Professional Setups for Ordinary People!
- Cracks -
Removing and replacing a top to do proper crack repairs is a very
costly repair. It's a 2 man job, but I have the help and expertise of
friend and mentor Jeff Thomson when I need it. I would need to
see the instrument to make an estimate, but before you panic, I've
succeded in some cases with a "String Cleat" repair.
Although it's not as reliable as a traditional repair, it's an affordable
option that's worked for me and my customers a number of times. I've
been able to make instruments playable again in situations where the
cost of removing the top to do a traditional repair exceeded the value
of the instrument.
Give me a call or shoot me an email and we can make arrangements
to make the appropriate repair.
