Binding dings :: Lowden 025C [4.8 lbs]

This Lowden took a wild ride across a cement floor when it was yanked from a stand by it's plugged-in cable.  The body took a few rough hits and cracked the binding on one edge and dinged the finish on others.  The cracked binding was glued and all the dings were filled and blended in with the surrounding finish.  I was amazed this guitar somehow dodged more serious structural issues like cracks, holes, etc.

Neck reset final fit :: 1969 Guild Mark III

Whew! Guild neck resets are always a little more involved but this guy is just about ready to glue up. Guilds use a shallow dovetail angle so the fit is more critical than others. Time to buff out the finish repairs around the joint, glue, clamp and drink a beer.
