A really odd crack for a laminate top. This top's outer maple veneer has split and lifted around the bridge pickup rout. I cleaned out the dirt and fit a splint into the crack along with re-gluing the separated veneer. It won't be a pretty repair, but it should keep the crack from spreading.

This 1960's Aria Barney Kessel is back in for another neck set issue. I re-glued the top to the block a few weeks ago but the plywood neck block decided delaminate through one of the plies. I ended up filling the gap with epoxy in an attempt to stabilize the neck joint (video below). Fingers crossed!
