Blown Up Sides :: Breedlove AD25/SM

This family heirloom was damaged on an international flight that crushed the guitar across the lower bout.  The sides are broken free from the back through the linings in two places.  The back also has multiple loose braces and cracks that will be addressed once the sides are re-secured.  Part of the damage can be seen below.

Pulling dents & closing cracks :: 1971 Guild D25M

This side crack was damaged during shipping (shown here).  Here is a dent that is being pulled shut with a guitar string, a cleat puller and a mahogany cleat inside the guitar.  The spool clamps are closing the remaining crack.  Next up will be installing a few more cleats on this crack, then addressing a couple other side cracks.
