X series Martin Dreadnought has high pressure laminate (HPL, Formica, etc) back and sides.  The guitar slipped off of a strap and fell onto a hardwood floor.  The back broke loose from the treble side (neck-to-tail block) through the linings.  The first back brace was also split on the bass side.  Here everything is being glued back together with a combination of spool clamps, cam clamps, scissor jack and brace jack.  Luckily this was not solid mahogany, else the damage would have been much worse.
