A walnut slope shoulder dread in for a new bone nut, saddle and bridge pins. The player had attempted to remove the original finished-in nut himself and ended up damaging the finish so we opted to touch up around the nut. The guitar was also amplified with a K&K Pure Mini installation on the bridge plate.

Shipping Damage & Bridge Re-glue :: 1971 Guild D25 Brown [4.2 lbs]
An all-mahogany Guild dreadnought that came in with significant shipping damage on the bass side. The side cracks were glued and the finish repaired to help hide the damage. We also found that the bridge was lifting and cracked through the pin holes, so it was removed, repaired and re-glued.
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.
