A client brought me his great buy a 68 Martin D28 Brazillian {700.00},nice straight grain.The bridge was starting to pull up and an some idiot who owned it before instead of having the job done right had put super glue then added white glue to adhere it back down.It has taken me 4 hours to clean the top.





Sorry for the rant but after 50 years of doing repairs.Sometime's I just need to scream and since I'm alone I also need to have someone hear me.So you all are stuck with it.



AAAAARRRRRRRRRRRHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH.Thanks for listening.

Everything but a nail gun nail,Nuts and Bolts,assorted srcew's,assorted glue's and other crap but this was the first time it took me 4 hours to clean just the top.I took the torch and razor to the bridge bottom about 45 min. to clean it.

Charge them accordingly and make them aware of it.

Well, good that you were able to clean it up, finally, without structural damage.  Would be interesting to see some pics of the process and the outcome.

I never remember to take pix plus my camera that my wife and son bought me about a year ago doesn't seem to want to upload any more.PLUS I'm not smart enough to use it.

Just remember to practice the Zen of guitar repair. If someone hadn't foolishly tried to fix it so poorly, you wouldn't have had the chance to do it and make a buck in the process! Ommmm
Ommmm I will repair this guitar ommmmmm  bowdown
