We're takin your butter knife away from you and your chisel too.
Just imagine the splinters!
Yeah, this is the new SE - "Splinter Edition".
You might send the pics over to the PTC guys and see what they recommend.
The guitar would need to be stripped to bare wood. Then the damaged area would need to be squared off and a new block of wood glued into place. The new block of wood would then need to be cut down to match the carve of the original top. Then the finishing process would begin. It's not an impossible job, but the amount of work required makes it a net loss.
For real. Even I don’t feel tempted or compelled to try and fix this one. And there’s not enough tequila in the world for me to consider it for $900-ish.
I think it's pretty rad!
The Gucci fabric needed would cost way too much.
Man, this guy didn't give a sh!t, he wanted to reach those upper frets and nothing was getting in his way.
I wonder how calloused his left hand is from noodling around all that splintery bare wood.
You sound like you've seen this movie before...
Couldn't the PTC take the bout completely off and then take a reject body with a good lower bout and cut the replacement section off the reject? Then just fit and glue on. Given that the replacement was already carved, would that get it close to financially feasible? You would have to make it an opaque paint job, but if one could get the guitar at a low enough price, could it be reasonable?
Damn beavers have no respect...
Didn't mean to disparage your environment brother.
Haha, it's all good. Like I said, those things are true. Also, people do crazy stuff here because of the heat. It's a cooler day today, only 108 outside. We've had several days in the 114-115 range this month.
Been sayin’ it for years.
someone needs to track him down and beat him half to death!
So....have it sent to PTC, upon arrival throw it in the dumpster, send him a new guitar with the bill and a note saying he got a repair discount.
You need to fix this one first.
Those damn beavers are everywhere.
That's more baby shark shark shark
