This late 90's SCGC has been in the shop before and is back in for more structural issues. Two nagging top cracks need to be addressed along with a few loose back braces. Below is a video of gluing up the rear treble side back brace end.

Sharp fret ends & center seam crack :: 2014 Maton EBG808C "Michael Fix" [4.3 lbs]
Another victim of a long, dry New England winter. The fret ends were sticking out from the unbound fingerboard and the top's center seam had opened up slightly just behind the bridge. The fret ends were dressed and the top crack humidified closed, glued and cleated along with a minor finish touch up.
Setup :: 2012 Taylor 816CE [5.1 lbs]
This Taylor came in with low action. After a few days hanging in a humidity-controlled shop, the action came up but not up enough so the saddle was shimmed up. Popped in a fresh 9V battery and it's ready to go.
Dried-out Fret Level :: Gitane DG-455 [4.0 lbs]
This past winter took it's toll on this thinline gypsy jazz guitar. The guitar had dried out to the point of the strings touching the frets, along with top cracks along the fingerboard extension. The fingerboard also developed cracks where the frets were pushing out the ends of the board. The cracks were all glued and the sharp / raised frets were leveled and dressed.
Leveling Frets :: Gitane DG-455
This guy had a rough winter. Along with uneven frets, the top dried out so much that the strings were touching the frets when it came in. A few weeks in a humidified shop has brought the action up significantly.
