Here's an interesting repair done recently at the shop.
It's an old Epiphone Caballero. The original bridge on this guitar was made from plastic and attached to the top with little lag screws. We decided that replacing this with a solid rosewood bridge glued to the top would not only make the guitar more playable but would also improve the sound of the instrument.
Once I got into it, I found that one of the top braces needed to be repaired.
The owner also wanted a Fishman Rare Earth sound hole pickup with an endpin jack installed.
