Here Tim has fabricated an entire back for the body of this venerable Guild D40 (presented in a shocking condition and documented in our Friday, December 4th, 2009 blog entry). Not only has Tim cut and fitted the piece perfectly, he's done it using the original braces, the original binding and, to top it off, saving and reapplying the original label on the inside.
Don't think for a second that just because your guitar is smashed almost beyond recognition that it can't be resuscitated! We've had guitars come to us in garbage bags and depart in museum quality. Tim especially relishes this kind of work.
