So I’ll leave it up to your imagination with this one… What’s amazing about this is just how many pieces it shattered into. Our customer just wants it playing again, and even likes the idea of it looking post-destroyed….so all we need to do is glue it back together. Easy, right?
Part two. That was the hard part. Mainly because the guitar broke in such a way the pieces were not lining up as well as hoped. Clamping surface is minimal which makes it quite difficult. There is also the fact that we didn’t have all the missing pieces….
Part three, the most difficult. Instead of making some massive jigs to clamp the guitar together, I decided to use a clamping system that would essentially do the same. Because of the delicate nature of this repair, it was a more efficient choice in getting the job done.
