This guitar was brought to me with some serious bass side damage- the owner had been keeping time on the side with his hand during a break and had cracked the side badly. The cracks ran from the shoulder all the way to the bout. This owner prefers to keep his guitars really dry and this contributed to the extent of the damage. The Gibson has a couple of other previously repaired cracks and cosmetically it is not in great condition. The owner simply wanted the cracks repaired to the point of stability and the area sealed against moisture. This is adequate and less costly than an invisible factory quality finish repair. This photo gallery shows how even a very bad crack can be adequately repaired.
