This 1921 Gibson came to us in pieces. It had been upstairs in an attic for years. It was severely dehydrated and the back was in three pieces.
We needed to re-glue and add a thin slice of wood for expansion. The majority of the back had to be re-glued to the kerfing and sides. The first three frets of the fret board were replaced along with an unknown light-colored wood species. This was removed and replaced with Rosewood from that era. The fret board was leveled and new frets installed.
The whole guitar had been stripped at some point, but we were able to soften and spread out some of the remaining original finish.
This was an exciting guitar to work on. It was almost thrown away, but we brought it back to life. Now the owner is enjoying his fully restored guitar that his grandfather played.
