Yet another broken Gibson headstock repair
This acoustic guitar (the maker will not be outed here) left the factory with a mess of epoxy and very poor top to bridge contact. It came in for a typical lifting bridge repair, but we found a mess inside. Ended up removing all the epoxy, clearing and leveling the spruce top for inlay of a new flat matching spruce patch. Then finally reglued the bridge with hide glue. Better than ever now.
Probably the only step I actually look forward to in an acoustic guitar neck reset is covering my tracks and hiding the tiny hole I drilled to steam apart the neck for repair. The original bridge was toast so it made perfect donor wood.
